RumorTT: Intel could soon let users overclock its SSDs

RumorTT: Could we be looking at a future of overclocking our... SSDs?

This news is quite interesting, especially for someone like myself who has been overclocking PCs since one of my first had a Turbo button on it, and my fondest memories of overclocking was from Intel's Celeron 300A processors.




But, now overclocking is very mainstream, and very easy. Motherboards, GPUs, memory, smartphones and oh-so-much more can be overclocked. Where is the next big overclocking world record going to come from? If Intel has its way, SSDs! Intel is poised to tease new ways to squeeze more performance from your SSDs at its upcoming Intel Developer Forum next month.


But, would it be 'overclocking' at all? I don't think we will, and I think a little reading between the lines needs to be done. But, could Intel soon unleash something that would allow you to squeeze another 5-10% out of your SSD? Even 5-10% on an SSD that is already bench pressing 500MB/sec+ is going to net you some pretty damn good improvements.


We'll see very soon, as the Intel Developer Forum kicks off in San Francisco, California, from September 10 to September 12 in the Moscone Convention Center.
