Are you ready for the future? Or at least some crazy technology! SanDisk thinks you are. Whilst at the moment it’s intended for enterprise use, SanDisk today announced and released the worlds first 400GB SSD that plugs into your DDR3 RAM slot – standard DIMM slots – in turn reducing latency write times to a mere 5ms. The extreme speeds come at a rather hefty price tag, the 200GB variant will set your company back $1800 USD, and the bigger 400GB model comes in at $2200 USD. The application of such a device is perfect for anything needing almost instantaneous read and write speeds, optimization for server environments, as well as other tasks such as high-speed trading.
Don’t fret for all you home users out there – the technology as always will fall in manufacturing costs, so hopefully we can expect to see this incredible technology powering our rigs in just a few years time. For the meantime, if you’re a person who needs copious amounts of hyperspeed memory with near RAM like speeds – SanDisk has raised the bar yet again in memory storage standards. It’s an exciting future ahead of us! More information about the SSD DIMM SanDisk drive can be found here.
Thanks to SanDisk for providing us with this information.
