Crucial announces m4 mSATA SSD – designed for Ultrabooks

Posted at 18 July 2012 17:38 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Crucial today announced the immediate availability of the Crucial m4 mSATA Solid State Drive (SSD), designed primarily for Ultrabooks.  According to Crucial the new SSDs deliver the same performance of a Crucial m4 SSD
but at one eight of the size due to the mSATA form factor. The new mSATA drives can be mounted to an mSATA-enabled motherboard. Crucial specifies sequential read speeds up to 500MB/s and the drive has validation for Intel Smart Response technology and Dataplex caching software from NVELO.

The drive will use Micron MLC NAND and likely the Micro C400 controller. According to the press release, the drive is designed and manufactured with the help of Micron. The drives are available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities with MSRPs of $52.99, $80.99, $121.99, and $225.99, respectively and come with a three year warranty.

    This means we need to have mSATA in addition to microSD and mini/micro HDMI external slots on smartphones.
