Intel's X25-V to get double capacity (80GB) by Q4'10

and X25-M / E drives getting as big as 600GB

Intel's new X25-V series (V being short for Value) is much welcomed into the market as a very attractive option for entry level SSD buyers thanks to its lowly price tag, but the current 40GB capacity limit is a little too small for some.

However, word's about that Intel is planning an X25-V drive with twice the capacity which is said to be launched before Q4 2010 comes around.

 

The increased capacity also means it'll likely offer even better performance thanks to the use of more NAND flash chips. Pricing is expected to stay nice and low at roughly what the 40GB version costs now (around $100 USD), thanks to Intel's more efficient manufacturing process, likely around 28nm.
