Super Talent unveils 512GB SSD drive

Commercial solid-state drives (SSDs) have finally started reaching the capacities found in the hard disk world, with the release of a new 512GB drive from storage start-up Super Talent.

The company has announced for sale its 2.5-in. MasterDrive RX range in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, three of which are based around multilevel cell (MLC) NAND flash chips tied to a standard SATA II interface. Another two, based on single-level cell (SLC), are available in 128GB and 256GB capacities.

Sequential read performance for the drives is rated at up to 230MB/sec. for all five models, or 160MB/sec. for the MLC models, and 200MB/sec. for the SLC equivalents. The MLC products come with two-year guarantees, the SLCs with three years.

The company claims that its RAIDSSD technology -- basically a way of feeding data to and from the drives using efficient I/O -- boosts performance compared to a conventional NAND-based SSD.
The drive follows last year's first of a 256GB SSD, designed specifically for laptops. Although Super Talent claims to be first to the 512GB mark, other vendors have announced similar products in recent months, but without volume commercial availability being confirmed.

"The MasterDrive RX is the latest product utilizing our patented RAIDSSD technology. From a performance standpoint, it's like having two SSDs in the space of one, and it extends our standard 2.5-in. SATA-II product line to include a 512GB SSD," said Jeremy Werner, Super Talent's senior product marketing manager.

Prices clearly aim the drives at the high-end and data center markets, with the 512GB model costing just under $1,500 in 1,000-unit batches. Prices were not announced for the other capacities, but are expected to be priced proportionally.

Price aside, the company is the first to offer such a capacity in a shipping product, but that advantage may not last long.Storage rival OCZ showed a 1TB "Z drive" enclosure at this year's CeBIT show that's built around packing together four of its 256GB MLC-based SSDs. The company has promised 4TB versions, with read performance of up to 600MB/sec., by the end of 2009. That would set a new benchmark for data center SSDs.
