Micron RealSSD C300 Solid State Drive Gets Official Real SSD C300 to Be the โ€�Fastest Driveโ€ for Notebooks and Desktops

A new solid-state drive has been announced today, the Micron RealSSD
C300. The new model promises to be the fastest drive for notebooks and
desktops. In f
act the company says the C300 is going to be the first to deliver native
SATA 6GB/s speeds which is definitely worth remembering next time you re
buying a SSD drive.The RealSSD C300 launched today will be able to offer
us read speeds of up to 355MB/s and write speeds of 215MB/s. You do the
math and see if that s something you d want to have around the house!
Unfortunately the drive will only be available in the first quarter of
2010. It will come in two versions, 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch and it will
offer you 128GB or 256GB storage space. No prices have been announced so
far but we all know that solid-state drives aren t exactly the cheapest
drives available.
Micron Technology, the company behind the RealSSD C300 promises that
once employed in our future notebooks and desktops, the new drive will
deliver faster speeds including faster operating system boot time and
hibernate times. Naturally you can also expect features like faster
application load, data transfers and file copying.
Dean Klein, vice president of memory system development at Micron had
this to say about the C300:
The C300 SSD not only delivers on all the inherent advantages of SSDs "
improved reliability and lower power use " but also leverages a finely
tuned architecture and high-speed ONFI 2.1 NAND to provide a whole new
level of performance.
The most remarkable feature of the drive is the native support for SATA
6 GB/s which is twice as fast as the previous SATA 3GB/s interface.
Micron has employed the 34nm MLC NAND flash memory technology which
supports the high-speed ONFI 2.1 standard. What that means to you and me
is that RealSSD C300 solid-state drives should bring even more speed to
our current working environment. What SSD have you been using so far?
