San Jose, California – July 22, 2008 – Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced that the company has dramatically improved the write speeds of its MasterDrive DX, MasterDrive KX and MasterDrive MX solid state drives (SSDs).

These three series of SSDs already boast exceptionally fast read speeds of up to 120 MB/sec. But, fast write speeds are important in applications such as video editing and encoding, image processing, compressing and extracting files, installing applications and copying files to the drive. These newly revised SSDs categorically outpace the fastest hard drives in the world.

MasterDrive series SSDs now support much faster read and write speeds and faster seek and access times than the speediest hard drives.

Other SSD advantages over hard drives are:

  • Superior resistance to shock and vibration;
  • Use less power in both active and standby modes, and produce less heat;
  • Completely silent The 60GB and 120GB models support slightly faster write speeds than 15GB and 30GB models.
“Our expert engineering team is constantly discovering new ways to improve our products, and this is one improvement that will be well received by power laptop users”, commented Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James. “We continue our relentless drive to add performance, features and value to our SSDs while driving the price down”, Mr. James added. MasterDrive SSDs are available now from NewEgg and Newbiiz.
