New SSDs, anyone? Sure, why not? Super Talent has just unveiled their newest solid state drive, the TeraNova SSD. It's also the company's fastest SSD to data, a SATA3 product designed for super-duper small computers. There's also a SandForce 2200 processor with "optimized firmware," and the company claims that you'll see transfer rates of over 500MB/sec on both the read and write side. It'll be available in 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB sizes, with shipments starting today. Sadly, pricing remains a mystery.

Just in case you found yourself lamenting the lack of SandForce-driven solid state drives (SSDs), what with there only being about a million different options and all, SuperTalent this week added another one to the pile. It's the TeraDrive CT3, a SATA 6Gb/s drive designed to fill the gap between SuperTalent's PT3 and CT2 products and take its place as the price/performance leader among the pack. "As with the PT3, the CT3 features the new SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor and the SATA III interface. You can think of the new TeraDrive CT3 as the PT3 with asynchronous Flash or as the CT2 with a SATA... Read more...
Tablet PCs are clearly the next big thing when it comes to mobility, and while quite a few on the market already use Flash storage, having a few tablet-sized SSDs would certainly be a boon to the industry. SuperTalent has been producing SSDs for some time now, and just this week they announced a new mSATA interface SSD that conforms to new JEDEC MO-300V standard. The recent proliferation of netbook and tablet designs has created the need for a standard to enable easy and efficient integration possibilities. The mSATA JEDED standard MO-300B is one such standard. It is a SATAII interface SSD using... Read more...
SuperBiiz, the online vendor of computer parts and components previously known as eWiz, announced today that they will being carrying SuperTalent's USB 3.0 Express line.

SuperTalent has generally stuck to its own label when it came time to pump out a new slate of solid state drivers, but this time the company is tapping Toshiba for a little help.

The drives will share credit with Toshiba but will be sold through Super Talent’s North American retail and distribution channel.Keen on keeping your data extra safe, these devices support password protection with an encrypted password, while a second level of security...

Talk about being on a roll -- Super Talent has been quite the busy bunch of late. After certifying its UltraDrive SSD line for use on Macs and introducing a promising 6TB SSD RAID server system, the company is back with yet another new revelation: the MasterDrive EX2 and MasterDrive IX2. Starting this week, the company will be shipping both of those lines of PATA/IDE 2.5" SSDs, with feature MLC and SLC Flash and are said to "nearly triple" the previous performance specifications. The MasterDrive EX2 is available with capacities from 16GB to 128GB, features sequential read speeds up to 80 MB/s and... Read more...
After Super Talent unveiled a 6TB SSD RAID system this morning, we're a bit baffled to see it hitting us with another item so soon. We suppose the great never rest, and thus Super Talent has decided to proclaim that its UltraDrive SSDs are all perfectly suited for use with Apple's latest line of MacBooks, MacBook Pros and Mac Pros. The outfit's UltraDrive ME and LE have been "self-certified" (in other words, Steve Jobs didn't sign off on this) to function in the 13" MacBook, 15" and 17" MacBook Pro and the quad-core/8-core Mac Pro. During Super Talent's testing, these SSDs were found to improve... Read more...
Super Talent is at it again on the SSD front, this time trotting out a new heavy-duty workstation with up to 6TB (yes, terabytes!) of speedy solid state storage. The newly announced PCIe RAIDDrive Workstation taps into the company's RAIDSSD technology and is based on Intel's quad-core Core i7 CPUs and Super Talent's 1333MHz DDR3 DIMMs. The PCIe RAIDDrive Workstations scale up 6TB in a Workstation Tower form factor, and the company claims that it can hit sustained sequential read rates of over 1.5GB/sec and sequential write rates of nearly 1.35GB/sec. Further testing showed a random read speed of... Read more...
We're not quite sure what to read into this, but Super Talent has quietly issued a firmware update that sounds an awful lot like the update Intel issued around this time last month. Surely you remember that, right? Essentially, Intel's otherwise fantastic X-25M and X-18M solid state drives were shown to degrade with time under very specific circumstances, though a fix issued by the company supposedly took care of that possibility.Today, Super Talent -- a notable SSD manufacturer -- has announced that its line of UltraDrive SSDs is now shipping with a revised firmware (version 1370), which "enables...

Last we heard from Super Talent, it was busy offering up SSD upgrades for the stunning Asus S101. Now, the company is busy shipping out a load of solid state drives for the rest of us. Starting today, prospective buyers can get their hands on a tracking number for one of the many UltraDrive ME / UltraDrive LE drives. As of now (right now!), the company's 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB UltraDrive LE and 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB UltraDrive ME are immediately available in production volumes. In case you're wondering -- and we know you are -- the former is rated for a maximum sequential read speed of 230MB/sec... Read more...
Need super fast ram? How about buying SuperTalent? Though they're not as well known as brands such as Corsair or Mushkin, they have produced some extremely fast(and stable) memory. Getting this speed in a 2GB kit comes with a price though. Are you willing to pay?"AMD will present the AM2 socket this summer, which supports DDR2 PC6400 RAM. Intel based motherboards can already use such RAM and so we have most manufacturers entering a 'memory war', with every RAM manufacturer trying to design and release high speed DDR2 modules while offering good value as well. This 'memory war' seems to get interesting... Read more...
Hey all, here's your afternoon shot of tech related news. I've got a few machines to get working on, so I'll skip the chit chat for now and let you get straight to the good stuff... Chaintech SE6600G Review @ AMDZone "Aesthetically the SE6600G is not too different from other cards on the market, a blue PCB and a matching blue heatsink with a translucent fan adorn Nvidia's GPU. In addition to that Chaintech have put silver heatsinks over the memory modules on the PCB to give the memory a little extra cooling. What Chaintech have done seems to have worked as it is one of the best overclockers... Read more...
