Samsung has developed one of the largest-capacity and highest-speed solid state drives to date.

Samsung announced the development of a 2.5-inch, 256GB solid state drive (SSD) at the fifth annual Samsung Mobile Solution Forum in Taipei, Taiwan.

With a sequential read speed of 200 megabytes per second and sequential write speed of 160MBps, Samsung is claiming some of the fastest SSD data transfer rates to date.

Add that to the quiet operation of a SSD - no whirring platters - and you have a platform sizable enough to store a large virtual environment upon, along with a large number of media files to play to overcome the complete lack of sound in hard drive access.
