Intel's SSD 330 series could tempt users with great pricing

Intel SSD 330 series could have some great pricing

Intel's upcoming mainstream consumer SSD line, the SSD 330 series, could have some great pricing according to a LaptopReviews report. Some online retailers have begun teasing with some listings of the new SSD series from Intel, where it will sport a SATA 6Gbps interface, and offer performance that actually takes advantage of the high-speed third-generation SATA spec.

The 120GB version of the SSD 330 was priced at US$149 on MacMall.com, but has since been removed. This gives Intel a huge selling point if the price is going to hit this point. The new SSD 330 series from Intel will be made available in 60, 120 and 180GB capacities. The 120 and 180GB drives will sport sequential transfer rates of 500MB/sec (read), and 450MB/sec (write). The 60GB drive offers 500MB/sec and 400MB/sec for read/write, respectively.

 

The new drives use IMFlash Technologies-made 25nm MLC NAND flash and offer the standard feature-set that includes TRIM, NCQ, 256-bit AES data encryption, and limited SMART attributes.
