The above image, courtesy of Expreview, adds that Intel's 'Extreme' moniker will find a home with the X25-E, which as expected, boasts the highest performance figures.

 

The 'Mainstream' parts, go for low power consumption territory, with an impressive figure of 0.25W.

Two size options are in play too, ranging from 1.8" to 2.5" whilst capacity choices, will also be a bag of tricks. The X25-E, expected in Q4 2008, will offer 32 and 64 GB flavours, whilst a 160 GB X25-M 'Mainstream' part, will share centre stage at the same time.

 

Preceding this however, X25-M and X18-M 80GB options are expected in Q3, with a 160 GB X18-M coming in Q1 2009.

 

How far end-users may have to dig into their pockets is unknown, at the time of going to press but, SSD storage appears to be making some encouraging headway towards mainstream adoption.
