Solid State Disk Drives Offer New Performance

Phoenix, Arizona December 18, 2008 - Solid state disk drives, or SSDs as they are commonly referred, are an emerging product that brings a new dimension to the PC market. While there are many possible end-product applications for the SSD, the PC market is one where the benefits of the SSD are readily applied. This is particularly true for the mobile PC market where the 4 year CAGR for the SSD in notebook PCs is forecasted to be 89%.

The consumer acceptance level of SSDs in PCs will be very high. “The performance benefits of SSDs in PCs will be driven by early adopters of the business traveler and gamers,” states Jim Feldhan, Semico President. “The power savings and ruggedness of the SSDs in comparison with HDD, or hard disk drives, are very attractive to the business traveler. The reduced latency of a SSD versus a HDD is the key attribute sought by the gaming market. By 2012, the SSD market for desktop and notebook computers is forecasted by Semico to exceed $10 billion. It is an extremely attractive market.”

An analysis of the SSD market for PCs and an analysis of those companies that manufacture and assemble NAND Flash and SSDs can be found in Semico’s Solid State Disk Drives and the PC Market: SDDs Offer New Performance report.
