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.
