Silicon Power Announces Ultra-Fast E20 SSD

Tuesday Silicon Power revealed a new 2.5-inch SATA SSD, the E20. The drive reportedly uses a proprietary technology that allows for read speeds up to 250 MB/s and write speeds up to 230 MB/s, surpassing similar SSD speeds on the market today.

Silicon Power's E20 offers a variety of features including built-in DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory, circuit current sensors, Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) support, and TRIM Command and Garbage Collection Technology support.

"With E20’s built-in DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory, even during continuous intensive-write situations, computers shall lag no more," the company said. "This feature not only enhances SSD’s read and write performances, it also extends SSD’s lifespan."

The new SSD will also utilize built-in ECC to guarantee data reliability, and use the company's "wear-leveling" technology to expand its lifespan. Other notable features include low power consumption, resistance to shock and vibrations, noiseless operation, no latency delay and no seek errors-- typical SSD benefits.

The E20 will arrive in four capacities: 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. Unfortunately, Silicon Power did not provide pricing or availability, so stay tuned.

    Didn't provide pricing because it'll be really high. The price per gb needs to come down to at least $1 per gb

    But the Revodrive is faster.

    Anyway, would have liked SP (Silicon Power) to have implemented an SF controller =P I won't mind though if they have price/gig lower than other competitors.

    Isn't there a PCIe SSD with read/write speeds close to 1GB/s?

    Is it just me or is ssd starting to get like apple news on Tom's when the ipad came out. Tom's does so many articles about them . I think there needs to be a no ssd site like a no apple site. :)

    This is what we need:
