Kingston SSDNow V+ 100 drives to use 32nm flash memory



/ 6 years ago

Kingston, a market leader in memory based products including desktop and flash memory have now announced that their SSDNow V+ 100 series SSD’s will come with 32nm processed flash chips as opposed to a 43nm process.

Kingston have a lot of different SSD’s on the market at the moment and this one uses very similar parts, with the controller as well as the memory itself being provided by Toshiba.

Performance wise, Kingston have stated that the sequential read and write speeds will remain at 230MB/s and 180MB/s respectively, whereas the new controller and newer 32nm process will give a performance boost of up to 25% compared to the previous model.

The drives will be available in the most common sizes including 64, 96, 128, 256 and 512GB with prices ranging from the £150 mark to anywhere near the £2000 mark. The drives will come with a 3-year warranty, but i don’t even think that can justify the high price point.

    Here's to market forces bringing the cost down, and creating SSDs that saturate SATA 3.0 😎

    We can only hope i guess. I still think SSD's are too over budget and believe that they won't be at a reasonable price until Q4 2011.Andy

    And for sure we won`t see SATA 3 SSD priced for everybody. At least not too soon.

    It`s all about SATA 3 the future is upon us. Little by little, USB 3.0 and SATA 3 will take over and it`s normal to wait for the next generation disks
