TPU writes Plextor revealed an upcoming NGFF form-factor solid state disk at CeBIT. Designed for ultrabooks, this storage device is based on the Marvell 88SS9189 SSD processor with triple-level cell (TLC) NAND flash memory. It measures just 42mm x 22mm (L x W) but packs quite impressive performance.
According to Plextor, the device offers read speeds of up to 700MB/s, write speeds of up to 550MB/s and random 4k write performance of 100,000 IOPS.
It will be available in 128GB and 256GB capacities by the time that ultrabooks based on Intel's Haswell hit the market. These disks use a PCI Express 2.0 x2 interface and come with 256MB (128GB model) and 512MB (256GB model) of DDR3 cache memory.
