Samsung doubles solid-state drive capacity
Now at a whopping 64GB
Samsung has upped the capacity of its Flash-based SSD line to 64GB, offering the unit in the media player- and notebook-friendly 1.8in form factor.
The 64GB drive is faster than its predecessor too, with maximum read and write speeds of 64MBps and 45MBps, respectively - 4.3 and 6.4 times greater than a typical 80GB hard disk drive, Samsung claimed, and 1.2 and 1.5 times faster than its 32GB SSD.
The new solid-state drive isn't available yet - Samsung said the product won't go into mass-production until next quarter.
