They can also be used in PCs with chips such as Intel or AMD. There was no clues given that the company was going to launch this product. Just like its other products It could give it that push to come up with new products down the line.


“The sequential read speed for the SSDs is between 510MBps (megabytes per second) and 520MBps. The sequential write speed is 360MBps for the 120GB drive and 450MBps for the 960GB drive.”

On the 120 GB drive the random read speed is 57,400 IOPS which means input-output per second, and 79,520 IOPS on the 960 GB drive. The company that actually made the SSDs is called Galt.

The way that the SSD can read and write speeds varies depending on manufacturing technology, and controller on the drives and the cell structure,. Although it will make the drive more reliable, the controller could slow it down as well.
