New MacBook Airs may include high-speed 400MBps flash memory

The next generation MacBook Air may get a flash memory boost according to a report from Macotakara. The new NAND flash memory could replace the Blade X-Gale SSDs in the current generation MacBook Air models. This Toggle DDR 2.0 technology boasts of 400 MBps transfer rates and 19-nm processing. As a result, read times could reach 261 MBps and write times could be bumped up to 209 MBps. These small memory chips may be soldered on the MacBook Air’s base circuitry.

The new and improved MacBook Air models are expected to arrive soon after the debut of Mac OS X Lion. The Gold Master version of Lion was seeded to developers last week and should be publicly available in the upcoming weeks.
