Toshiba 512GB 2.5-inch SSDs Mark A World First

Toshiba have today announced a new line of flash-based 2.5-inch notebook SSDs that mark an industry first with a top storage capacity of 512GB. The drives are based on 43 nanometer Multi-Level Cell NAND and will be displayed at the upcoming CES 2009 in January.

Mass-production of the drives is slated for the second quarter of 2009 and will be produced in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities in addition to the groundbreaking 512GB model. The drives will all get a 3Gbps SATA-II connection with a maximum read speed of 240MBps, a zippy 200MBps write speed and AES data encryption.

The THNS512GG8BB 512-gig drive should help fulfill the growing need for more capacious SSDs for laptops and enable the technology to better compete with its HDD rivals.
