SSD from M-System-SanDisk

Posted on Monday, January 01 2007 @ 03:11:04 CET by

If you wondered why SanDisk bought M-Systems for 1.35 billion dollars a few months ago, we might have the answer. According to exclusive information received in the HWzone.co.il newsdesk, M-Systems is working on SSD (Solid Stated Drives) for the consumer and business markets. And they have Benchmarks screen-shots for you!

" According to our information, M-System-SanDisk is currently working on a new series of drives, which for the first time is aimed at private consumers and not for sole military applications, and have entered an advanced production stage. The new drives are supposed to be marketed as part of a few manufactures' laptop computers, and rumors refer to Dell as being the first to integrate these drives into its Core 2 Duo line of laptops in a number of months.

Preliminary testing of the new drives indicates that in comparison with a Western Digital's SATA 80GB 7200 RPM drive, the M-Systems-SanDisk drive displays a solid and steady read rate. However, the write test displayed the weakness of the new drive, which presents a terrible writing rate compared with a standard HDD, in this current version. The SSD wins the random read test very easily over the HDD, but was a little disappointing in the Burst test."
