     USB 3.0 at 200 MB/s from Patriot

    At CeBIT, Patriot officially launched a new, very high-end USB key, the Supersonic Magnum. Announced in 64 and 128 GB versions, these USB 3.0 drives use an 8-channel memory controller to maximise speeds. Sequential read and write speeds have been given as 200 and 110 MB/s respectively.


    Availability has been announced for the second quarter for an as yet undisclosed price. At the end of last year Pariot announced the USB 3.0 Supersonic with a memory controller with just four channels and sequential read and write speeds of 100 and 70 MB/s.



     Intel 320 Series: mid April

    Following the launch of its 510 series range equipped with 34nm NAND and a Marvell controller, Intel is getting ready to launch the true successor to its X-25Ms. Under the name 320 Series, this will be the third generation of Intel MLC SSD. According to the Intel roadmaps, it should be available in 40, 80, 160, 300 and even 600 GB versions. The higher density is of course due to moving across to 25nm NAND chips.


    The 510 Series, in parallel with the forthcoming 320 Series


    According to VR-Zone, the launch of the 320 Series range will take place in mid-April, with respective sequential read and write speeds of 250 MB/s and 170 MB/s. They also give figures of 50,000 and 40,000 IOPS for random reads and writes (4 KB). It will be interesting to see how Intel handles the question of longevity, which is complicated by the reduced number of delete cycles supported by 25nm chips (3000 for the Micron chips currently used, instead of 5 to 10K), as well as the relative positioning of 510 Series products: while the 510 Series gives higher sequential speeds on paper, the 320 Series range is announced as having better IOPS performance. This is partly due to the fact that the launch of the X-25M successor range was supposed to have come in the last quarter of 2010.
