Intel to launch speedy 510 series SSDs on March 1?

Quote:
Folks looking to treat themselves to a new SSD may want delay the upgrade for a couple of weeks. VR-Zone reports that Intel plans to launch its new 510 series SSDs less than two weeks from now on March 1. Codenamed "Elm Crest," the drives will mark Intel's first to utilize the latest SATA III (6Gb/s) interface, which we've seen on competing products such as Crucial's RealSSD C300.

The 510 series will use the same 34nm NAND MLC flash chips as the second-gen X-25M and will debut in two capacities: 120GB and 250GB.

I sure hope that it's not only the larger volumes that have the faster speeds.

Yeah, until they get to at least 1 TB in size and relatively cheap, I won't be interested in one for more than the OS--maybe 80 GB.

It's always a matter of cost. Right now, it's too prohibitive to use them for storage. And for things like music files and what not, I don't need to be able to read and write them super fast. As long as my player reads it fast enough to not skip in playback then all is well.

I think I will stick with my 160SSD until 500GB or above is announced. Wonder how much faster theses will be on SATA III.

I want one but it's a lot of money, I've got an 80GB Intel SSD, thinking of using it in combination with my 500GB HDD.

Feel lucky, I paid over $800 for my first 30 MEGABYTE hard disk.
Just paid almost $500 for a 256gig SSD from Crucial.. and happy to pay.

Curiosity question. Why must it be SATA III for the new SSD's? What about all the SATA II machines out there?

Hello John,

Not to worry, SATA III drives are backwards compatible and will work just as well connected to SATA II ports. It just will not be able to reach it's full transfer rates unless connected to a SATA III port. That's all.

Everyone is wanting SATA III to be able to have faster transfer rates with SSDs that can actually transfer faster than SATA II rate limits.

Serial ATA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Lots of new ones coming out.

OCZ Vertex 3
Crucial C400
Intel 510

Finally a need for SATA III 6Gbs interface.

I love competition.

Who's next?
