The 10 Coolest SSDs Of 2012 (So Far)


SK Hynix: Newcomer To The Client SSD Market

Korea-based memory chip developer SK Hynix in June launched its first client SSD, a 2.5-inch model in 128-GB and 256-GB capacities. The SSDs include a 6-Gb-per-second SATA controller, and they provide sequential read speeds of up to 510 MB per second and sequential write speeds of 470 MB per second.

Also included is 128-bit AES encryption to secure the data.

Prior to the launch of the new client SSDs, SK Hynix had been providing mini-SATA (mSATA) SSDs to PC OEMs since late 2011.
