    Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, announced it has self certified its award winning UltraDrive SSDs for compatibility with the newest Apple MacBook (13”), MacBook Pro (15”/17”), and Mac Pro (Quad/8-Core) based on Intel’s Core i7 CPUs.

    During compatibility testing Super Talent was able to improve boot time by up to 58% and achieve performance gains of over 5.3x vs. the stock Apple Hard Disk Drive (HDD). The UltraDrive ME delivered 32x the bandwidth of the HDD on 256K Random Writes as measured by the xBench standard benchmark. The UltraDrive also outperformed the Apple SSD by 2.5x.

    On the Mac Pro Super Talent was able to achieve nearly 420 MB/sec write speeds with 3 SSDs in RAID0. This configuration delivered enough bandwidth to write three uncompressed HD video streams in parallel.

    “The market reception to our UltraDrive SSDs has been tremendous. We are proud to announce that the family now supports Apple MacBook, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro lines. Apple users who upgrade with our products are going to be delighted with the simplicity of upgrading and the outstanding performance they will attain”, said Jeremy Werner, Sr. Product Marketing Manager for Super Talent.

    Complete benchmarking data is available on Super Talent’s website in their new whitepaper UltraDrive LE/ME Performance in Apple Mac.

    hey cmon guys. There's a LOT that goes into getting Apple certified. It's a complete revamp of the-- ok I'm sorry, I can't even be sarcastic about this, it's so ridiculous it makes fun of it's self.

    Lets not even get into the fact that os x can obviously run on non "apple certified" machines.

    Well they do put together quality stuff, but the idea that something needs to be different for it to be "compatible" with Apple computers is just plain stupid. Whatever it is that's needed in these components to make them compatible, it's entirely artificial, and something Apple does just to present an illusion that they are somehow selling something different.
