Samsung doubles the capacity of its SSD

The battle in the solid state disk (SSD) arena continues to get fiercer as Samsung has announced a new 1.8" 64GB SSD to accompany the existing 32GB unit. The new drive offers read and write performance that has been increased 20 percent and 60 percent respectively over the latter offering.

Samsung's new 64GB SSD takes advantage of SLC flash and offers read speeds of 65MB/s and write speeds of 45MB/sec. The older 32GB SSD drive introduced last year puts up numbers of 53MB/sec and 30MB/sec respectively.

For comparison, SanDisk lists the read speeds of its newly announced 2.5" 32GB SSD drive at 67MB/sec -- write speeds were not given. Adtron’s latest SSDs trump both offerings, however, with read speeds of 65-70MB/sec and write speeds of 65-55MB/sec.

Samsung expects that the market for SSDs will jump dramatically over the next four years. The company is forecasting that shipments will jump from 2.2 million units in 2006 to 9 million in 2010. Likewise, sales are expected to rise from $56 million USD in 2006 to over $6.8 billion USD in 2010.
