Samsung Shows Off 256 gig SSD

Samsung 256gig SSD

Say WOW!

This is (says Samsung) the world’s fastest and largest capacity 2.5-inch, MLC-based SSD with SATA II Interface.

Samsung has itself one pretty cool 256 gig solid-state drive.

With sequential read speed of 200 megabytes per second (MB/s) and sequential write speed of 160MB/s the SSD is about 2.4 times faster than a typical HDD.

The drive samples will be available by this September but making for the masses happens at the end of the year. There will be also a 1.8-inch version by then.
