Default Samsung ready to release 16GB solid state hard drives

SOUTH KOREAN electronics giant Samsung said it has made the first solid state disk (SSD) using NAND flash memory.
It can make SSDs to support capacities of up to 16GB, it said, suitable for notebook and tablet PCs, and with power consumption rates less than five per cent of current hard drives. That, it said, will extend the battery life of notebook PCs by over 10 per cent.

The weight savings are also considerable - SDDs will be less than half the weight of comparable hard drives.

The drives will also include performance rate by a claimed 150 per cent, with the disk reading data at 57Mbps and write speeds of 32Mbps. It also is much quieter and emits less heat than conventional hard drives.

Even though they have a very diferent structure than conventional HDDs, Samsung said that they will design them to look the same, for compatibility purposes.

Samsung said it will release a 1.8-inch SDD in August this year, but has developed 2.5-inch drives using 16 NAND flash memories of 4Gbit or 8Gbit densities. The 1.8-inch SDDs will also come in 4GB and 8GB flavours, Samsung said.

Will these be faster than the 74GB Raptor?
If it does I would seriously consider putting my Operating system in it.

Will they actually be usable for a desktop?

I've seen solid state drives before; it uses RAM & PCI card to deliver impressive performance; it's expensive as hell of course

with PCIe and cheaper RAM this might become very interesting though as system drive; Windows (and any other OS) would fly, performance would triple

that's another extra. I'm trying out a software called [g]Ramdisk[/g], allows you to set up a part of your memory as disk in windows. put my Firefox cache file there, let's see if it flies
