Super Talent Introduces Pico Mini USB DrivesNew Line is a Colorful, Trendy Addition to Successful Pico USB Family San Jose, California - July 7, 2009 - Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today introduced their new line of colorful and trendy Pico Mini USB drives, available this week in capacities from 2GB to 16GB. Like their siblings, the Pico drives, Pico Mini drives are built using COB technology which enables squeezing impressive Flash capacities into extremely small packages. At 32 x 15 x 3 mm (1.3 x 0.6 x 0.1 inches), Pico Mini drives are surprisingly tiny. Even more impressive, they tip the scales at merely 1.5 grams.Pico... Read more...
While there's no denying that the solid state drive arena is still growing (in leaps and bounds, we'd argue), Super Talent has yet to become a huge brand name that measures up to the likes of WD and Seagate in terms of name recognition. That said, the company is sure doing its best to change that with a torrent of new drives. Just a few months after showcasing new MasterDrive SSDs, Super Talent has announced a new line of IDE flash disk modules (FDMs), primarily developed for embedded computing applications, that deliver unmatched reliability and fast transfer speeds. Put simply, these new IDE FDMs bring about a new high performance SSD solution to the embedded market. According to the firm,... Read more...
Super Talent Unveils MasterDrive SX SSDs 128MB DRAM Cache Delivers Exceptional Write Speeds San Jose, California - June 18, 2009 - Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today launched a new line of MasterDrive SX SSDs that incorporate 128MB of DRAM cache and reach new performance levels in high performance laptops. The MasterDrive SX is based on an advanced new 8-channel controller and MLC NAND Flash.

The MasterDrive SX is capable of sequential read speeds up to 220 MB/sec and sequential write speeds up to 200 MB/sec.... Read more...
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 sequential write speeds up to 40MB/s, and uses MLC flash.  It also comes with a 2 year factory...

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 boot time by nearly 60% and performance gains of over 5.3x versus the stock hard disk drive. We're... 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 725MB/sec and random write speed of 515MB/sec. Of course, these systems certainly aren't for "normal"... Read more...
The SSD market is incredibly hot at the moment. Not only is there a consistent influx of new products that seemingly leapfrog the previous generation in nearly every way, but already established products have been treated to firmware updates that enhance their performance and capabilities as well.Over the course of the last few months, we rounded up a number of solid state drives and featured products from Intel, OCZ, and others independently. Ultimately, we found that Intel's X25-M series of drives was the current kingpin in terms of overall performance, but since our initial look, a slew of new drives have hit the market and Intel has updated the X25-M's firmware to eliminate a potential performance...

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 improved performance when used with Microsoft Windows 7." Furthermore, it has made the update freely... Read more...

ASUS' Eee PC S101 may be incredibly gorgeous, but what's the use in having good looks if you've no room to store anything? The US version of the aforesaid netbook comes with just 16GB of internal space, and evidently, Super Talent understands just how serious a travesty that really is. Thus, said SSD maker is pumping out a new line of S101 replacement drives, giving owners the opportunity to double or quadruple the native storage capacity. The line, which was "specially designed as an upgrade for the ASUS Eee PC S101," contains a trifecta of models: the 16GB FPM16RSE, 32GB FPM32RSE and 64GB FPM64RSE.
