In 1977 - Micro Memory launched the MM-S100 - a non volatile RAM card for the Altair (S-100) bus which provided 8KB storage and cost $650.

It used magnetic core store but included all the interfaces needed to provide compatibility with Intel's 8080 microprocessor.

Strictly speaking (despite having no moving parts) the MM-S100 wasn't an SSD - because the memory wasn't implemented by semiconductors.
