Intel SSDs part of Centrino 2 platform

160GB by the end of 2008

According to a report written by the Taiwanese Digitimes website, Intel is planning to bundle Solid State Drives as part of its Centrino 2 mobile platform by the end of the end of September this year.

 


Intel has supposedly named the product line "Intel High Performance SSD" and should target enterprise, mid-range and high-end notebook products.

 

If the report is accurate, there will be two versions - Client X25-M and Client X18-M. X25 will have a physical size of 2.5-inch and X18 a physical size of 1.8-inch with both being 80GB SATA.

 

The report goes on to say that Intel will release a 160GB SSD by the end of 2008 followed up with 250GB and above in 2009. These seems like very bold claims since currently a 64GB SATA SSD drive will set you back over $1000 USD.

 

It will be interesting to see if Intel can make this happen and what tricks they have under their hat to reduce costs in SSD technology.
