When 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.
