90GB Flash Disks
« on: March 10, 2004, 04:20:54 PM »
The Inquirer reports that M-Systems have launched high speed flash disks, at both 40GB and 90GB. These are not (as you'll see from the price) aimed at the consumer market. Performance is claimed to be 100MB/s in burst mode and 40MB/s sustained.


More details here.

Darn,

I was hoping you were talking about flash memory cards (like for my digital camera).  I'd love to put a 90Gb card in my camera. (and I'd probably use it all too at 6 megapixels)

I want one, a 40GB one should hold my A4000 over VERY nicely!!

But I didn't see a price quoted there!
I guess if you have to ask, you can't afford it!!

My 512 MB M-Systems flash disk won't work with my desktop A1200 when my Blizzard 1260 is installed, even if the 1260 has been disabled. The power requirements on the drive itself are extremely low (lower than the 2.5" IDE drive I normally have installed), so I don't believe it's a power issue. The drive works perfectly well in an unexpanded A1200. D'oh!

They probably ARE military spec since there's no moving parts.
