Crucial launches 2.5-inch SSDs

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 16 2008 @ 01:25 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Memory maker Crucial has made its entry into the solid state drive market with 32GB and 64GB SSDs. Both models have read speeds of up to 100MB/s, the 32GB model has a write speed of up to 60MB/s while the 64GB model only has a max write speed of 35MB/s.
Featuring an industry-standard 2.5” form factor, the Crucial SSD has no moving parts. That means lower latency for faster boot times and application loads, lower power consumption, less heat, and no noise. It offers a host data transfer rate of up to 3Gb/s. Plus, it delivers overall system performance improvements with read speeds up to 100MB/s and write speeds up to 60MB/s—and the rugged, shock-and vibrationresistant, temperature-tolerant design hangs tough in even the most extreme operating environments.
The drives feature a 5 year warranty.
