Competition in the solid state storage space is getting intense, and
has proven to be a serious contender. In order to keep up with
, OCZ Technology, SanDisk and the handful of others, the company
is today expanding their Nova Series SSD family with two new sizes, one
on the low end and one on the high end.
There's a new 32GB and 256GB Nova SSD in the crowd, both of which
utilize the Indilinx Barefoot controller. The 256GB Nova Series SSD is
able to achieve speeds of up to 250MB/second read and 195MB/second
write, while the 32GB Nova Series SSD delivers speeds up to 195MB/s
read and 75MB/s write; each drive supports TRIM (used in Windows 7),
and both are backed with a 2-year warranty. As has become the norm with
SSDs, no prices are being immediately published.
