Ssd_2_5inch_220x150More good news on the Solid State Disk, or SSD front: Micron is joining this space with some products in production by the end of the year. Yup, a few short weeks from now, product lines will start churning out components, but what will they be? Looks like three distinct RealSSD lines:

  • 1.8- and 2.5-inch form factor SSD drives with capacity between 8- and 64-GB and 2W power draw when reading or writing data.
  • Embedded USB modules from 1- to 8-GB
  • Smaller modules sized at 25mm x 133.5mm x 4mm with a SATA interface

The embedded USB solution is the first up on the production line, but the other products aren’t far behind: mass production is expected in the first quarter of 2008. This marks another CES stop for my itinerary so we can get more info on pricing and availability.(via Geek)

  1. 2W power draw, how does that compare to traditional HDD’s?
