Samsung Unveils New 512GB SSD with Toggle-Mode Memory
Samsung has pulled a new SSD from its bag of tricks that uses Samsung's toggle-mode NAND chips. Those chips went into mass production back in November of 2009. The special NAND gives the SSD great performance.
Samsung claims that the SSD is capable of sequential read speeds of 250MB/s and sequential write speeds of 220MB/s. The SSD uses a specially designed SSD controller Samsung made just for its toggle-mode NAND.
The best thing about the controller isn’t the read and write speeds, it’s the power savings. Samsung claims the SSD will extend the battery life on a notebook by as much as an hour compared to traditional storage mediums. The drive will go into mass production next month.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
