BiTMICRO promises super-capacity solid-state disk for Q3 2008

No, you didn't just misread the title to this article. BiTMICRO Networks is moving forward with plans to announce an 832GB SATA 2.5" solid-state disk (SSD) at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.

The new 832GB SSD is a part of BiTMICRO's E-Disk Altima family and uses multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory to increase storage densities. BiTMICRO claims that the drive will "deliver sustained rates of up to 100 MB per second and up to 20,000 I/O operations per second."

"This latest product pre-announcement seeks to establish BiTMICRO’s commitment to deliver solid state storage in all market applications," said Rudy Bruce, BiTMICRO's Executive VP for Marketing and Sales. "We are excited to offer E-Disk Altima SATA flash solid state drive as a PC and enterprise storage alternative offering the best-in-class capacity, performance and reliability."

The 416GB counterpart to BiTMICRO's newest SSD entry was announced in early September 2007. At that time, BiTMICRO said that samples of its E-Disk Altima family would ship in Q1 2008 with production availability coming in March 2008.

BiTMICRO has since revised that forecast and projects that samples of the E-Disk Altima will be available during Q2 2008 with production models ranging from 32GB to 832GB coming in Q3 2008.

Pricing hasn't been announced for the massive 832GB drive, but expect to pay a pretty penny. Considering that 128GB SSDs can hover around the $4,000 USD mark, it's not too far-fetched to project that an 832GB SSD could be had for the price of a BMW 1-Series.





"It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I'm okay with that." -- Microsoft COO Kevin Turner
