Intel SSDs launch to evaluation fanfare

 

Not only has an 80 GB X25-M model taken its place on the launch pad today, but it has also got off to a highly acclaimed start, judging by some of the evaluations it has been subjected to.

 

The flavour which, is endowed with sustained Read/Write speeds of up to 250 MB/s and 70 MB/s respectively, received a coveted Editor's Choice award at HotHardware, who deemed its real-world write performance, as the fastest they've seen to date.

 

The Tech Report, on the other hand, found that whilst Intel's offering was exceptional at its best, the situation wasn't as impressive when stressing its slower write rate.

 

A Gold Award later from PC Perspective, the X25-M is deemed a success and it is expressed that Intel's SSD offerings are apparently causing waves amongst the company's competitors too.

 

Finally, the anticipated 160 GB offering is at the forefront of ExtremeTech's thoughts as the X25-M powers its way into the marketplace.

 

Intel is clearly set to re-ignite the SSD marketplace with its blazing portfolio and this, can only be good for end-users.
