Toshiba rolls out first 512GB notebook SSD

Toshiba late Wednesday said it has set a record for flash storage with the first-ever 2.5-inch 512GB solid-state drive. It makes use of the company's newest 43 nanometer assembly process and particularly dense multi-level cell storage to double the 256GB record only just set earlier this year. The capacity boost also comes alongside faster performance; Toshiba sees peak read speeds of 240MB per second and write speeds of 200MB per second. Longevity is also a focus with about one million hours (114 years) between failures thanks to reduced wear on potentially short-lived memory cells.
AES encryption is also an option to lock down the drive, which plugs into a typical SATA notebook drive bay.

The range-topping drive also comes alongside physically smaller 1.8-inch drives that take advantage of the new memory inside ultraportable notebooks and include 64GB, 128GB and 256GB versions. All of the drives will be ready to test for PC makers sometime during winter 2009 and should be mass-produced for shipping systems during the spring.
