"The upcoming RiDATA-brand SSD will come in two memory densities — 16GB and 32GB. Lin said a 64GB version is coming online this
year but the exact available date is not yet decided. Already sourcing NAND flash chips from Samsung Electronics, Lin said

This SSD will come in two sizes, 1.8- and 2.5-inch, and both ATA and IDE interfaces are supported. With leading memory
application makers such as SanDisk targeting NAND-based SSD to notebook OEM/ODMs, Lin said Ritek is offering its SSD to both
ODM vendors and channel customers. Ritek will focus on the same sales channel it uses in the optical disc/drive business."
