    Western Digital and SanDisk just unveiled a few new SSD and they use 64-layer 3D NAND memory. The WD drives come in 2.5″/7mm & m.2 2280 form factors and the SanDisk only comes in 2.5″ form factor.

    These SSDs are available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB and the Pricing begins from $100. All these SSDs are based on Marvell controller and they can provide you with up to 560MB/s read and 550MB/s write speeds. Although you won’t be getting these speeds with the 250GB model, you will need to buy the ones with more storage for better speeds.


    We know that the 250GB version costs $100 but the pricing for the higher storage versions are still unknown. These new drives have a 3-years warranty and are rated at 1.75 million hours MTBF. They will be available from third quarter this year.
