Micron Demos Super-Fast Solid-State Drives Running At 1GB Per Second

Micron touted its super-fast RealSSD » 11/26/08 3:40pm 11/26/08 3:40pm drives with 250MBps speed a few months back, but now its demonstrated a tech that'll blow them out of the water: 1GBps transfer rates. It's a bit cheaty since it uses two SSDs for a total of 16 data channels to access the flash memory, but that does give it a 200,000 input/output…

Micron Starts Production of Super-Fast RealSSD Solid-State Drives

The inexorable march of solid-state drive technology continues forward with news from Micron Technology (one of the worlds leading semiconductor suppliers) that they're going to produce SSD's with a read speed of 250MBps. That's more than twice the speed of the drives Samsung » 8/05/08 4:23am 8/05/08 4:23am announced last month (90MBps.)Micron's…

Ultrafast NAND Memory Reads 200MB per Second

Micron and Intel have co-developed a new 8-gigabit SLC NAND chip, which has data-read speeds of 200 MB/second and write speeds of 100 MB/second: five times faster than previous SLC NANDs. The 50nm-process node devices are available as samples to OEMs now, with bulk manufacturing planned for late this year. This means… » 2/01/08 3:03am 2/01/08 3:03am

Micron unveils RealSSD Solid State Drives in 32GB, 64GB Flavors

Micron announced today that they will be releasing the RealSSD line of solid state drives, including a 64GB drive. While the entire line ranges from 1GB to 64GB, the 32 and 64 GB models are geared toward notebook and desktop use. The drives feature a SATA II interface and draw a mere 2 watts of power.
