Toshiba is introducing a new line of SSD drives, coming in 3 capacities: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The drives will ship in volumes in March 2008, according to Toshiba. Here are the specifications:
- SATA2 interface
- 100MB/s peak read speed
- 40MB/s peak write speed
- Average time before failure: 1,000,000 hours
SSD drives usually have better seek-time compared to disk-drives because they don’t have mechanical parts. For the same reason, they also consume less power. However, real-world reading speed might not be superior to a fast disk-drive.
