Super Talent SSD Speedup

Increasingly flash-focused drive maker Super Talent has given its MasterDrive MX solid-state drives a speed upgrade in a bid to compete against larger rivals. While read-back speeds remain the same at a peak of about 120MB per second, the MX drives now see faster recording speeds depending on the capacity of the drive. Both the 15GB and 30GB versions now write as quickly as 60MB per second. Larger-still 60GB and 120GB drives now approach fast desktop drives at 80MB per second.

The speed-up is the result of engineering developments, according to Super Talent, which expects the new 2.5-inch SSDs to find their way into high-performance notebooks. The Serial ATA drives were originally introduced in May and keep their prices of $299 (30GB), $449 (60GB), and $699 (120GB), although the storage maker is now offering a $40 discount on each of the MX models.
