Super Talent Now Shipping UltraDrive Family of SSDs

Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced that it is now shipping both the UltraDrive ME and UltraDrive LE families of Solid State Drives (SSDs).

Super Talent's 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB UltraDrive LE and 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB UltraDrive ME are immediately available in production volumes. The UltraDrive LE is rated for a maximum sequential read speed of 230MB/sec and a maximum sequential write speed of 170MB/sec. The UltraDrive ME is rated for a maximum sequential read speed of 200MB/sec and a maximum sequential write speed of 160MB/sec. The drives also showed outstanding IOPS performance in internal testing including Sequential Read IOPS of over 13,000, Sequential Write IOPS of nearly 16,000, Random Read IOPS of nearly 7500 and Random Write IOPS of nearly 6000. Performance varied between models; for a full summary of Super Talent's performance benchmarking see the whitepaper on the Super Talent website.

All these products are designed to be compatible with all known operating systems including Windows, Linux, and DOS. Super Talent backs the UltraDrive LE with a 3-year warranty and the UltraDrive ME with a 2-year warranty.

According to Jeremy Werner, senior product marketing manager at Super Talent, "The UltraDrive is a product that surpassed our wildest expectations, easily leaving most of today's available SSDs in the dust. It is one of the first next-generation SSDs likely to entice users to upgrade their laptops to take advantage of noticeable performance gains in boot time, application loading, and accessing data. " The 128GB UltraDrive ME retails for under $400.

This year has really seen a boost in SSD (just like everyone predicted). Favorite next Christmas present? $128 for 32GB is still a bit steep, but they are getting faster and cheaper all the time.

We have a larger choice but the price is still a little bit high ($/GB). But it's going in the right direction and I will probably make the move by the end of the year.

I must say the JMicron did not help the cause but will be in the past by the end of the year I guess.
