Samsung LogoWhen Samsung announced a flash memory chip that would allow for 32GB, we thought they meant flash memory cards.  Looks like Samsung used the chip to create a 32GB Flash-based hard drive disk.  The Solid State Disk (SDD) allows for hard drive access speeds up to 3 times faster than hard drives and writes 1.5 times as fast.

The SSD is a in a 2.5″ inch drive and runs on a 66 Mhz Ultra DMA parallel ATA bus.  The unit also uses just 5% of the energy of a hard drive.  Can you say perfect notebook drive?

The product was launched in Taiwan.
