has announced a new version of its rather affordable solid state drive Core series, at least when you compare it to the rest of the market. The new Core 2 series will be available in 30, 60, 120 and 250GB capacities.
Still packed in a 2.5-inch case, the new Core 2 SSD series will have an improved seek time of less than 0.2 - 0.3ms and a maximum read and write speed of 170MB/s and 98MB/s, respectively. These are great results if you compare them to those of the first Core series, 120 to 143MB/s read speed and 80 to 93MB/s of write speed.
The new SSDs will feature SATA 3.0Gbps and mini USB 2.0 connectivity and will ha a MTBF of 1.5 million hours. The new Core 2 SSD series comes with a two-year warranty and they should hit the European shops soon. The prices of this new SSD series haven't been announced, but they shouldn't be much higher than those of the previously announced first generation of Core SSDs.
