Micron announce their fastest SSD

Micron have just announced their latest solid state drive (SSD) – which is being touted as the industries fastest for notebook and desktop PCs – around 50% faster than most available today.

Micron’s RealSSD C300 drive is the first on the market to utilise the Sata 3.0 specification which offers 6Gbit/sex throughput and Open NAND Flash Interface 2.1 specification giving speeds of up to 355 MB/Sec and write speeds of up to 215MB/sec.

“This drive is the fastest on 6Gbit/sec. SATA and it’s the fastest on 3Gbit/sec. SATA,” said Micron’s Dean Klein the vice president of memory system development. “So even on a system that doesn’t have a 6Gbit port, it’s an impressive drive.”

The C300 is also the first product from Micron to use the 32nm lithography process, even though Intel’s M25 was released a while ago on a similar process. Micron are using two different flash chip types – a 32Gbit multi level cell (MLC) that offers 30,000 write/erase cycles and a 16Gbit single level cell (SLC) which offers 300,000 write/erase cycles.

“[Intel’s SSD] used to be the industry bar, now ours is,” Klein said.
