The world of solid state drives got a little more crowded today with Super Talent announcing two new high end lineups the UltraDrive ME and UltraDrive LE. The first will target home users offering maximum sequential read and write speeds of 200MB/s and 160MB/s, respectively. These MLC-based drives will come in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities with a 2-year warranty and should be priced from $130 to $645.
The quicker UltraDrive LE series will be aimed squarely at the enterprise market, with a maximum sequential read speed of 230MB/s and a maximum sequential write speed of 170MB/s. Theres no mention of prices for these drives but they will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities with a 3-year warranty. Both series connect via SATA-II and are designed for notebook computers or other applications requiring 2.5-inch drives. More performance stats are available directly from Super Talent (PDF file), including comparison charts with an Intel X25-M solid state drive and a 7,200 RPM hard disk drive from Seagate.
