128GB SSD, 4GB DIMMs
Memory maker Super Talent has announced a pair of products with unusually high capacities. The first comes in a series of new SATA flash drives, ranging in size from a 1.8-inch 16GB model to a 3.5-inch 128GB model, a size still rarely seen in computing due to cost; the bulk of the iPhone's price, for example, will come from the 8GB of onboard memory. All of Super Talent's new flash drives should reach OEMs and resellers in April. Also scheduled that month is the production of new DIMM modules -- unique in that they are 4GB, fully-buffered DDR2 chipsets, geared towards high-performance Xeon servers. Users will pay for the privilege, as 533MHz chips will cost $1,049, while 667MHz chips will be $1,199.
