The South Korean manufacturer Mtron, a relatively new company, announced three new solid state drive products featuring MSD, MSD PRO and MSD XTM, that are fully optimized for consumer purposes, server applications and industrial purposes. The product lines feature 2.5/3.5 inch SATA SSD drives with capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Mtron will also introduce 1.8 inch form factor and 128GB capacity in the 4th quarter of the year in order to provide more efficient battery life and higher stability for notebook computers.
The company claims its drives can reach a read speed of 120MB/s and write speed of 90MB/s, along with 0.1 ms random access time. This means they are three to four times faster than existing magnetic hard drives and 30 to 40 percent faster than other SSD drives produced by companies like Samsung and San Disk.
The 16GB, 32GB and 64GB SSD drives will be available in later this month, but no pricing is available yet.

The 22 inch iZ3D gaming LCD monitor is an advanced video monitor capable of displaying impressive into-screen and out-of-screen 3D images with passive polarized glasses. This 3D gaming monitor is designed to replace the standard two-dimensional monitors while maintaining great image quality and display brightness while maintaining long-time viewing without causing fatigue or eyestrain. This advanced technology takes three dimensional applications already on today’s market, such as PC games, 3D entertainment and professional stereo applications, and it allows you to experience your favorite 3D animation in a way you never could with a standard two-dimensional (2D) monitor.
The new iZ3D monitor features the first S-3D drivers to be equally compatible with both the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series and the cutting-edge ATI FireGL V3600 workstation graphics accelerator. The S-3D drivers are also optimized to take advantage of Intel’s latest Core 2 Duo and Intel Core 2 Quad processor technologies. iZ3D also features drivers that support Microsoft DirectX 8 and 9 graphics in both Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista. Now the iZ3D drivers offer the compatibility benefits of S-3D with the best and fastest video graphics cards and processor power available.
Current PC’s equipped with a dual output video card will easily power the monitor. Smart capabilities allow it to be used for regular 2D office tasks as well as 3D viewing. Specifications include: 1680 x 1050 resolution; up to 170-degree viewing angle; 5 ms response time; 600:1 contrast ratio; and 16.7-million colors.
The 22″ IZ3D widescreen 3D monitors are currently available for $599.99.
