Samsung MacBook Air SSDs Could Get Better Performance

This is an interesting possibility for fans of the Apple MacBook Air. 9to5Mac reports that at CES 2012 this week it spent some time talking to the Samsung folks. Apparently, something that came out of the talks was the fact that Samsung is now sold out of the SSD that Apple buys in bulk for the Air notebooks.

With those SSDs no longer around, Apple would apparently need to move to the new version called the 830 series. The cool thing is that if Apple stays with Samsung since the 470 is no more, the 830 is much faster. The 840 has a rated performance of 400MB/s writes and 500MB/s read. That would make it nearly twice as fast as the old 470.

We have to take this with some salt though. Apple could do several things including only using Toshiba since Samsung and Toshiba SSDs are used in the line interchangeably today. Apple is also likely sitting on a massive stockpile of the 470 SSDs. Keep an eye out if you are in the market to buy, the faster 870 would be the version to get in your machine if you have a choice.

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.
