The Fastest SSD ever


This might be old news but i just though i should share it.

The last time i check, Mtron claimed to be the fastest SSD ever. For those who do not know, SSD stands for Solid State Drive & it is a big flash drive d size of a regular computer HDD (Hard Disk Drive). Its got no moving parts unlike regular HDDs makin them more power efficient for laptops as they claim to pose more access speed & longer battery life for mobile users but at a price. On the average, an SSD will cost between $400 to $1000 depending on capacity. The capacities are usually in the range of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and/or 256GB. 512GB are a sight for sore eyes... if you ever get 2 find any.

Anyways, The Pro 7500 series SSDs from Mtron are said to have a read speed of up to 130MBps and a write speed of up to 120MBps through a SATA II interface in capacities from 32GB to 128GB.

It's great that they're speedy but what is the point of speed when they are so expensive that no average man can afford one. Wake me up when the prices drops... lol
