Samsung has introduced a new line of SSDs using a form factor 30% smaller than the 2.5-inch SSD that is common today. Samsung says the small, high-performance and low-density SATA II SSDs are cost-efficient to make.

The new SSDs are available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities and use multi-level cell technology. The new SSDs will enter mass production next month. The 32GB SSD has a read speed of 90MB/s and a write speed of 70GB/s. The read speed remains constant, but the write speed varies with capacity. The 16GB has a write speed of 45MB/s and the 8GB has a write speed of 25MB/s.

"We've refined our manufacturing techniques and redesigned our low-density SSDs to get what the low-priced PC market is looking for in the way of improved cost, performance and availability," said Jim Elliott, Vice President, Memory Marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.
