Micron Technology has unveiled its new RealSSD C400 SSD series for the fast growing flash-based notebook market.

The new portfolio is the first SSD product line to incorporate Micron's 25nm NAND flash technology, creating a broad portfolio of capacities ranging from 64-gigabyte (GB) to 512GB, the company said. The drives will be available in 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch form factors.

As with its predecessor, the product line also supports the SATA 6Gb/s interface, which opens up the data path between the host processor and the SSD delivering improved overall system responsiveness including faster boot times and speedier application loads. It delivers read speeds up to 415 megabytes (MB)/second, which is 17% faster than Micron's previous generation drives. With write performance varying by capacity, the new 512GB drive achieves up to 260 MB/second write speeds, which is more than 20% faster than the fastest C300 drive.

Micron is currently working with notebook manufacturers to qualify its new RealSSD drives under the C400 product name. With samples of the RealSSD C400 drives available now, Micron expects mass production to begin in February.
