The new solid state drives Intel SSD 530 will hit the market next week, confirming that chip giant bet for this type of devices that aspire to become storage standard, at least on laptops.
The Intel SSD 530 arrive after the launch of the SSD 335, sharing new NAND flash memories fabricated in 20-nanometer process, the LSI-SandForce SF-2281 and SATA 6 Gbps interface.
The SSD 530 will have greater scope as will be offered in three formats, standard 7mm 2.5-inch, mSATA and NGFF M2. Variants would be available with 80GB, 180GB, and 360GB to 240GB mSATA and NGFF units M2, while added 2.5 inch model has 480 Gbytes storage capacity.
The Intel SSD 530 will replace the 520 and 525 series of 25 nanometers that will be discontinued in October. No official figures are available but must be hovering performance of 500 Mbytes per second in read / write mode.
The price of Intel SSD 530 would be lesser than 1USD per 1GB, but still more expensive than hard drives, perhaps the only aspect also limits the extent of these solid state drives. This was all about one of the fastest available SSD from Intel, stay tuned for complete review, happy toipoing.
