Samsung has announced that it has begun a mass production of 256GB SSDs for notebooks and desktop PCs. These new drives will compliment Samsung's offer of SSDs which ranges from 8, 16 and 32GB for low-density designs and 64, 128 and now 256GB alternatives for the higher densities.

The new 256GB SSDs doubles the performance rates of Samsung's SSDs, as they have rated read and write speeds of up to 220MB/s and 200MB/s respectively. Other specs include a rated power consumption of 1.1W under read/write load and an optional encryption programming that provides full disk encryption.

Unfortunately, the price for this new 256GB hasn't been announced, but it should be available as soon it finds its way to retail/e-tail shelves.
