    Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new line of UltraDrive solid state drives (SSDs) that are twice as fast as the world’s speediest SATA hard drives and are offered in capacities up to 256GB.

    UltraDrive LE SSDs are designed expressly for enterprise servers and data centers where exceptional performance, reliability and endurance are paramount. The UltraDrive LE supports very high transaction speeds (IOPS), and supports sequential read/write speeds of 230/170 MB per second. While outperforming 10,000 RPM hard drives, the UltraDrive LE uses substantially less power and generates less heat. Based on SLC NAND Flash, the UltraDrive LE is offered in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

    “The UltraDrive LE represents a quantum leap forward in storage performance that is simply staggering. It excels in every metric that’s relevant to data centers: sequential and random read and write speeds, transaction rates and access and seek times. It also has a considerable advantage over 10,000 RPM hard drives in power consumption and MTBF. This product sets a new standard in enterprise storage” said Super Talent Chief Operating Officer, Mr. C.H. Lee.

    UltraDrive ME SSDs now represent the fastest available 2.5-inch internal storage solution for SATA-II notebooks. With sequential read/write speeds up to 200/160 MB per second, the UltraDrive ME outperforms the fastest desktop hard drives available, making it an outstanding upgrade for mobile professionals and gamers alike. As the company’s third generation MLC NAND based SSD, the UltraDrive ME offers reliability not found in competing SSDs.

    Yep, there's going to be a lot of new builds amongst TPU users in 2009. We'll all be moving to ix and SSD :)

    I know i would like to move my boot drive to a SSD but the speed just isn't what i want yet. I won't give up my HDD for along time yet.atleast till SSD are around the same price and can load windows in 3sec then i will give up all of my normal HDD for SSD :laugh:
    Crunching for Team TPU

    That (3 seconds) will never happen due to PnP. They need to change Windows so that by default it DOES NOT look for new hardware. A lot of the "wait" time is Windows looking around for hardware changes. It has to execute a lot "identify yourself" and "time out, no response" type stuff. That's also one of the reasons why hibernate is FAST (relative). On SSD you arent that far off 5seconds on coming out of a hibernate.

    UltraDrive LE x 24 in a Supermicro SC216A-R900UB = 'gasm.

    I'm planning a couple new servers at the beginning of the year, too bad I don't have the budget for something like that (or a legitimate need).

    they say 10 years in the data sheet on the website, as well as "1,000,000+ hours"

    They claim the 16GB will last 90 years, @ 50GB a day.
