Samsung starts mass production of its first PCIe SSD for ultrabooks

has begun mass production of the first based PCI Express, and designed specifically for Ultrabooks. Rates promises to provide faster data transfer never before achieved.

Solid discs SSD (Solid State Drives) are becoming increasingly faster with each new generation. SATA interface is no longer able to provide the bandwidth necessary for the realization of the full potential of faster SSD. In short, the SATA interface is the bottleneck.

The new Samsung SSD series designed to XP941, makes use of faster bandwidth offered by PCI-Express, about 1.4 GB / s. That makes the new SSDs are almost 2.5 times faster than SATA-based counterparts.

Samsung will offer the SSD XP941 in three capacities: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. The new form format (80x22mm) classic SSDs makes them look huge in comparison. These discs weigh only six grams (about one ninth the weight of SATA SSDs).

We will not have to wait long to see a laptop with the new Slimline XP941 SSD from Samsung.
