PQI 64GB Flash Drive

Storage producer PQI at CES demonstrated one of the largest solid state drives yet available for everyday computers. Shown in early form last year, the 64GB Solid State Disk would double the capacity of the 32GB SanDisk SSD revealed earlier this month while also shipping as a 2.5-inch Serial ATA hard drive, making it a more direct replacement for magnetic disks in notebook PCs. The reliability that comes with a lack of moving parts is accompanied by speed. PQI claims a 100MB/sec peak transfer rate, exceeding even the speed of desktop hard drives in RAID stripes. No pricing or ship dates have been given, though pricing will likely be substantially higher than the $600 price of the 32GB SanDisk model. [via DailyTech]
