Galaxy Releases 128 GB Thunder GT Pro SSD

Galaxy, a manufacturer mainly known for its graphics cards, has released an SSD called the Thunder GT 128 Pro. As the name indicates, comes with 128 GB.

It is a 2.5" drive that is packed with a SATA3 interface. The NAND is manufactured by Toshiba, as Toggle-NAND flash, and paired with a JMicron JMF667H controller. The amount of DRAM cache is unknown.

Read speeds go up to 480 MB/s and 70,000 IOPS, with writes at 300 MB/s and 58,000 IOPS.

Not much more is known about the drive, except that it will be available in China at the end of this month for a price of 元799. This, coincidentally, is equivalent to USD 128, giving Chinese customers an exact price of one USD per gigabyte.

    I wonder how well they expect to do? They are entering the market with an decent performance low capacity SSD that is considerably more expensive than the well known brands. I'm guessing they are not going to do that well.

    you used this character "元" in a wrong way. It suppose to be 799元 in Chinese or you want to use RMB?

    Underwhelming considering the competition offers better for about the same price, if not lower.

    799 Chinese Yuan equals roughly 128 US Dollar. Considering that the Samsung 840 has been sitting around $110 for a while and has gone as low as $80 on promotions, I was hoping for a better buy here...
