Samsung is the first company in the industry to sample 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch 64GB solid state drives (SSD) with a SATA (Serial ATA) II/native SATA interface.
The 64GB SATA II SSD sports a sequential write speed of 100Megabyte per second (MBps) and sequential read speed of 120MBps. Samsung aims the FlashSSD drive towards notebook PCs, corporate servers, and other high-performance storage applications. Samsung's SATA II SSD combines a 50 nm-class, single-level-cell (SLC) 8Gb flash chip with a Samsung proprietary, high-speed SATA controller and supporting software.
The new SATA II SSD has a 3.0 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) interface speed which is twice as fast as its SATA I predecessor. Moreover, the SATA II SSD requires only half as much power as the 1.9 watts consumed by hard drives now used in notebook PCs and only one-tenth the power consumed by enterprise-class 15,000rpm hard drives in servers.
