SanDisk comes up with ULLtraDIMM solid-state drives

SanDisk, which is a renowned manufacturer of NAND flash-based solid state drives, has announced the availability of its ULLtraDIMM solid-state drives that come in DDR3 DIMM form factor. These drives promise to deliver extremely low latency and improved performance across the table.

The SanDisk ULLtraDIMM SSDs are available in capacities of 200 GB and 400 GB and come with MLC NAND flash memory on 19 nm tech process. The really interesting thing about it is that it is placed in a regular DDR3 memory slot and thus provides almost immediate data access to the system processor. This ensures excellent performance and lightning fast latency but in case this is not enough you can add a new ULLtraDIMM drive, given you have empty DDR3 memory slots on your motherboard.

The new SSDs will be used by IBM at first and a bit later they will come to regular markets. Pricing was not announced, however.
