Walking the CES show floor you hear a lot of pitches as people try to lure you into their booth to gawk their products. Normally I’m immune to such things, but the siren call of a 1TB SSD drive was enough to pull a full 180 and see if pureSilicon’s claims were true. Sure enough, sitting in a glass display case was one of their Nitro Series solid state drives boasting 1 terabyte of storage. The drives come in an eye-catching and lightweight carbon-composite and aluminum bonded enclosure, and boast a transfer rate of 300MB/sec. (240MB/sec sustained read and 215MB/sec sustained write.)

The 2.5-inch nitro series are actually designed to be used in servers, data centers and record-breaking supercomputers, and should be available this year for an undisclosed gigantic pile of money.
