Silicon Power's 256 GB SSD Released

This morning Silicon Power said that it plans to release a 256 GB version of its 2.5-inch SATA II SSD.

Building upon the original 128 GB version previously released, the new 256 GB 2.5-inch SATA II SSD (solid state disk) will not only feature a larger capacity, but read speeds of 165 MB/sec. and write speeds of 98MB/sec. Unfortunately, the drive utilizes a Jmicron JMF602 controller, which is terrible with SSDs, unless it ships with revision B of the same chip. We're waiting for confirmation from Silicon Power on which revision its drive uses.

According to the company:

"Customers can easily install the SSD in laptops, PCs or other devices that support SATA II SSD," said the company in a press release. "Silicon Power 2.5” SSD with SATA II or IDE interface is fully compatible with RoHS requirement, with capacities ranging from 8GB to 256GB."

Silicon Power did not specify a release date or price, but the 128 GB version costs around $360.00
