Toshiba upped the ante in SSD storage capacity by announcing the latest additions to its NAND flash SSD drive portfolio. Coming in at a whopping 512GB, its 2.5″ SSD is the current reigning champion in terms of sheer storage capacity. For those who don’t need or can’t afford such a large-sized and presumably hefty-priced drive, Toshiba is also offering its 2.5″ drives in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities. Notebook and netbook owners have not been left out in the cold as Toshiba is also producing 1.8″ drives and 1.8″ SSD flash modules in capacities of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. The drives promise to deliver a maximum sequential read speed of 240MBps and a maximum sequential write speed of 200MBps along with AES encryption. The new drives will be on display at CES 2009 with samples available from January to March 2009. Mass production and general consumer availability will not begin until April to June 2009.
