Lately the company has been a very big player in the SSD segment of the technology market, offering a very wide range of products and with ever increasing sales; especially
Solid state drives (SSDs) are dropping in price much faster than hard disk drives (HDD), according to figures released by website uptime monitoring firm Pingdom.
If all goes well, then we can look forward to much larger SSDs come the second half of next year as Intel and Micron has announced that their joint venture IM Flash Technologies will be launching 128Gbit NAND flash sometime in the second half of next year. In the meantime, we'll have to make do
Samsung has been a long time OEM/ODM of notebook SSD's, least not to Apple, but not the company has announced that it's about to break into the Ultrabook market with its new PM830 series of mSATA SSD's. The company also has a model for hard drive caching, suitable for Ultrabooks, notebooks and desktops.
Sometimes technology companies really states the obvious and Kingston has now gone on record to say that it expects SSD drive adoption to take off significantly towards the second half of next year. The reason why you ask? Well, by then NAND flash is expected to have come down in cost to about US$1 per
The SSD market is growing rapidly with each passing day and became even more attractive after the recent catastrophe in Thailand which caused the prices of mechanical drives to rise significantly. One of the leading SSD providers is Corsair, which may have started off as a RAM modules manufacturer but today is famous for
We're not sure how many different SSD configurations we need, but Corsair has announced its Performance Pro series based on Marvell's controller. Despite the name, the Performance Pro series won't be competing with the SandForce based Force series of SSDs from Corsair when it comes to raw benchmark numbers, but with all the SandForce related
Another day, another new SSD range offering higher performance than the one announced the day before, oh, hang on, the new V200 series from Kingston isn't actually a high-end range of drives, instead Kingston has focused on good enough performance at a lower price point.

If you still think SSDs are too expensive, then OCZ might have a solution for you come early next year, as the company is planning to offer SSDs with TLC (three bits per cell) NAND flash. This means that less flash memory is needed to make an SSD of the same capacity as when MLC
SSD caching has as yet not take off, at least not that we're aware, although some of the first Ultrabooks seems to be taking advantage of Intel's SRT technology. Now Adata has announced its first mSATA SSDs which are as far as the press release is making it sound like, intended for use as hard
Besides OCZ's mSATA SSDs, we haven't seen anything based on Indilinx controllers since OCZ bought Indilinx back in March, well, that was until today when OCZ announced its new Octane series of SSDs based on the new Indilinx Everest controller. The new SSD controller not only offers SATA 6Gbps support and of course added performance,
ADATA started shipping its XM13 family of Sandforce-driven solid state drives (SSDs) in the mSATA form-factor. The XM13 was spotted at this year's Computex tradeshow, held in June, in Taiwan. ADATA is promising capacities and speeds comparable to SSDs in the 2.5-inch form-factor, and endurance that makes it fit for SSD caching on motherboards with
Intel has plans for the solid state drive (SSD) market that look deep into 2012. It is becoming increasingly clear that the company wants to give its SSD portfolio the breakneck product cycle its processor lineup enjoys, that of generation leaps every year or so. Looking into 2012, we see new models targeting pretty much
It's actually quite amazing how many products Samsung makes and there's no wonder that the company is starting to have such a dominant place in the mobile market space. The company announced no less than five new products related to mobile products, a new HD CMOS sensor, a 16Megapixel CMOS sensor, faster 64GB eMMC flash
A little earlier this month, we revealed key details of Intel's next enthusiast solid state drive series, the SSD 520, codenamed Cherryville. In the older article talked about its specifications to great lengths. Fresh tips from our sources suggests to important bits of information, its launch date and market positioning.
If OCZ's RevoDrive Hybrid is outside of your budget, then its new Synapse series of SSDs might appeal to you as the new range of drives have been designed specifically for SSD caching. The good news is that you don't need chipset level support to take advantage of the SSD caching feature either, as OCZ
According to SanDisk, the SATA standard just isn't power efficient enough for mobile devices and the company is now proposing that a new low power SATA standard should be developed. The company wants to cut the power consumption of mobile SSDs by 10 times, which is no mean feat, but SanDisk expects this to be
As an established player in the solid state drive (SSD) industry, Intel has at its disposal a market which it can address with the same breakneck product-cycle as its much larger x86 processor product lines. The most recent roadmap slide and accompanying information we scored suggests that a successor is already around the corner for
If recent developments are anything to go by, the next SSD battlefield is mSATA and OCZ is getting ready to join Intel, Sandisk, Kingston and several other companies with a couple of new products line that might prove to be popular in the upgrade market and possibly even with notebook manufacturers.
