Taipei, Taiwan - 24th June, 2010 - G.Skill International Co. Ltd., manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid-state storage, has today announced the warranty extension of the Phoenix and Phoenix Pro SSD series to 3 years.
In order to provide a better service for its customers, G.Skill has extended the warranty to 3 years for all Phoenix series SSD, Including Phoenix and the latest Phoenix Pro drives. For the consumers who have already purchased any G.Skill Phoenix series SSD, G.Skill will also provide 3 years warranty service too.
Israeli start-up Anobit Technologies Ltd. emerged from quiet mode today and announced its first product, a multilevel cell (MLC) solid-state drive that it says is as reliable as today's higher-end and higher-cost single-level cell (SLC) enterprise-class flash drives.
Anobit said its Genesis SSDs extend standard MLC endurance from about 3,000 to more than 50,000 write/erase cycles, an improvement of 20 times over the average consumer-class drive today -- making MLC technology suitable for high-duty cycle applications such as relational databases.
Up until now Solid State Disk (SSD) storage was the Porsche 911 of storage technologies – screamingly fast (boot your computer faster than you can read this paragraph), expensive (up to 15X more expensive per gigabyte), and a little tight on the inside for heavy users (not much storage capacity). Now SSD is also more energy efficient than hard disk drive technology (so aside from cost, maybe more like a Chevy Volt)
Do you miss the short lived 1st gen Intel SSD based Kingston SSDNow V series? Intel today slashed the price of the X25-V Value SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) to $125.
Raidon on Monday unveiled the HyBrid Disk, a storage device that features both a solid-state drive (SSD) and a hard drive in one mechanism.
Designed to replace 3.5-inch hard drive mechanisms, users read and write files to the SSD while the hard drive mirrors the SSD contents at scheduled intervals, creating a back up of the data.
SSDs haven’t found their way into the mass market yet, but a team of Japanese researchers is already trying to make them more worthwhile. The team claims it has developed a technology that helps to shrink the size of SSDs by no less than 90%, makes them cheaper and boosts energy efficiency by 70%.
The research group is comprised of people from a handful of different institutions, i. e. Toshiba or Keio University in Tokyo (where Professor Tadahiro Kuroda is the main person responsible).
The new technology makes it possible to produce 1TB SSDs that are as small as a postage stamp.
Corsair has announced two new series in its SSD lineup, the Nova and Reactor. The Nova will be available in 64 and 128GB capacities, while the Reactor series will be available in 60 and 120GB capacities.
The 2.5-inch Nova series is most likely based on the quite popular Indilinx Barefoot controller, uses MLC NAND chips and has 64MB of cache.
SilverStone has just announced its HDDBoost, a device that teams an SSD with a hard disk. The aim is to offer the incredibly fast data access speeds typical of SSDs with the high capacity of a hard disk but to make it easy to use, so both appear as a single storage device in Windows. Essentially, the HDDBoost uses an SSD as an huge cache for your hard disk, theoretically delivering the best of both technologies with no compromise.
"As SSDs continue to gain popularity, the questions about how to properly set them up have become more frequent. To make matters worse, there have been so many sources of bad information published on the web. Even worse, a few companies have sold software that “Enables up to 50 times extra performance from your SSD”. When tested, the software actually slowed down disk performance.
Today we are going to cut through all of the hype and discuss proven methods that will allow you to get the most out of your high performance desktop or notebook.
"Everywhere you look, people are talking about SSDs (Solid State Drives) and their advantages. You may think that everybody has already replaced their hard drive with an SSD but you. This is far from the truth; what happens is that most memory manufacturers are putting a lot of effort on marketing SSDs basically because their profit margin on regular memory modules has dropped tremendously in the past few years. Add the price drop on memory itself, and SSDs seem to be a good idea for them to make more money.
