Enthusiasts and power users will want to pay attention to this: PhotoFast announced its fastest solid state disk to date. Reportedly, the new G-Monster-Promise SSD can reach speeds up to 1000MB/s. The drive connects to an x8 PCI-Express slot and comes in capacities of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
The drive supports MLC flash and features a ECC DDRII and 256MB of SDRAM memory for local cache. PhotoFast bills the new SSD as ideal for high-end digital and video editing as well as for a high-capacity data server. With super-fast read and write speeds of 1000MB/s and 100 MB/s respectively, the G-Monster-Promise SSD is three to five times faster than standard SATA solutions thanks to the PCI-e connection.
PhotoFast says the device has a MTBF of around 2,500,000 hours and data retention of five years. The first batch of G-Monster-Promise SSDs is expected in Japan by mid-May. The 128GB model is expected to sell for the equivalent of $1,600, the 512GB model for $2,000 and the 1TB model for $4,500.
