Transcend releases new breed of IDE SSDs

Just a few months after the first SSDs with IDE interface hit the market, the company that created them – Transcend – is ready to release a successor.

The Transcend PSD320 IDE SSD will now be succeeded by the PSD520 model that reads data at 119 MB/sec and writes at 102 MB/sec. Transcend believes that there’s still room for improvement as the latest and fastest IDE standard – ATA133 – is capable of reading and writing at 133 MB/sec so there’s a chance we will soon see an even faster IDE SSD by the same company.

Transcend PSD520 SSD

The fancy IDE SSDs target owners of PCs, which do not support the latest SATA standard (or do not have enough free SATA ports) yet they are powerful enough to do simple computing such as writing e-mail messages, editing text, watching movies, using IM clients and playing older games. Such computers will greatly benefit from SSD drives, Transcend says.

The Transcend PSD520 SSDs are based on single-level cell NAND flash memory but pricing and capacities are unknown.
