Samsung 256GB SSD is World's Fastest
While I have no idea what this clocks out to, how much time it will exactly save me, it still seems to be the shiznit. Everytime I see story like this it reminds me that we are one step closer to Rodenberry's Reality.
So whether you edit photos, music or just save and load scads of other stuff you now officially have less time to run to the bathroom, make a sandwich or stretch than you did last five minutes ago.
"Samsung Electronics announced today the world's fastest, 2.5", 256GB multi-level cell (MLC) based solid state drive (SSD) using a SATA II interface. Performance data of the new Samsung 256GB SSD features a sequential read speed of 200 megabytes per second (MB/s) and sequential write speed of 160MB/s. The Samsung MLC-based 2.5-inch 256GB SSD is about 2.4 times faster than a typical HDD. Furthermore, the new 256 GB SSD is only 9.5 millimeters (mm) thick, and measures 100.3x69.85 mm.
Samsung is expected to begin mass producing the 2.5-inch, 256GB SSD by year end, with customer samples available in September. A 256GB capacity is getting large enough to replace hard-drives for good — now just the prices just need to come down further for large capacity SSDs."
