Less than two years after unveiling its first 32GB solid-state drive (SSD) and a year after releasing its first 64GB SSD, Samsung is back in action with a new model that features a storage capacity of 128GB.
Samsung's 128GB SSD has a 300MB/s Serial ATA interface, and the company claims that it's the fastest among its multi-level-cell-based brethren. Indeed, the drive can reportedly achieve read speeds of 100MB/s and write speeds of 70MB/s. Power consumption when idling is just 0.5W, too, and the SSD is rated for a mean time between failures of one million hours.
The Korean company plans to put its new baby into mass production some time during the first half of this year. 2.5" and 1.8" versions will be available together with an extra-thin 1.8" version that'll be just 5 mm thick. However, as with all SSDs, don't expect this model to be priced competitively with similar-capacity hard drives.
