Kingston unveils new SSD 8 November 2010 15:23:59
A new solid state drive (SSD) has been unveiled by technology firm Kingston.
Called the SSDNow V+100, the new drive is designed for the enterprise market and has 25 per cent better performance levels than its predecessor, while a 96GB capacity option has been added.
In addition, the new SSD comes with an "enhanced garbage collection" feature that cleanses redundant data from the drive to prevent performance degradation and maintains the drive over its life cycle.
"Kingston SSDNow drives have been extremely well received in the worldwide IT marketplace," said Steve Hall, European product development manager at Kingston.
"Our customers have told us that they need an SSD solution that ideally sits both price- and capacity-wise between the 64GB and 128GB drives."
With a 2.5-inch form factor, this new series is now available in 64GB, 96GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities.
It follows the recent release of the RevoDrive X2 PCI-Express SSD from rival firm OCZ, which is available in capacities up to a huge 960GB.
