It wasn't 2 hours ago that I received a call from DHL stating that they had received a rush package from Intel I might be interested in. It hasn't been 10 minutes since I tested the Intel 310 Series Mini PCIe SSD for the first time. The internets first tests (I think) can be seen in our Benchmarks Forums.
This is the worlds smallest SSD and, as seen below, its a pretty amazing feat when perched atop of the worlds fastest consumer SSD which posts speeds above 740MB/s. We were halfway through our review of the OCZ RevoDrive x2 100GB PCIe SSD when this delivery came about and couldn't resist this picture to show just how small the worlds smallest SSD is. I guess a big welcome is deserved for Intels newest release, the Intel 310 series 80GB Mini-PCIe SSD.
Stay tuned in the next few days for detailed reviews on both and don't forget to check out our forums for the Crystal performance benchmarks on this little baby! Its a pint sized X25m and then some!
