A month ago, Micron announced the first SATA 6 Gbits /s SSD. Lexar, subsidiary of Micron, said today that this product will be sold as part of the Crucial range, which is already well known for Ballistix memory modules but also for M225 SSDs based on an Indilinx controller.
There has been no change in the spec of this Crucial RealSSD C300 from the initial announcement and it will still come in the form of a 2.5" disk available in 128 GB and 256 GB versions. 34nm MLC Flash NAND is still used, combined with a Marvell controller. What's most impressive with this SSD is the sequential read speeds announced at 355 MB/s!
While the SATA 6 Gbits/s interface is obviously not for magnetic disks, it comes into its own with the new generation of SSDs. The Crucial RealSSD C300 should be available as of February.
