Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced their next generation SSD, the TeraDrive PT3.
Featuring the SandForce 2200 processor, SATA 6 Gb/s interface, and Double Data Rate, ONFiTM flash, the new TeraDrive PT3 offers a significant leap in performance over drives offered just a few months ago. The union of these 3 new technologies has forever changed the storage landscape. Right out of the gate, this new generation SSD stretches well within the new found bandwidth promised by the SATA 3.0 bus and breaks the 500MB/s barrier in both Read and Write scores. The comparisons between SSDs and HDDs just became a little harder to justify.

The only SSD processor to compress data before writing, SandForce's unique set of technologies enables the new TeraDrive PT3 to offer enhanced performance, flash durability and data integrity. Add to that the introduction of ONFi, double data rate flash, and the SATA 6 Gb/s interface, and we have one of the largest incremental leaps in performance that the storage market has ever seen.



"To reach this level of performance, just a few months ago, required two SSDs in a RAID array. Now a new generation NAND flash and the SATA 3.0 interface have clearly moved the performance bottleneck elsewhere", Peter Carcione, SuperTalent Director of Product Marketing.

Available in capacities 60, 120, 240 and 480GB, the TeraDrive PT3 begins shipping today.

Why won't these companies learn that these press releases are completely pointless without prices.

And when will they realize that they need to start making either 160GB or 180GB SATA 3 capacities already!!
If you look on the egg, there is a HUGE gap in price that starts from $285 all the way to $420 :banghead:

You do realize that you know about it now right? If you know know a product exists, will be made or put on the market you're more likely to purchase it even without knowing the price. That being said, this PR hasn't been useless.

Teradrive....up to 480gb, anyone else disappointed that it's not a terabyte drive and the naming is possibly misleading? still nice to see capacities growing and prices decreasing with SSD's

Still useless. Knowing it's out there doesn't tell me if it's worth buying. Not letting the consumer know whether or not it's worth buying makes this press release a pointless waste of space and reading time.

If they aren't going to give prices, give a performance/features chart and a picture so we can be on our way without having to read stupid PR derived garbage.

the price is tera-fying
It's also a favorite of Jim Raynor and the rest of the TERAns in starcraft. How else would they be able to macro/micro so well without the awesome power of these drives! haha

It's all about word of mouth advertising. Also, I'm sure you've heard the saying "Price? If you have to ask it's more than you can afford."

Also, pricing something before it's released is somewhat silly, prices should be set based upon sales/pricing of competing hardware. That being said pricing should be set around the time of release in my opinion.

That's bullshit. People that can afford Ferraris and Lambos still want to know the price.

Also, pricing something before it's released is somewhat silly, prices should be set based upon sales/pricing of competing hardware. That being said pricing should be set around the time of release in my opinion.
Reread the press release. This IS the time of release, as evidenced by the very last line in the OP.

Again, stupid and useless press release. Total waste of time.

While I agree on the saying I said being stupid it's a saying and I've never really liked it myself. I remember as a kid wanting to know how much very expensive car parts were but being told if I had to ask I couldn't afford it so I was never told a price =/

It does say begin shipping but this doesn't necessarily mean it would be available to you. That might be shipping to retailers to be sold in the future AFTER setting a price. Game producers ship game to retail stores and they hold on to them for a bit sometimes. However, since they're planning on selling these soon it would have made more sense to price them as you say. It's still far from a useless press release, it has already kept you and I both occupied for a bit of time, we used the press release to gain knowledge of these products therefore it couldn't possibly be useless, your use of the term is far from proper. Stupid? Maybe. Useless, not at all.

Oh, so you are taking the semantics approach? I see.

Obvious troll is obvious.
