RunCore Makes 1TB SATA 6 Gbps 3.5-inch SSD

We love the speed of SSDs, but the capacities sometimes aren't enough for those who are used to the spaces afforded by HDDs.

RunCore will soon release a 1TB SSD solution that's made for desktops, as it comes in a 3.5-inch form factor. Thanks to the extra size, the RunCore 3.5-inch SSD will pack in 1TB of very fast storage.

The RunCore 1TB drive will be made up of two distinct groups of flash memory, each with its own SandForce controller capable of delivering 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write. With the RAID between them, and anyone with this set up will be glad that there's SATA 6Gbps.

There's no pricing set yet, but expect to pay at least a dollar per gigabyte.

    You are having a giraffe, $1 per GB, with the way we get stung in the UK and EU that will equate to £1 per GB! I'll wait. I'll stick with the 4x 1.5TB disks in the array I have at the moment, it cost less than £300 and is more than fast enough with enough room for me too at 6TB.
