Micron RealSSD C300 SATA 6Gbps drive teases awesome performance [Video]

Only a fool argues with more speed in their computer, and by that logic only a fool would argue with the Micron RealSSD C300.  The first SSD to comply natively with the new SATA 6Gbps specification, the RealSSD C300 is capable of up to 355MB/sec read speeds and up to 215MB/sec write speeds and will be available in 128GB and 256GB sizes.

Intel and Micron announce super-efficient 32Gb MLC NAND memory

Intel and Micron announce super-efficient 32Gb MLC NAND memory

Intel and Micron have announced a new high-density, cost-effective memory chip, that could bring down the price of flash cards and USB drives.  The chip uses 3-bit-per-cell (3bpc) multi-level cell (MLC) NAND technology and is manufactured on a 32nm production line; the two companies are calling it "the industry's smallest and most cost-effective 32-gigabit chip that is currently available on the market."

Micron introduces Serial NAND Flash memory for embedded applications

Micron introduces Serial NAND Flash memory for embedded applications

Today Micron Technology Inc announced a serial NAND flash memory technology, providing embedded applications with the flexibility to easily upgrade their storage capacity. With storage space starting at 1Gb, Micron’s serial NAND flash allows users to easily upgrade storage capacity beyond what is currently available with serial NOR flash, with a significant cost-per-bit advantage.

Micron 1GB/s SSD to be released in the near future

Micron 1GB/s SSD to be released in the near future

Well this is exciting news. Micron has come up with a new SSD that could actually break current records for internal storage and would be incredibly fast. This new storage would actually use two solid-state drives that have 16 data channels. This would make for a transfer speed of up to 1GB/second!

Call me impressed! Performance exceeds 200,000 input/output operations per second. It also requires that the current Serial ATA II 300MB/s bandwidth cap be released with a PCI Express. During a demo video, the SSDs are mounted on cards and these managed to top 800MB/s.

Micron C200 256GB SSD & P200 enterprise SSD announced

Micron C200 256GB SSD & P200 enterprise SSD announced

Micron have announced a pair of new Solid State Drives (SSDs) in their RealSSD range, in the shape of the C200 and the P200.  Where the former is an SATA drive aimed at consumers, offering up to 256GB in the 2.5-inch form factor or 128GB in the 1.8-inch, it uses MLC flash promising read rates of up to 250MB/s and write rates of up to 100MB/s.

Micron RealSSD drives unveiled in 32 and 64 gigabyte varieties

Micron RealSSD drives unveiled in 32 and 64 gigabyte varieties

Micron, though not a notable name of its own, are the owners of Lexar and Crucial, one of which you surely have heard of. The entire line of RealSSD drives ranges from 1GB all the way up to 64GB, with the 32 and 64 gigabyte sizes being the latest additions.

The two new drives are also targeted at notebook and desktop use utilizing a SATA II connection and sipping a low, low 2 watts of power. The 32GB model comes in your choice of 1.8” or 2.5” sizes with the 64GB model coming in at standard 2.5-inches.

1.75-micron, 8-megapixel image sensor from Micron Technologies.

Pocket cameras are about to get a little more robust with the introduction of a new 1.75-micron, 8-megapixel image sensor from Micron Technologies. Announced yesterday, the new chip is capable of bursting 10 pictures per second at its full 8-megapixel resolution, and will bring 720p HD imaging to super-small cameras.

Intel, Toshiba bring 3D NAND to SSD; small drives, large capacity

Intel, Toshiba bring 3D NAND to SSD; small drives, large capacity

SSD memory is fast. Really fast. It’s also much more stable than spinning drives are, making it pretty desirable for those who want reliable performance from their external drive or on-board memory (and who doesn’t?!). The limited offerings for SSD haven’t yet brought it to the mainstream bulk storage front, but a new technology just might do that. Pioneered by Toshiba and Intel, 3D NAND stacks SSD memory chips to allow for more memory in tighter spots? Early results have given us a 10TB SSD.

Olio’s smartwatch bets on quality and minimalism: Hands-on

Olio’s smartwatch bets on quality and minimalism: Hands-on

We still don't know what a smartwatch should - or shouldn't - do, but startup Olio is betting on just the right number amount of context and some serious timepiece quality. The Olio Model One, up for pre-order today, is the result: a chunky, touchscreen-faced smartwatch which eschews feature overload and instead focuses on what analog watches have been doing for hundreds of years: giving you the essentials at a glance. I sat down with founder Steve Jacobs to find out why he believes there's more to learn from traditional horology than just blunt case design, and how time saved might be the smartwatch secret.
