Sandisk punts next gen SSD

Sandisk has unveiled the next generation of Solid State Drives (SSDs) aimed at the phenomenally successful netbook market.

Available in 8, 16, 32 and 64GB flavours, Sandisk's new pSSD drives feature SATA interfaces that allow them to be used as drop-in replacements for standard rotational HDDs.

According to Sandisk, the technology on which the Second Generation Modular SSDs is based uses a patented All Bit Line (ABL) architecture with advanced proprietary programming algorithms and multi-level data storage management schemes to yield MLC NAND flash memory chips that don't sacrifice performance or reliability.

The new drives are currently being built in Japan by a partnership between Sandisk and Toshiba, and they should be out in the wild by February.

No prices are available at time of writing, but Sandisk marketeers tell us that they will be 'aggressivley priced' whatever that means.
