Samsung gears to to bring forth the very first SSD utilizing high-performance DDR NAND
Samsung Electronics has just introduced the first solid state drive (SSD) utilizing high-performance toggle-mode DDR NAND. The new 512 gigabyte (GB) SSD provides electronic data processing application designers with advanced performance and reliability for notebooks with premium value. The new 512GB SSD makes use of a 30 nanometer-class 32 gigabit chip that the company began producing back in November of last year. The toggle-mode DDR structure together with the SATA 3.0Gbps interface generates a maximum sequential read speed of 250 Megabyte per second (MBps) and a 220MBps sequential write speed, both of which provide three-fold the performance of a typical hard disk drive. Impressive! We’re talking about storing about 8GB worth of data i.e. 2 standard DVD movies in a matter of just one minute.
The Samsung 512GB SSD makes use of reinforced 256bit AES (advanced encryption standard) encryption to ensure higher security, protecting personal data against online hackers or undesired access when its host PC is misplaced and lost. Also, an intelligent operation management function optimizes the SSD’s background working environment. Coupled with the popular Windows 7 TRIM feature the operation management function secures the reliability of the drive in write mode. Samsung plans to begin volume production of the 512GB SSD next month.
