Toshiba crowns itself king of the hill with a 512 GB SSD

Toshiba is firing the next salvo in the Solid State War with a drive that's an impressive 512 GB large. As it pretty much always is in the wild world of tech, that's double the size of the last SSD we got all gaga about. Toshiba will have SSDs ranging in sizes from 64 GB, 128 GB to 256 GB to show off at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, as well as its big 512 gigger — the last of which should go into full production later next year.

Even if you don't want to shell out the cash for a 512 GB solid state drive, the never-ceasing march of companies like Toshiba and Intel to create bigger and faster drives mean that the lesser-sized drives left in the wake will hit the shelves cheaper, and that's always a good thing.
