Intel has released a firmware update for the X18-M and X25-M solid state drives.


Intel Updates SSD Firmware


Not only does the update include serveral continuous improvements but it also has a fix for the performance issue that PC Perspective uncovered earlier this year. For those unfamiliar with the issue, it was shown that Intel's SSD's could experience severe performance degridation after extended periods of use.


The new update brings the firmware up to v1.1 and can be downloaded from here.


This update implements several continuous improvements and optimizations to the drive algorithms including a resolution for a performance issue first reported by the PC Perspective review website. Keep in mind that the risk of a typical PC user experiencing this issue is very low. We are offering this firmware download to our OEM customers and any consumers who have purchased the drives. Consumers with questions can contact their PC maker or visit Intel support at for more information.
