Called TeraNova, this new range of discs to memory NAND flash displays the correct performance, but the prices seem a little too high to compete with the market heavyweights.
The new range of SSD TeraNova arrives, produced by SuperTalent. Stored in the server category, specific manufacturer on the product page that its new TeraNova drives have two technologies called RAISE and DuraWrite for better performance and better durability with low amplification when writing data. Of course, they are accompanied by other more conventional technologies that controller SandForce SF-2281 offers such as Wear Leveling, system control and correction of ECC error on 24 bits to 512 bytes.
Unsurprisingly, the TeraNova have chips in MLC but without more precision on the type of bullet and the chosen manufacturer. In terms of raw performance, Super Talent displays only the sequential reads up to 540 MB/s and sequential writes up to 480 MB/s to 480 GB version and 520 MB/s for the 240 GB version. To ensure such theoretical flow, the TeraNova have SATA III bus and offer a lifetime of more than 2 million hours.
The TeraNova will be available soon in version 60 GB for $ 109 while passing through a 120 GB version and 240 GB on the largest size available 480 GB showing a rate reaching highs at $ 920. Not sure as to such tariff, these new flash drives are their public.
