Windows 7: Intel's 3rd Generation X25-M SSD Specs Revealed

Intel's 3rd Generation X25-M SSD Specs Revealed

Quote:
What's this? The long awaited specs for Intel's third generation SSD? Indeed.

Internally itís called the Postville Refresh (the X25-M G2 carried the Postville codename), but externally it carries the same X25-M brand weíve seen since 2008.

The new drive uses 25nm IMFT Flash, which means we should get roughly twice the capacity at the same price. While Intel is sampling 25nm MLC NAND today it's unclear whether or not we'll see drives available this year. I've heard that there's still a lot of tuning that needs to be done on the 25nm process before we get to production quality NAND. The third generation drives will be available somewhere in the Q4 2010 - Q1 2011 timeframe in capacities ranging from 40GB (X25-V) all the way up to 600GB.

Did a quick check but didn't see this thread

Thanks for moving it.

I just deleted it, as it was already posted



It's good to finially hear some news on the Intel G3s.

A little disappointed that they won't have 6Gbps, but with the posted speed they won't need it.

There was an article that said Intel was going to move towards a more affordable SSD with performance taking second place.

With the boost in 4k read/write performance from 35k/8.6k IOPS to 50k/40k IOPS and a X4 lifespan they may not be at the top of the performance list but if priced right they should be a very attractive upgrade.

I'm worried less about transfer speeds, and more about making this the ideal boot drive. I think intel understand's the need for speed, but also understands that until price drops, most SSD owners will have an SSD for the OS and a HDD for media storage, etc. Hopefully this G3 SSD will be an excellent boot drive.OS drive!

Thank you Airbot for the information. 600 gb SSD priced right and with longevity built in will sell the hotcakes as the old saying goes.

Early specs on Intel's third-generation SSDs were leaked thanks to AnandTech. Originally introduced in 2008, the X25-M G3 SSDs sport a 25nm IMFT Flash, which is expected to bring with it twice the capacity while retaining the same price levels. The drives are sampling now, but it's unclear whether they will be production ready in 2010.

Hopefully they drive down market price on lower capacity SSD

EDIT: I guess I am just not on the ball today, lol. **figured it out, I searched the hardware and chillout room boards, since this was not windows 7 specific**

Intel is reportedly coming out with a 300GB and 600GB SSD.

Haven't heard about a 400GB before, your link says "from 40GB to 600GB" which coincides with previous information.

I was reading a different article with 400GB in it somewhere... Let me see if I can track it down in my history. I linked to this one though, as it was longer.

-Nope, mis-read 40 as 400-
