Samsung announced its latest development of the world’s fastst 2.5-inch 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD). The multi-level cell-based SSD uses SATA II interface and offers a 200MBps of read speed and 160MBps of write speed. The new SSD is only 9.5mm thick.
“With development of the 256GB SSD, the notebook PC is on the brink of a second stage of evolution. This change is comparable to the evolution from the Sony Walkman to NAND memory-based MP3 players, representing an initial step in the shift to thinner, smaller SSD-based notebooks with significantly improved performance and more than ample storage,” said Jim Elliott, vice president, memory marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.
