Micron Crucial RealSSD-C300 Solid State Drive brings on the SATA 6Gbps support

SATA 6Gbps support is one of those features enthusiasts have been clamoring for yet its shelf life is likely to be quite short. Storage interfaces rarely meet their full potential before another faster standard is released, thankfully at least one company is pushing their products into using SATA 600 before it goes away completely.

The Micron Crucial RealSSD-C300 SSD is one of the first solid state drives to support SATA 600 and offers speeds above those limited by the SATA 300 interface. Benchmark Reviews has a look:

The Crucial RealSSD-C300 offered up to 383/227 MBps read and writes speeds in ATTO Disk Benchmark trailed by 363/226 MBps in Crystal DiskMark, while Everest reported a 332/215 MBps linear bandwidth speed. Input/Output performance was modest in Iometer and HD-Tune, indicating that the MTFDDAC256MAG-1G1 model would perform extremely well for enthusiast consumers but not offer the high operational functionality needed in the Enterprise server sector.

An extremely fast drive when paired up with the faster interface. Hopefully more manufacturers take the lead.
