New MacBook Air uses Toggle DDR 2.0 instead of Blade X-Gale?
 
 

The new 2011 MacBook Air is expected to be released in July. Apple is either releasing the new MacBook Air on the day of the OS X Lion release or shortly thereafter. So far it was only rumored that the new MacBook Air will adopt new CPUs from Intel's Sandy Bridge generation. Today a new rumor from Japan says that Apple will adopt the a new high-speed flash memory dubbed Toggle DDR 2.0. Toggle DDR 2.0 allows for 400Mbps transfer speeds. Current MacBook Air laptops have SSD storage based on Blade X-gale supporting 220MB/s read and 180MB/s write speeds.

The odd thing is that Toggle DDR 2.0 is slower than Blade X-gale. I am not quite sure what is going on here. AppleInsider has in their report Toggle DDR 2.0 specified with 400MB/s, but the original specification states 400Mbps.

About the Geek Mind

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.
