It looks like Intel finished 25nm flash production, and as a result, several popular products are getting the axe.

Affected products include the 313 Series, 520 Series, 525 Series and the enterprise 710 Series.

The Intel 710 was replaced by the new DC S3x00 Series, but the news leaves a big gap in Intel's consumer SSD lineup. The Intel 335 Series (2.5" Form Factor with 20nm flash) currently ships in 180GB and 240GB, no 480GB part is currently available.

The Intel 525 Series and 313 Series are mSATA products, 313 Series for cache and 525 Series for OS/storage. Intel's new NUC form factor needs an mSATA SSD, so we expect Intel to announce new mSATA products based on 20nm flash soon.
