Super Talent Mini PCIe SSD

Super Talent on Tuesday announced the release of a line of mini PCI-Express SSD memory for use in the ASUS Eee PC lineup that includes the Eee PC 701, 702, 900, 901, 903, 905 and 1000. Available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, the three SSDs read data at 40MB per second and write back at 15MB per second while also offering a quick way to upgrade the maximum built-in 20GB of storage of the supported Eee PC netbooks. Each PCIe SSD memory card can be had in either NAND MLC or NAND SLC versions.

Compared to traditional hard disk drives, solid state drives use no moving parts, making them inherently more shock resistant. They also use up less energy while offering faster read and write speeds. Expected pricing for the 16GB mini PCIe SSD is $53, $79 for the 32GB SSD and $149 for the 64GB SSD when they begin shipping in November.
