ADATA Pushes SSD Capacity to the Next Level With 512GB XPG
There’s potentially drool-worthy news out of CeBIT for solid-state drive buffs: ADATA has just unwrapped a half-a-terabyte SSD, the 512GB XPG. ADATA rates the performance at 230 MBps (read) and 160 MBps (write), which would be mighty impressive if the drive lives up to it in real-world testing. Pricing has yet to be announced, but considering the capacity we expect it to cost a pretty penny. ADATA is not the first company in the world to release a 512GB SSD nor is 512 the highest capacity available. In fact, pureSilicon has a 1TB SSD which ASUS releases put into its Lamborghini VX5. Nevertheless, this is yet another tiny nail in the coffin of magnetic media.
