Super Talent adds SSDs

Super Talent made two product line announcements on Thursday, including new MasterDrive EX2- and IX2-series of solid state drives (SSDs) and a range of SSD upgrade kits for the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook. The 2.5-inch MasterDrive EX2 and IX2 SSDs more than double the performance of their predecessors and are available in Multi-Level Cell (MLC) and Single-Level Cell (SLC) designs, respectively.

The EX2s sport sequential read speeds as fast as 80MBps and sequential write speeds of 40MBps and can be had in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants. All have a parallel ATA interface and include a two-year warranty. The SLC MasterDrive IX2 drives can be had in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, and are rated at up to 80MBps sequential read speeds and 60MBps sequential write speeds. All IX2s get a three-year warranty.

At the same time, Super Talent released the upgrade modules for the Dell Inspiron Mini 9, available in the standard Half Mini PCIe form factor and a Double Wide Half Mini PCIe developed by Super Talent. Either features a custom IDE/PATA interface that works with the Mini 9 netbook. Either allows Mini 9 owners to upgrade their netbooks without performing any modifications to the case.

The Half Mini form factor kits are available in 16GB and 32GB capacities with an MLC design, as well as 8GB and 16GB in SLC. The Double Wide Half MLC drives can be had in 64GB and 128GB capacities, while the SLC versions ship in 32GB and 64GB capacities.

Super Talent will have the new products on display at its booth at the 2009 Computex Taipei show that kicks off on June 2. While no pricing has been announced for the EX2 and IX2 SSDs, the 16GB Half Mini 2 upgrade kit for the Mini 9 is priced at $75 and the 32GB version at $110, while the 64GB Double Wide Half Mini 2 kit costs $200 and the 128GB version carries a $380 sticker.
