DailyTech reports Apple's next MacBook Air may offer a 400MB/s solid state disk. Rumor has it that the ultraportable laptop will use 19nm flash memory chips soldered directly onto the motherboard.
According to Macotakara.jp, a Japanese Apple fan site, the latest version of the ultraportable will use cutting edge flash memory technology. The site cites sources at unnamed Asian chipmakers as claiming that the latest Airs will contain 19nm flash memory chips soldered directly onto the motherboard for blazing speeds of up to 400 megabits per second.
Current generation MacBook Airs only have RAM chips soldered on. The SSD for the laptops are connected using mSATA connectors.
