SanDisk Demos Tiny SATA III SSDs for Tablets, Notebooks
The new SSD U100 and iSSD i100 drives can transfer data to and from a PC at roughly twice the speed of the standard SanDisk P4 drives they are intended to replace.SanDisk used the Computex 2011 conference in Taipei to introduce a couple of tiny new storage devices. The new drives, dubbed SSD U100 and iSSD i100, feature SATA III interfaces and can transfer data to and from the PC at roughly twice the speed of the standard Sandisk P4 drives they are intended to replace, the company said May 31 at the device-centered conference.
The solid-state disk maker demonstrated each of the new chips, which are designed specifically for use in ultra-thin notebooks such as the Mac Air, tablets and other similar devices. SanDisk claimed that the iSSD i100, which can go into laptops and tablets, is currently the world's smallest and fastest 128GB SATA III BGA-based SSD.
