BiTMICRO E-Disk Altima - 416GB worth of SSD goodness

In the next few years, you can bet that you're going to see solid-state disk drives showing up more in mid-range laptops rather than just in the more pricey ones. This is because capacities are going up, and prices are going down. BiTMICRO has just announced the world's largest SSD drive.

416GB sounds like a pretty random number as far as drive capacities go, but I'm sure you won't hear anyone complaining. BitMICRO has created this drive using high-density single level cell NAND flash memory to offer this large size. You can expect read/write speeds of 133MB/s and 100MB/s.

You can look for these to hit the market in March of 2008, no word yet on pricing.
