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

New rumor says MacBook Air changes flash storage.

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.
