We don't tend to think of solid state drives as being overly susceptible to the dangers of heat, but then again, we're not running a toasty server farm or bombarding our SSDs with constant simulation applications. For those who do have a server farm to run, or are otherwise worried about longevity, Super Talent just introduced its SuperNova SSD Series with thermal conductive silicon padding. The padding prevents overheating and requires less cooling, Super Talent claims. Other safety net features include S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, built-in encryption, and proprietary RAISE technology that Super Talent says "virtually eliminates unrecoverable read errors." From a performance standpoint, the SuperNova... Read more...
Super Talent this week unveiled a new extreme solid state drive (SSD) solution that skips SATA III in favor of PCI Express. It's the new RAIDDrive upStream, a new type of SSD designed to take advantage of the greater bandwidth PCIe affords with up to 1GB/s of read performance and up to 900MB/s of write performance, compared to 550MB/s for SATA III solutions.

"It’s perfect for Animation, Simulation, CAD and Sorting & Searching large databases. When time is money, upStream quickly pays for itself and in the hands of creative professionals, upStream facilitates the... Read more...
Is there ever a time when a new SSD isn't exciting? Doubtful. As the world of solid state flash continues to whirl, Super Talent is introducing yet another option into the mix, the ultra-portable Storage POD Mini. It's a portable USB 3.0 SSD wrapped in a blue anodized, all-aluminum enclosure enables this drive to be both lightweight and rugged yet measure a mere 110 x 68 x 10 mm. Its top speed reaches over 260MB/s, but where this design really shines is in the real world performance. Its on-board processor is able to dramatically accelerate real world performance by compressing your data, in real-time, as it writes and decompressing data as it reads. Your data now uses less space and transfers... Read more...
Super Talent and SSDs have gone together like peas in a pod for years on end, but there's one section of the market that the company has been avoiding until now: pro/enthusiast. At least, that's what the company purports, and they've entered that very market with the introduction of their fastest 2.5" SSD to date, the SATA3 TeraNova. It boasts SATA3 support, a SandForce 2200 processor (with "optimized firmware"), and offers over 500MB/sec for both reads and writes. The TeraNova also includes new features that enhance reliability as well. In the event of a sudden power loss, the TeraNova reacts, protecting valuable data from corruption before it powers off. It's available today in 60/120/240/480GB... Read more...

Super Talent announced a new line of high speed, quad-channel Registered DDR3 RDIMM modules for servers running at 1600MHz. As server admins know, there is often a problem that arises if all memory slots are populated on a motherboard. If all of the slots are populated, the memory must throttle its performance in order to compensate for the limitations of the CPU. These new Super Talent modules overcome this issue and support full speed at full loading, so you can have 16 slots of memory running at 1600MHz. Super Talent's new modules are available in 2GB and 4GB capacities. Quad-Channel DDR3 RDIMMs at 1600MHz from Super Talent Enables full-throttle / full-loading of AMD® Interlagos™... Read more...
A new USB flash drive is available from Super Talent, and it offers four channels of flash for better speeds and greater capacity. It also features native USB 3.0 performance and is available in capacities up to 64GB. Oddly, there is little additional information available on the Super Talent website about the USB 3.0 Express ST4 even though the flash drive is already widely available for purchase.

System memory isn't the cause of your high energy bill at home -- check your fully loaded entertainment center instead -- but when it comes to servers and server farms, low power memory can have a real impact on a company's bottom line. It's the reason why memory makers develop so-called "green" memory, such as Super Talent's new Green-Line VLP These are low-profile, eco-friendly DDR3 memory modules featuring lower operating voltages. There are five new dual-channel kits in all, each one 4GB in capacity, rated at 1600MHz, and standing just 0.72 inches short, equal to a 39 percent reduction compared to regular RDIMMS, Super Talent says. No word on price or availability.... Read more...

Laptops like the MacBook Air and Samsung Series 9 are redefining what it means to be a thin and light laptop, sort of in the same way Hollywood redefined what it meant to be skinny (only not as gross -- seriously, does anyone find Nicole Richie attractive anymore?). Combined with the emerging tablet market, there is a strong need for good solid state drives. Super Talent has noticed and aims to deliver with the release of its new MasterDrive KX3, a 1.8-inch solid state drive aimed squarely at thin notebooks and tablets. "As laptops get thinner and lighter, the demand for smaller, thinner components follows suit," Super Talent states. "The fact that this product is also silent, more... Read more...

If you're thinking about picking up a solid state drive to make your system scream, you'd be silly to pull the trigger before SSDs built around next generation controllers start shipping. One of the more anticipated upgrades is from SandForce, whose SF-2000 series chipsets you'll soon find on a number of shipping SSDs, including Super Talent's upcoming TeraDrive CT3. Sporting SandForce's SF-2200 controller, the upgraded TeraDrive features a SATA 6Gb/s interface and much faster read and write speeds. Super Talent hasn't disclosed exact numbers yet, but from what we know of SandForce's 2nd generation controller, expect to see both hover around the 500MB/s mark, or about double what today's SSDs...

Could there possibly be anything better than a first-generation SSD? Probably a second-generation SSD. As interface changes take place and companies are able to fine tune their products, there's only benefits to be had for consumers eager to upgrade. Super Talent has been in the solid state drive business for a long, long time, and this week they're introducing the second-generation DuraDrive. The new DuraDrive ET2/ZT2 provide enhanced durability and performance compared to the original, with this design okay for use in scenarios considered "too harsh" for a standard drive. The DuraDrive series utilized Solid State Disk technology, meaning it performs faster, use less power, offers greater reliability,... Read more...
At this time last year, USB 2.0 hard drives were all the rage. Just 12 months later, and now a whole bunch of new external HDDs have USB 3.0 support. And it's about time! Throughout the year, we have wondered why laptop and desktop makers weren't supporting USB 3.0 with any real frequency. Even today, loads of new notebooks are shipping with one (or none) USB 3.0 ports. We realize that not every USB peripheral will need to take advantage of the extra speed (mice and keyboards come to mind), but since they're backwards compatible, we see no real reason not to load up on them. But hopefully, as more companies start to ship cheaper USB 3.0 devices, computer makers will take the hint: we need USB... Read more...
USB 3.0 thumb drives aren't anything revolutionary at this point, but they're still new enough to be novel. And Super Talent has been active in the industry from the very beginning. The company recently released a $15 Express DUO flash drive, which is probably the cheapest USB 3.0 USB key out there. But their newest product does something more than just store files. Super Talent has teamed up with Creedo for a USB 3.0 Express RAM CACHE, and it's now available in a 16GB version. Basically, this stick allows Windows users to store their favorite applications right on the USB key, but the settings and preferences are pulled over as well. This way, you can simply plug the drive into any PC you may... Read more...
Is "fast" ever "fast enough?" No, probably not. Super Talent has been pushing speed boundaries for years now, offering up one of the first USB 3.0 thumb drives earlier in the year. Since then, a number of other rivals have come to market, but Super Talent is bringing the focus back on their USB 3.0 RAIDDrive with a new firmware update. No one really expects a company to bring a firmware update to a USB drive, but Super Talent has. Thanks to a new update, which takes advantage of 2nd generation USB 3.0 host controllers, the RAIDDrive can now transfer up to 55MB/sec faster, or up to 370MB/sec overall. That's definitely quick for a thumb drive, and it's proven in this video below. Not a bad (free!)... Read more...
