ATP SSD connect to the USB header on your motherboad


This is brilliant. I’m not 100% sure what the practical application is yet, but I think I want one. ATP built an SLC NAND-based solid state drive designed to plug directly into the USB header on your motherboard. Great idea right?


ATPs product doesn’t have a huge storage capacity, so I’m not sure what you’d use it for, but the idea has promise. The drive is only available in capacities of 512mb to 4GB, but the transfer speeds are up to 30 Mb/s, and you could boot from it. No word on how much it’s going to cost, but according to ATPs website you should be able to
buy it at Wal-Mart and Target.
