Team Group Shows Sandforce Based SSDs, New USB Drives, 2400 MHz DDR3 and SDXC

Just like everyone else, they are showing off Sandforce SSDs - called Team Xtreem-S1 - with advertised speeds of 270 MB/s read and 260 MB/s write performance. It will be available in 60, 120, 250 GB capacities. On the portable storage front, they have X091 with capacities of up to 128GB in a stylish metal casing (which is not pink, just reflects that color in our picture). Then there is the X092, which has an USB connector on one side and an eSATA on the other side. The latter requires the use of a 5V power connection. We also got a glimpse at their 2400 MHz CL9 at 1.6 V dual channel kit, as well as their SDXC 32 GB and 64 GB Flash memory cards.

Good performer that SSD. I bet you need to sell your car to have one...

Regarding the SDXC sticks, any word on what class they are? I'm guessing 10 by the specs on the picture....

^^ I haven't bought an SSD yet for personal use. The technology is getting faster and cheaper at such a rate that I'd feel a like a fool for buying something of which I'd find a newer version that's twice as fast for half the price a year later (granted computer gear is never a good long-term "investment," but seriously). Buying a technology while it's in the middle of a "progress spurt" just isn't wise for most people IMO.

Yeah but with those speeds, its just too juicy and hard to resist. I'd definitely give this one a go but the price will be nice and higher than what is currently available. Id love to see how Sandforce works compared to Idilinx and Samsung. Also curious about what the IOPS are.
