toshiba_ssd.jpgToshiba today announced the introduction of the top-of-the-range dynabook SS RX2/WAJ, world’s first PC integrating 512GB SSD (Solid State Drive). The new, Toshiba-developed 512GB SSD employs a 2-bit-per-cell multi-level NAND flash memory to realize, the world’s largest capacity SSD, with four times the density of SSD integrated into currently available products. A new controller realizes high-speed parallel processing with the multi-level NAND flash memory boosts data access speeds by approximately 230% for read (max. 230MB per sec) and 450% for write (max.180MB per sec), compared with SSD integrated into current PCs. It also boosts data access speed by approx. 300% for read and 250% for write, compared to a hard disk drive.

The Toshiba dynabook SS RX2 is a mobile notebook PC created to the design concept of true mobility. Its light (approx.1,095g), thin (19.5mm to 25.5mm) design integrates capabilities essential for mobile notebook PCs, including long-time battery operation (12 hours) and a ruggedness that sailed through tests(6) by an independent certification organization. The Toshiba RX2 achieves an energy-saving design that cuts power consumption by adopting an ultra-low voltage CPU, a transreflective LCD that uses natural sunlight to make screen images more visible even without switching on the backlight. The new model is available in two versions from today at Toshiba’s on-line shop for the Japanese market.
