There are plenty of announcements rolling in from the Intel Developers Forum in San Francisco this week, and one of them concerns SanDisk’s new proposed SATA standard called SATA DEVSLP. Simply put, SATA DEVSLP is designed to enable SSDs to consume less power while still ensuring excellent performance. According to SanDisk, current SSDs... Read more...
It was SanDisk's own CEO who confessed years back that no one could "out iPod the iPod," but the company is still plugging along with their Sansa line of MP3 players. Granted, these simplistic players don't exactly compete with the iPod touch, but still, it's a little strange to see the company introducing a new rival, in any sense. The newest... Read more...
SanDisk recently launched a new line of SSD drives that is designed to breathe new life into aging computers. The SanDisk Ultra SSD is a SATA II-based drive that supports both TRIM and SMART.

Small enough? Never is. Fast enough? No way. We always yearn for things that are smaller, better and faster than before, and that's where SanDisk comes in to oblige. The company has just launched two new SSDs for tablets and ulta-thin notebooks, combining SATA III performance with power consumption as low as 10mW.  The U100 SSD series... Read more...

The deal has already been approved by the board of directors of both companies and is now just pending regulatory review and approval.... Read more...
45nm? Old. 32nm? Close, but no cigar. 19nm? That's the stuff. We're just kidding around about 45nm process technology being "so last year," but in reality, things truly are evolving really quickly in the CPU universe. And maybe even faster in the memory universe. SanDisk is obviously a major player in the latter, and they just announced a... Read more...
It's pretty amazing how tiny storage is becoming. 3.5" hard drives just seem enormous sitting beside some of these tiny modules, but that's a good thing. The smaller we can get things, the easier it'll be to become mobile, so no gripes there. SanDisk is a big proponent of small, and that's shown with the introduction... Read more...
Taking aim at serious photography buffs and enthusiasts who "need to shoot like the pros," SanDisk today introduced its new Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I card. What is UHS-I, you ask? For those of you not savvy to the newly released SD 3.0 specification, that's the new Ultra High Speed technology, and with it, SanDisk says its card can achieve up... Read more...
Do you love speed? Do you need a new CompactFlash card? SanDisk has something you should check out, but only if you have loads of spare cash. It's funny, really. New hard drives and other storage mediums are always crazy expensive whenever a new size/capacity emerges, and that's evident again with the introduction of... Read more...
When we think of SanDisk, we typically think of CompactFlash cards and other storage mediums for photography buffs (like the SanDisk Ultra SDXC memory card line). But SanDisk also dabbles in solid state drive options, some of which you'll find in Asus' upcoming Eee Slate EP121 tablets. Asus opted to use both the 32GB... Read more...
Well, this is the pain of progress. We love keeping things the same simply because it's easy. It's easy to acquire things that are compatible, and it's easy to forecast the future. But limits are eventually hit, and we have to innovate to move forward, even in the memory realm. The existing memory card formats that we... Read more...
In a joint announcement with middleware set-top box software company NDS MediaHighway, SanDisk today announced that its P4 solid state drives (SSDs) will be jammed into a new range of affordable set-top boxes with DVR-like functionality. "For the first time, SSDs are now a cost-effective alternative to hard drives in the STB market," said... Read more...
Is SanDisk back in the portable media player business? It looks like the answer may be "yes!" The company's Sansa line has faltered in recent years, with the last unit to come from it being introduced so long ago that most of you probably don't even remember it. The company's CEO once admitted that no one could "out... Read more...
Is that a SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB flash drive in your pocket, or did you just take a cold shower? If we threw you for a loop on that one, it's because SanDisk's latest USB flash drive is about the size of a standard paper clip and weighs about the same as a U.S. penny, so stuffing it into your pants isn't going to give that you that confidence-inducing...

Talk about a marvelous name for a product. In the world of flash memory, it's hard to keep any two devices apart. They all just seem to bleed together, accomplishing the same task regardless of the label. But SanDisk has somehow figured out a way to perk itself up in the midst of such an industry. How so? By naming their newest SD card the... Read more...

Both drives double the capacities of the company's previous... Read more...
Score a point for SanDisk, the flash memory card maker who managed to convince Microsoft to let them be the ones to provide the official Xbox 360 USB Flash Drive. Microsoft added USB storage device support to its gaming console less than a month ago, and with SanDisk's USB stick, gamers need not worry about formatting or downloading an initial... Read more...
MicroSDHC. It's a card within the popular Secure Digital family, but it's one you don't hear about very often. It's extremely small, smaller than a thumbnail, and they're generally quite expensive and only useful for cellphone owners. You see, most MicroSDHC card slots are found on mobile phones, where a small card is needed to boost storage... Read more...
