Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel outlines plans for solid-state drives - Intel outlines plans for solid-state drives
Tue, August 19 2008 | 5:21PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Today, Intel revealed the outlines of its plans to enter the market for flash-based solid-state drives by announcing a trio of new products and their basic specs. Two models, the X18-M and X25-M, will be available in 1.8" and 2.5" form factors, respectively, and will be targeted at consumer laptops and desktops. These drives are based on multi-level cell (or MLC) flash technology, and Intel plans to ship them in 80GB and 160GB flavors. The firm quotes read speeds of up to 250MB/s and write speeds up to 70MB/s, with read latencies at only 85 microseconds (or 0.085 milliseconds, in standard hard drive units). Active power use is rated at 150 mW, with 0.06 W typical draw at idle. The 80GB variants are in the sampling stage now and should be in production in the next month, with the 160GB version coming in early 2009.
