Flash storage maker Super Talent Technology on Friday unveiled its latest product, the portable Storage POD Mini. The drive uses USB 3.0 and flash memory to make it no bigger than an internal 2.5-inch hard drive. It uses a SandForce SSD processor and reaches 260MBps read speeds as well as peak write speeds of 174MBps.
Flash memory maker Super Talent has now released its fastest range of SSDs thus far, with the 2.5-inch, SATA3-equipped TeraNova. All of the MLC drives get a fast SandForce 2200 controller with unique firmware. The drives are available in 64-, 120-, 240-, and 480GB capacities.
Super Talent has introduced its smallest and fastest mini PCIe SSD with the CoreStore MV. Available in both an MLC and SLC version, they are much faster than the company's previous products. The company combined Marvel's latest 88NV9143 controller and DDR ONFi 2 flash memory.
Flash memory device maker Super Talent this week introduced a USB 3.0 portable drive, the Storage POD. It has a data capacity of 500GB and has the headroom with the new port to run up to 10 times faster in burst speeds. SuperTalent says its latest can transfer files at up to 90MBps in a more sustained rate and is entirely USB-powered.
Super Talent has unveiled what's claimed as a first dual-role solid-state drive in the field. The UltraDrive MX can slot inside a computer as a typical 2.5-inch SATA II drive but also has a mini USB port to work as an external drive. With both, a user could run the MX as a primary drive but transfer data to a new machine like a typical backup.
Super Talent has introduced SuperCrypt, a new USB 3.0 drive with AES hardware encryption. The new USB drive offers transfer speeds of up to 240MBps and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports, albeit at the necessarily slower speeds. Two different AES encryption options are offered for the drive, one of which is 128-bit ECB encryption which comes with the regular SuperCrypt, while the other 256-bit XTS encryption is available for the SuperCrypt Pro.
Super Talent has expanded its line of USB storage drives with the USB 3.0 Express Drive. The new device supports speeds of up to 125MBps, enabling users to transfer large quantities of data in a relatively short periods of time. It comes in both 16GB and 32GB capacities and is compact enough to fit in a user's pocket. In addition to USB 3.0 support, the drive is also backwards compatible with all USB 2.0 ports.
Super Talent late Thursday rolled out a new class of solid-state drive for itself that it expects will help those with very high workloads. The TeraDrive FT2 runs on a new, high-speed controller from SandForce that will not only deliver peak read speeds of 250MB per second but do so for its lifetime. Most SSDs' performance gradually degrades without software improvements as inefficient writes gradually force longer seek times.
Super Talent has unveiled a new USB powered RAID storage system at CES, the RAIDDrive USB 3.0. The device offers transfer speeds over 300MBps when used with USB 3.0 supported systems -- five times the speed of USB 2.0 -- and is also backwards compatible with earlier USB ports. It should nonetheless be reliable, keeping data for 10 years or more, and uses a special USAP transfer protocol which is said to offer additional speed enhancements through bi-directional data transfers.
Super Talent on Wednesday revealed its new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 RAIDDrive lineup, which is up to ten times faster than USB 2.0 drives when transferring data. A system with both USB 3.0 ports and a special USB Attached SCSI driver can transfer at up to 320MB per second, or faster than most solid-state drives; it can still run at up to 200MB per second without the optimization. Super Talent claims to be using a special technology that involves multiple RAID pairs of differential serial data lines.
