Micron has unveiled two new RealSSD solid state disks - the RealSSD P200 for enterprise servers and the RealSSD C200 for notebooks.
The RealSSD C200 is a pretty interesting drive, this MLC SSD will be available in densities from 32GB to 256GB and will offer read speeds of up to 250MB/s and write speeds of up to 100MB/s.
Designed using Micron’s multi-level cell (MLC) NAND process technology, the RealSSD C200 drives will be available in 2.5-inch and 1.8-inch form factors. The 2.5-inch C200 will be offered in densities of up to 256GBs. And with its small form-factor, the 1.8-inch C200 will range in density from 32GBs to 128GBs offering uncompromised power and performance levels. Using a 3 Gb/s SATA interface, the C200 products provide a read speed of up to 250 MB/s and a write speed of up to 100 MB/s. The increased read and write speeds of the C200 will enable consumers to have an overall improved computing experience when compared to a notebook designed with an HDD, offering improved boot and application load times and lower power consumption for smaller form factor notebook designs.
“With our C200 products, we are providing a balanced price to performance solution specifically designed for notebook applications by utilizing MLC NAND technology and highly optimized NAND management algorithms,” continued Klein.
Both drives will be available in Q4 2008, prices are unknown.
