128GB SSD Drive Suitable for Use in MacBook Air
Mtron has announced that they have developed a 128GB 1.8-inch solid state drive (SSD) with a ZIF-type interface, the drive is 100% compatible with the MacBook Air and will ship in April of this year.
Mtron’s new SSD with Single Level Cell (SLC) Flash memory supports PATA (ZIF-type) interface and has a maximum reading speed of 120MB/s and writing speed of 100MB/s, which is more than 6 times faster than the current 1.8 inch HDD. Therefore when it’s used in laptop PC and UMPC, it delivers much faster performance than desktop. Mtron also released 1.8 Inch SSD with Multi Level Cell (MLC) Flash memory, which provides maximum memory capacity of up to 128 GB along with a maximum reading speed of 110 MB/s and writing speed of 40MB/s.
It is unknown at this time whether Apple will add this drive to the MacBook Air build-to-order system but the drive will certainly be capable of adding to a MacBook Air.
Pricing for the drive is not currently available.
