Super Talent Launches MLC SATA-II SSDs for Notebooks

High-Speed MasterDrive SSDs Offer Unprecedented Performance & Reliability




San Jose, California – May 6, 2008 – Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today launched a new line of MasterDrive solid state drives (SSDs) that are 100% interchangeable with hard disk drives (HDDs), but are faster, lighter, use less power and are far more rugged and reliable.

MasterDrive SSDs use NAND Flash rather than magnetic platters as the storage medium, giving them many advantages over HDDs. These drives have no moving parts, and therefore are completely silent, lighter weight and more reliable than HDDs. Moreover, they consume a fraction of the power of HDDs, meaning they produce less heat and offer longer battery life in mobile computing. MasterDrive SSDs use a SATA-II (3Gbps) interface to support high bandwidth and broad compatibility with motherboards, and have a standard 2.5-inch form factor. Proprietary wear-leveling algorithms extend the life of these SSDs.

Code:
MasterDrive MX Description MSRP FTM20GK25H 120GB MLC 120/40 MB/sec $699 FTM60GK25H 60GB MLC 120/40 MB/sec $449 FTM30GK25H 30GB MLC 120/40 MB/sec $299 MasterDrive DX Description MSRP FTD60GK25H 60GB SLC 120/70 MB/sec $1299 FTD30GK25H 30GB SLC 120/70 MB/sec $699
“These new SSDs are a rugged, lightning fast, low power storage alternative for mobile professionals and enthusiasts. With such overwhelming benefits, MasterDrive SSDs are sure to revolutionize mobile storage”, commented Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James.

MasterDrive DX drives employ SLC NAND Flash to support astounding sequential read and write speeds up to 120 and 70 MB/sec respectively, and are backed with a three year warranty. MasterDrive MX drives use MLC Flash to achieve maximum sequential read/write speeds of 120 and 40 MB/sec, and include a 1-year warranty. MasterDrive SSDs are available now from NewEgg and eWiz.

Super Talent also manufactures ultra-rugged DuraDrive SSDs in capacities up to 256GB. Super Talent will showcase it’s complete range of Flash and DRAM products at the Computex Convention in Taipei June 3-7 at Nangang Hall Area 4F #N518.
