Mtron XTM 7500Today the common speed that SSDs operate at is 130MB/s for read and 120MB/s for write speed. This is significantly faster than traditional hard drives can match, even when spinning at 10000 RPM. Eventually the SSD will replace the traditional hard drive, but right now the hard drive still reigns supreme.

Mtron has announced a new controller technology for SSDs that will make the SSD even more appealing to enterprise customers. The new controller tech uses 8-channels rather than the 4 used today. Mtron says the new controller technology will allow for read speeds of 260MB/s and write speeds of 240MB/s. Drives based on the new controller technology are expected in early 2009.
