SanDisk announced its new SSD G4 and SSD P4 solid state drives that are designed for drop-in replacement for notebook hard disk drives and use in slim netbooks and tablets respectively. Both of them are based on SanDisk’s 32nm MLC processor technology.
The SSD G4 is available in 64GB to 256GB capacities and features 220MB/s read and 160MB/s write speeds. It offers Long-term Data Endurance (LDE) of 160 terabytes written (TBW) for a 256GB drive, sufficient for over 10 years of PC usage. The G4 also uses ExtremeFFS a page-based algorithm that significantly increases random write speeds and efficiency.
SanDisk’s SSD P4, the successor to the pSSD modular drive, comes with capacities ranging from 8GB to 128GB and is available in various form factors that include a new ultra-small variant of the mSATA module, mSATA mini.
