Samsung Announces New Super-Fast Solid State Drives

It doesn't seem like all that long ago that SSDs were insanely expensive and ludicrously small. There's no word on what Samsung's newly announced SSD drives will cost, but they're certainly not small -- or slow. Akihabara News reports on the new drives, announced in Korea. They'll come as SATA 3 drives with capacities of either 256GB or 512GB and a claimed 520/MB/s sequential read speed and 400MB/s sequential write speed. Stupidly fast, in other words, which suggests to me that they might be just a touch on the expensive side. [Samsung via Akihabara News]
