Another - but faster - 128GiB solid-state offering
Solid state drives are coming thick and fast and though we've seen them in 128GiB flavours before from Toshiba, Ridata has announced a selection of new drives that up the performance levels.
Introduced at CES today, three new Ridata drives are available in 128GiB, 64GiB and 32GiB capacities, each claimed to read at 170MiB/sec and write at 105MiB/sec.
According to Harvey Liu, Advanced Media President, "SSD drives offer a host of benefits over traditional hard disk drives. Cool and silent running; fast data access times; and dependability and resistance to harsh environments make SSD drives a serious contender for virtually replacing hard disc drives".
"The read rate of our 2.5in SATA SSD drive provides users with a phenomenally fast speed. For instance, it reduces boot up and seek times to mere seconds, while installation of new software programs can be accomplished in seconds rather than minutes."
It's only a matter of time before SSDs become commonplace and, as long as makers continue to deploy them at an ever increasing rate, prices will only head in one direction - down.
