Default Samsung announces 256 GB, 200 MB/s solid state disk drive

The drive is based on the company’s multi-level cell (MLC) and will be equipped with a SATA II interface. Samsung promises that the 2.5” version, which is just 9.5 mm thick, will hit data read rates of 200 MB/s and sequential read rates of 160 MB/s. WD’s 300 GB Velociraptor 3.5” hard drive, considered the fastest traditional hard drive on the market today, was benchmarked by major hardware review sites and achieved data read and write rates of just over 100 MB/s.

While Samsung’s SSD performance numbers look fantastic, it is unclear how expensive this drive will be. 256 GB 2.5” SSDs currently cost somewhere in the range of $7000, while WD’s Velociraptor hard drive sells for $300.

Did it mean to say 'sequential write rates' or was it correct and there is no mention of write rates at all.

"write transfer rates of 100 MB/s." where did you see sequential?

The write rates of over 100MB/s refer to the Velociraptor.

The SSD is probably going to win non-sequential every time unless it's just a junk drive anyway. And if they're going by those numbers, who cares? I wish there was some sort of metric that was analogous to level load times or boot times.

the article doesn't mention write speeds of the Samsung, does mention SSD writes speeds overall

The currently fastest SSDs on the market are typically hitting read transfer rates of 130 MB/s and write transfer rates of 100 MB/s.
