More 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)
