Intel Preps Screaming-Fast 25nm SSDs

Intel once blazed a trail into the high-end SSD arena with its X25 series, and while the Santa Clara chip maker's X25-E is no slouch wtih read and write speeds of 250MB/s and 170MB/s, respectively, those are no longer best-in-class numbers.

Don't count Intel out, however. After completing the transition to 25nm NAND flash wafers in a joint effort with Micron, Intel is reportedly making new SSDs based on the die shrink. Codenamed Lyndonville, these upcoming SSDs are expected to run faster than anything currently in Intel's stable.

will likely be aimed at the enterprise market. Capacities are expected to come in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB when they launch in the first quarter of 2011, though no decision has yet been made on pricing.

And the biggest advantage to the SSD drives, is their instantaneous access to things moreso then they sequential read and write performance. So I would still recommend to anybody thinking about what would make their best upgrade to invest in an SSD at this point rather than holding off for the next best thing. And consumer SSD's are expensive enough for most people without being the enterprise class products being discussed here.

Intel SSDs - Configured for Intel CPUs or Excellent with AMDs too?
Hi all Yes, that's about it really... Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel. So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too? I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).
