Micron on Thursday announced that its RealSSD C300 solid state drive is the first such drive to use the SATA 6Gbps interface specification.

The announcement comes two months after Seagate introduced the first SATA 6Gbps hard drive, the Barracuda XT.

The company says the drive offers read speeds of up to 355MB/sec and write speeds of up to 215MB/sec. It's also the first SSD to use ONFI 2.1 high-speed synchronous NAND, the company says.

The drives will be available in Q1 2010 in 1.8-in. and 2.5-in. sizes and 128GB and 256GB capacities.
