US memory maker Kingston has presented a new SSD family. The new SSDNow E50 is a cheaper version of the high-end SSDNow E100 devices and comes housed in a 2.5-inch chassis with overall thickness of 7 mm. As expected the new SSD family fully supports SATA 3.0.

The SSDNow E50 family consists of three drives with 100 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB of capacity; all three drives come with SandForce SF-2581 controllers. The 100 GB and 240 GB models reach 550 MB/sec of read speed and 530 MB/sec of write speed as well as 85 000 IOPS of random read and 80 000/73 000 IOPS of random write. The most spacious 480 GB model is a bit slower – it features 530 MB/sec of read speed and 500 MB/sec of write speed and 74 000 IOPS of random read and 36 000 IOPS of random write.
