A-DATA Delivers 512GB 2.5" XPG SSD For Notebooks
Best we can figure, A-DATA is going to be the first to actually have these drives available to consumers and OEMs, but since it doesn't mention a release window in its press clipping, we can't even say that with certainty. As with most SSDs, this one also comes encased in a durable, lightweight aluminum shell designed to withstand bumps and vibration more so than standard HDDs, and it also promises transfer rates up to 230MB/sec (read) and 160MB/sec (write). It also features a SATA II interface and is primed to be a drop-in replacement to that tiny SSD you purchased with your current notebook years ago.
It's a shame that A-DATA didn't grace us with a price, but as with anything that's the "new best," you can rest assured that you'll be paying a hefty premium to have half a terabyte within a single 2.5" SSD.
