Mtron announces new SSDs and new SSD controller tech

Posted in Mtron by Shane McGlaun on June 20th, 2008

Mtron XTM 7500Today the common speed that SSDs operate at is 130MB/s for read and 120MB/s for write speed. This is significantly faster than traditional hard drives can match, even when spinning at 10000 RPM. Eventually the SSD will replace the traditional hard drive, but right now the hard drive still reigns supreme.

Mtron has announced a new controller technology for SSDs that will make the SSD even more appealing to enterprise customers. The new controller tech uses 8-channels rather than the 4 used today. Mtron says the new controller technology will allow for read speeds of 260MB/s and write speeds of 240MB/s. Drives based on the new controller technology are expected in early 2009.

Nintendo Wii USB devices coming soon?

Nintendo Wii USB devices coming soon?
You find some interesting things when browsing the web. One interesting Wii related tidbit that some browsers came across is a job listing at Nintendo of America. One that suggests that Nintendo might finally be ready to up the USB support for the Wii.

The job search was for a “Software and Hardware Tester” which isn’t unusual, but they’re looking for one who can put in place a “test plan for Wii’s USB devices.” Some are thinking that this could mean external USB storage devices like hard drives and flash drives, since the Wii is severely lacking in that department. It might mean a more complete USB compatibility, with other devices as well. It would be nice to use something other then the 1 or 2 keyboards that currently work.
