Super Talent Ultra Drive ME
Next up we have the Super Talent UltraDrive ME, model number FTM64GX25H. Super Talent's UltraDrive ME series of SSDs are the company's fifth generation of solid state products for desktop and mobile applications.
As you can see the drive uses the same 2.5" form factor as the vast majority of other consumer oriented solid state drives. It features SATA II connectivity and hard metal shell. With the drive disassembled, you can see that it too is based on Samsung NAND flash technology. An Elpida 64MB memory chip acts as cache for the drive and it is controlled by a Super Talent branded IndiLinx controller, that sits adjacent to the cache memory.
Super Talent's specifications suggest a maximum sequential read speed of 230MB/s for the 64GB model we tested, with write speeds of up to 180MB/s. The other products in the UltraDrive ME series feature varying capacities of up to 256GB, with slightly different read / write speeds as outlined in the chart above.
