Intel and Hitachi Showcase New Enterprise SSDs at CES 2011

In November of last year, Intel and Hitachi announced that they had teamed up in an effort to battle SandForce and Toshiba in the SSD enterprise market, the first solid state disk to result from this collaboration just being showcased during CES 2011.

The resulting drive is called the Hitachi UltraStar SSD400S and is able to achieve read transfer rates of up to 535MB/s while running on a 6Gbit/s SAS interface.

In addition, write speed is rated at a maximum of 500MB/s, 4K random read IOPS are estimated at a maximum of 46,000 and 4K random write can reach up to 13,000 IOPS


A shipment schedule has not been provided but these should be expected sometime in late Q1 2011 or early Q2 2011, just in time to compete with SF-2000.

Together with these new enterprise drives, Intel also plans to release its third generation consumer SSDs in the first quarter of 2011.

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).
