32GB Flash memory HDD by Samsung

Samsung announced their 32GB Flash memory HDD for notebooks yesterday. The big advantages of this technology are the speed and the shock resistance, so no way of killing a HDD because of vibrations. Noise will be drastically reduced too, and less heat will be generated, so soon we’ll be able to say goodbye to those genital BBQ’s!


Samsung Launches NAND Flash-based Solid State Disk
for Mobile PCs

Taipei, Taiwan – March 21, 2006: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the leader in advanced semiconductor technology, announced at the Mobile Solution Forum that it has begun offering a 32-Gigabyte (GB) NAND flash-based solid state disk (SSD) — marking the first time that NAND flash has moved into mobile computing applications.
The 32GB Flash-SSD, which serves the same purpose as a hard disk drive, is a sophisticated data storage medium for notebooks and other mobile computers. It uses instantly-accessible, non-moving NAND flash memory instead of the rotating discs found in hard drives; therefore can upload and download data quickly and quietly with minimal power consumption.
The Flash-SSD weighs only half as much as a comparably-sized hard drive, but reads data three times faster and writes data 1.5 times faster. The SSD uses just five percent of the electricity needed to power a hard disc drive and is noiseless. Its design is free of any motor or other mechanical parts.
The commercialization of Samsung’s 32GB Flash-SSD is a historic milestone for storage devices as it marks the initial entry of NAND flash memory in the mass mobile PC market.
Samsung sees the overall global SSD market surging from US$540 million in 2006 to US$4.5 billion by 2010.
