Seagate has finally joined the SSD club and unveiled the Pulsar, an SLC-based enterprise class drive.
The Pulsar is a 2.5-inch drive, it's 7mm thick and it will ship in three capacities ranging from 50GB, through 100GB to 200GB. While most SSD makers opt for 40GB and 160GB drives, Samsung took the road less traveled and added a few more chips in the mix. The drives are based on Samsung's chips and their capacity is, in fact, somewhat higher, but Samsung reserved 20 percent of it for redundancy.
"...we are working with Indilinx on a firmware update to address performance degradation experienced by some users when they updated to the 1819 firmware. We have been promised a version to test next week. Our testing process will take approximately two weeks. We will post back with updates as we get them.
For Mac users, please be assured that many of us are Mac users as well, it is important for us to find solutions. We continue to work with the controller manufacturer to develop solutions. We do not have anything specific right now.
