SanDisk Ups The Ante With Extreme II SSD, U110 and i110 Drives

Computex is turning out to be quite the show. With Haswell helping OEMs to spruce up their laptop lines, SanDisk is showing up in order to boast of new innovations in the storage world. The company has released the SanDisk Extreme II SSD as well as the U110 SSD and iSSD i110 integrated storage device. All of the new SSDs introduced by SanDisk today are built with the company’s 19 nanometer (nm) manufacturing process technology and rely on SanDisk’s intelligent flash memory architecture.

“Today, we again raised the bar by bringing our latest technology innovations to a new generation of SSDs that address the most demanding computing needs,” said Kevin Conley, senior vice president and general manager of Client Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “The SanDisk Extreme II SSD, our fastest and most responsive SATA III SSD to date, is a great option for gamers, PC enthusiasts or any consumers who want to get the most from their computing experience. And, we’ve enhanced two of our most popular OEM SSDs to enable PC makers to push the boundaries of computing even further. These new SSD products reaffirm the standard set by SanDisk for performance, reliability and flexibility.”
