Transcend Information, one of the leaders in all things memory related, has recently introduced its HSD740 half-slim SSD, which it claims is the fastest half-slim model around. Featuring a SATA 6Gbps connection, the HSD740 offers read speeds of 510MB/s and write speeds of 185MB/s. Those numbers are certainly quick, especially when you consider this SSD has dimensions of 54mm x 39mm x 4mm. It's an ideal size for Ultrabooks, Industrial PCs, game consoles, and even handheld devices. Transcend has packed the HSD740 with 40bit/1KB BCH hardware Error Correction Code and a "wear-leveling algorithm for long-term reliable data transfer," as well as TRIM and S.M.A.R.T. support, and Native Command Queuing to optimize the order read and write commands are executed.
The Transcend HSD740 is available in 32 and 64GB capacities, although a price and release date weren't mentioned.
