Rumor: Samsung Makes An SSD Speed Demon
SSD isn't without its pitfalls, namely high price and, until now, typically lower transfer rates than traditional mechanical drives. It looks like we might be entering a brave new world:
“These new drives come in 1.8 and 2.5-inch formats, and feature 960 Mbps sequential read and 800 Mbps sequential write speed respectively, corresponding to speeds of 120MB/s and 100MB/s.”
There isn't any word on capacity at this time, but we're still excited. With transfer rates like this, we're wondering when 3.5-inch versions of these drives are going to be available.
