Samsung 64GB Solid State Drives now shipping
Posted on 11-Sep-2007 11:27 | Tags Filed under: News



Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, is making the 2.5-inch SATA, 64 gigabyte (GB) solid state drive (SSD) available in Dell and Alienware consumer notebooks.

Alienware will provide a 128GB SSD configuration, by offering dual 64GB SSD drives in a RAID 0 array, as well as a single 64GB SSD combined with a large capacity 200GB 7200RPM drive, available on the Area-51 m9750 gaming notebook.

Dell is offering the SSD drive on its premium XPS M1330 ultra-portable notebook, and expects to make it available across additional XPS systems, as well as Latitude corporate notebooks and Dell Precision mobile workstations later this year.

“Dell combined with Alienware offer the most comprehensive set of notebooks available with SSD technology because customers are demanding more reliable and durable mobility solutions,” said Tom Pratt, storage technologist, Dell’s CTO Group. “Samsung’s new drive delivers additional capacity and performance that gives customers another reason to choose solid-state technology.”

The 64GB SSD provides increased performance and a higher degree of reliability, which exceed traditional rotating disk drives. Because there are no moving parts, SSDs are noise-free, produce very little heat and are less susceptible to shocks and vibrations that can be challenging to traditional disk drives.

“The greater reliability and higher performance of solid state drives makes them a highly viable alternative to hard drives in corporate and high-end consumer notebooks, said Jim Elliott, director, flash marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. “We're delighted that Dell and Alienware have chosen the Samsung 64GB SSD for their latest generation of leading-edge notebooks.”
