ADATA has unveiled a new SSD that it claims is the industry's fastest. The drive, called the S596, uses a 2.5-inch form factor, and connects via SATAII. The SSD promises to load apps five times faster than normal HDDs. The drive uses next generation flash technology and a DDR2 SDRAM buffer to provide a boot up time of 20 seconds running Windows 7.

That boot time is a 40% improvement compared to a normal SSD. The drive will come in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities. The SSD is compatible with both PC and Mac computers and it has a miniUSB port built in allowing it to be used as an external storage device.

You might think that ADATA would want to brag about the read and write speeds of the SSD considering it claims the new drive is the fastest in the industry. There are no performance figures offered for the drive. Pricing and availability are unknown.
