Micron has announced the launched of its RealSSD family of products which aim different categories of users.
Of particular interest are their Solid State Drives which are available in 1.8 and 2.5 inch format.
The SSD will be available in 32GB and 64GB sizes with a native SATA II interface and will consume less than 2w of power while active.
The RealSSD range is enclosed in a lightweight plastic casing although Micron will also release a caseless version aimed at ODM/OEM/Enthusiast market.
Micron is the latest entrant in the already crowded Solid State Drive segment.
SSDs are poised to capture the low capacity, high performance market with decreasing prices making it easier to adopt.
Anandtech and Custom PC have both tested SSDs from different vendors and came to the same conclusion.
Failing prices and increasing capacity will make them cheaper and Micron's introduction will build on that.
