No doubt, in future Solid State Drive (SSD) will fully occupy the place of traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) because of its durability, data transfer speed, power consumption etc. Differently we can realize the SSDs’ future when well known computer manufacturer is entering into the SSDs business. Recently, Taiwan-based electronics company MSI has officially entered into the SSDs business. InsideIndustryNews claims that they have an internal relation to MSI, and says that MSI is working to produce three solid state drives that are based on the SandForce SF-2281 processor.
MSI’s upcoming three models are the RX-60 (60GB), the RX-120 (120GB), and the RX-240 (240GB). These SSD are able to deliver bandwidth of 6 gigabits per second, according to the source.
