SSDs to do 200MB/s this year

Posted on Friday, March 14 2008 @ 22:43:49 CET by

ARS Technica reports second-generation solid state disks will achieve read speeds of 200MB/s and write speeds of 100MB/s:
OCZ's listed MSRP of $499 for the 32GB drive and $1,099 for the 64GB drive won't smash any price barriers, but it will put pressure on the market and thereby lower the cost of lesser drives. As drive capacities continue to grow and interface speeds increase, the high-capacity, high-end models of today will become the budget models of next year, too. OCZ isn't the only player making waves right now with SSD-related announcements.

As we recently discussed, Intel has big plans for the SSD market in 2008 that could rapidly turn today's top-end drive into tomorrow's midrange model. According to Intel CEO Paul Otellini, the company will launch 80GB and 160GB SSDs later this year. These new drives will utilize the Open NAND Flash Interface 2.0 and should be capable of a sustained 200MB/100MB read/write speed. This type of rapid-pace development isn't bad for OCZ and other players—it'll actually allow them to sell more drives at a variety of price points. Consumers, meanwhile, will benefit as well, particularly if the rapid pace of development pushes first-gen drives into the "genuinely affordable" market.
