Super Talent has announced that it will be releasing one of the largest solid-state drives (SSDs) in the world.
The new 2TB RAIDDrive SSDs will be aimed at gaming personal computers, servers and workstations however the price is likely to be so big that it will draw small moons into its orbit.
OEM pricing for the 1TB RAIDDrive GS is $4,999 which might put it out of the reach of gamers but also those who want to use it for workstation users.
According to the press release the RAIDDrive SSDs are a quantum leap ahead of existing SSDs in sequential transfer speeds due to our RAID architecture combined with the latest in flash technology and the bandwidth of the PCI Express interface.
Super Talent’s RAIDDrive supports sequential read speeds of up to 1.4GB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 1.20GB/s.
The RAIDDrive, which operates flash memory chips in RAID mode to boost performance, has a 1GB of DRAM cache and utilizes PCI Express 2.0 x8 interface.
It does go quite fast. Performance of the new RAIDDrive is even higher than maximum speed of OCZ Technology’s Z-Drive which can run up to 500MB/s read speed and up to 470MB/s write speed.
