This morning, Samsung announced it would begin shipping its new 1.8-inch 64GB SSD. That’s 64GB of
porn data that can be accessed very quickly. Some of the features that make this SSD pop include faster startup times, skip-proof data protection, since there’s no moving parts, and extended product life. It also uses less power, meaning there’s no need to scoop up that 600W power supply you saw on sale last week.
Since the drive is aimed at UMPC and tablet PC manufacturers, no price has been given. But since SSDs aren’t that commonplace yet, I’m assuming it doesn’t come that cheap. Perhaps three years down the road these will be a dime-a-dozen, but not today.
