Default Samsung intros new solid state drives

The SSDs will come in three flavours: 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. These sparsely populated PCB units are fast on sequential reads, but relatively slow on the writes. Read numbers are 90MB/s throughout, but as the chip density goes up, so does the write performance – 25MB/s, 45MB/s and 70MB/s respectively. Not the most impressive of specs, but of course they are using MLC Flash memory: cheaper and with lower write performance than SLC Flash.

You won’t be breaking any speed records, that’s for sure, but the netbook and nettop makers will kiss the Chaebol’s pinky for this grand gesture
