Computex 2011: SanDisk intros new SSD with SATA3 interface

SanDisk has introduced two new solid state drives (SSDs) for the mobile computing market – the U100 series for ultra-thin notebooks and the i100 targeted at tablet PCs – which are now being showcased at the ongoing Computex 2011.

Both new SSDs utilize the high-performance SATA3 interface, and also employ a low-power architecture that reduces power consumption to as low as 10mW. This combination of high performance and low power allows OEMs to develop feature-rich products with longer battery life.

The U100 is a successor to SanDisk's P4 modular SSD series, which enjoyed widespread adoption among ultra-thin notebooks and other mobile computing platforms, SanDisk said. The new drive delivers fast SATA3 performance with up to 450MB/sec sequential read and up to 340MB/sec sequential write speeds. It is available in 8GB to 256GB capacities.

In addition, the U100 SATA3 SSD has been selected by Asustek for use in the new UX Series ultra-thin notebook, SanDisk said.

The i100 SSD series is the addition to SanDisk's iSSD integrated storage device family. The drive is available in 8GB to 128GB capacities, offering tablet developers a flexible range of storage options. Its SATA performance achieves up to 450MB/sec sequential read and up to 160MB/sec sequential write speeds.

SanDisk's two new SATA3 SSDs are sampling now with volume production slated for the third quarter of 2011.
