SanDisk Gets Its SSD On With New Solid State Drives
The SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD comes in 64, 128, and 256GB flavors. Expected sequential read/write speeds for the 128GB version are 530MBps / 290MBps and random read/write speeds are expected to be in the 80K IOPS / 33K IOPS range. The SSDs will be available “soon” and suggested retail prices are $74/$110/$219 for the 64/128/256GB models, respectively.
SanDisk is also promoting its new SSD for OEMs. The SanDisk X110 is Windows 8 WHCK-certified and SATA 6Gbps compliant (and supports SATA 1.5 and SATA 3Gbps). It can be used in desktops, of course, but the SSD is designed to be power-conservative with laptops and ultrabooks in mind.
