Samsung’s solid-state drives boast 64MB/s read speeds and a write speed of 45MB/s – which definitely give it a boost in one day becoming an industry standard. Currently, conventional 1.8″ drives are around 15MB/s and 7MB/s respectively. Samsung’s 64GB SSD consists of 64 eight Gigabit single-level cell flash memory chips.

Samsung believes that by 2010, sales would have increased at a rapid 270 percent industry wide. The use of 2.5″ and 3.5″ SSDs in notebooks and desktop PCs are also expected to “gain a great deal of momentum” over the next three years.

Samsung is aggressively expanding market development efforts for its SSDs. Industry wide attention on ultra-light, ultra-slim notebook PCs with flash memory based SSDs reflects early market support for this new storage medium. In addition, Samsung has already introduced 32GB SSDs into ultra-mobile personal computers (UMPCs).
