Colossus 3.5-in SSD Combines Quad Controllers

November 22nd, 2009 11:12 admin

Vigile writes “The new Colossus SSD comes in capacities starting at 256GB and going all the way up to 1TB in a standard 3.5-in hard drive form factor. This larger size was required because the drive actually integrates not one but four Indilinx SSD controllers and three total RAID controllers in a nested RAID-0 array. All of this goodness combines to create an incredibly fast drive that beats most other options in terms of write speeds and is competitive in read tests as well. Using some custom ‘garbage collection’ firmware, the drive works around the fact that TRIM commands aren’t supported in RAID configurations to maintain high speeds through the life of the SSD.”
