Flash memory is getting bigger and bigger these days. Patriot annouced a series of Solid State Drives (SSD) yesterday, with capacities ranging all the way up to 256GBs. SSDs offer extremely fast access times and higher reliability when compared to a normal hard drive, as there are no moving parts included in them. The drives are also silent. Patriot already showed a 128GB version on the CeBit (See OCCs coverage). The drives will be available in 2.5" notebook format, as well as the standard 3.5" desktop hard drive size.
