Active Media introduced a new 64GB PATA Mini PCIe SSD upgrade kit for the Dell Mini 9 netbook. This SSD promises double the read speed (71.49MB/s vs 35.74MB/s) and 9x the write speed (45.96MB/s vs 5.06MB/s) of the default SSD of the Mini 9.
Active Media Products, a leader in DOMs and small form factor SSDs, today announced a new 64GB Mini PCI-E SSD designed specifically for Dell Inspiron® Mini 9 upgrades that delivers substantially more storage space and dramatically faster performance than the Mini 9's default drive, as shown in the benchmark results below.
The SaberTooth AA SSD scored about 100% faster than the default SSD in Read speeds, and up to 9x faster in write speeds. The SaberTooth AA is one of the first available 64GB upgrades for the Mini 9, making it the highest density storage solution in this form factor. "This SSD answers the demand from many netbook users for bigger and faster storage options. We were able to reach the 64GB density by using the newest high capacity flash chips," stated Active Media Products VP of Sales, Jerry Thomson.
The SaberTooth AA has a Mini PCI-E connector, but uses IDE/PATA signaling, so it is custom made for the Dell Mini 9. The MLC flash based drive includes ECC and wear leveling features. The 64GB SaberTooth AA, part number N64G-HMPCIE2, is available now on Amazon or directly through ActiveMP.com for about $199.
