Internally, the drive is comprised of 30nm 32Gb chips that can run at 3.3V or 1.8V, and it features a new low-power controller designed specifically for toggle-mode NAND. Samsung says the controller analyzes frequency of use along with user preferences to activate a low-power mode, which could give notebooks an extra hour of battery life or more.
Additionally, the drive makes use of 256-bit AES encryption so you can lockdown your data with peace of mind. Volume production is planned to kick off next month, but there's no information regarding a retail launch date or price – presumably because the drive will mostly ship to system builders.
