Super Talent informed us they've released new MasterDrive DX, MasterDrive KX and MasterDrive MX solid state disks with improved write speeds.
Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced that the company has dramatically improved the write speeds of its MasterDrive DX, MasterDrive KX and MasterDrive MX solid state drives (SSDs).

These three series of SSDs already boast exceptionally fast read speeds of up to 120 MB/sec. But, fast write speeds are important in applications such as video editing and encoding, image processing, compressing and extracting files, installing applications and copying files to the drive. These newly revised SSDs categorically outpace the fastest hard drives in the world.
The DX-series had a max write speed of 70MB/s but the 15GB and 30GB versions can now do up to 80MB/s and the 60GB and 120GB models received a boost to 100MB/s. The KX and MX models also received a performance bump, the lower capacity models (15GB and 30GB) can now do 60MB/s and the high capacity models (60GB and 120GB) can now do 80MB/s which is double as much as the previous generation.
