Samsung says solid state will take over HDD market

Posted on Friday, November 17 2006 @ 08:18:21 CET by

Samsung believes NAND memory based solid-state drives are ready for prime time.
Over the past few months, we've seen dozens of announcements about solid-state hard drives. PQI has already announced a 64GB flash drive (which coincidentally, is based on Samsung NAND), which ASUS, Fujitsu, Samsung and Sandisk have all announced products based on solid-state hard drives. Given the fact that the hard drive has been the bottleneck on PC performance for years, the question has to be asked is solid-state technology ready to take us out of the dark ages of storage?
The company points out some advantages of NAND HDDs:
  • Consume less than 200 milliwatts during read/writes, and 0 watts when not being accesses. A normal HDD consumes about 9W.
  • More battery life for notebooks
  • Less chance of failure. Normal HDDs have a MTD of 100,000 to 200,000 hours while a solid-sate disk will last for 1 to 2 million hours.
  • Much faster than normal HDDs.
One of the main disadvantages is the higher price. More details at DailyTech.
