Today SanDisk has unveiled their newest line of Solid State Drives, the Extreme II, which features faster speeds and 19nm flash memory and proprietary high-performance tiered system architecture.  SanDisk promises that these new drives will offer quick game loads, enhanced gameplay and an improved user experience for anyone who works with big chunks of data.  Boasting sequential read/write speeds of 550MB/sec and 510MB/sec and up to 95,000 random read IOPS and 78,000 random write IOPS, all while coming in at reasonable prices.

The Extreme II SSD is available in three capacities: 120GB ($130), 240GB ($230) and 480GB ($440)

Perhaps a side-effect of this release, our 9to5Toys team is seeing all-time lows for current SanDisk products over at Amazon’s impressive 2 Day Gold Box Event and today’s 480GB SSD for just $300 deal.
