Micron Launches First SATA 6 Gb/s Solid-State Drive - RealSSD C300
Micron Technology, Inc. has raised the performance bar for SSDs. The company today announced its RealSSD C300 SSD, the industry’s fastest for notebook and desktop PCs. Micron’s new RealSSD C300 drive enables users to enjoy a more powerful and responsive computing experience—including faster operating system (OS) boot and hibernate times, and speedier application load, data transfer and file copying. Micron says that C300 drive outperforms every client SSD currently available on the market, which is amazing if it is true. They also sent us a link of a YouTube clip that shows their RealSSD C300 go head-to-head with a 7200RPM hard drive in everyday tasks that is worth a watch.
The RealSSD C300 drive leverages Micron’s established 34nm MLC NAND flash memory, allowing the company to provide a cost-competitive, high-capacity SSD solution. Bringing another first to SSDs, Micron’s 34nm MLC NAND supports the high-speed ONFI 2.1 standard, ensuring the NAND performance keeps pace with the faster SATA 6Gb/s interface. The drives will be available in 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch form factors, with both drives supporting 128GB and 256GB capacities. Micron is currently sampling the C300 SSD in limited quantities and expects to enter production in the first quarter of calendar 2010.
