It’s finally here: a 6Gb/s mSATA SSD, rocking those highly coveted SandForce speeds. RunCore’s new T50 series offers maximum sequential reads of 550 MB/s and writes of 470 MB/s, with the help of SandForce’s SF-2281 controller (formerly relegated to the big boys). The little guy’s being marketed for high-end portables and offers 60GB for $198 or 120GB for $358. The outfit’s also touting the new I50 line, serving up more modest 280 MB/s reads and 270 MB/s writes based on SATA 3Gb/s. The I50’s targeted at tablets and laptops, and ranges from $178 for 60GB to $308 for 120GB. We’ll hold our final judgement for when we see these things hit the market in late July — until then, you can peep the full PR after the break.
