Intel confirms issue with new 34nm SSDs

Working on firmware fix

| Storage News | Posted: Jul 31, 2009 3:32 am

It seems like it was just yesterday that Intel announced there was a data corruption problem with the X25 SSD. Well I guess it is yesterday that it was announced. But it is not the one you are thinking of.

 

The first generation of SSDs had an issue where the drive would become fragmented and loose performance over time. This could also lead to data corruption in severe cases.

 

Now the issue is with the latest 34nm X25 SSDs. The problem is connected to a very small number of drives becoming corrupted when a BIOS password is used. Still to ensure that this does not become a major issue Intel has suspended shipments of the new drive and are working on a firmware fix for this problem.
