Is Intel’s 522 Series ‘SandForce Driven’ SSD Next To Be Released?

This could be interesting.

Lets begin this article by conceding that it is abound with speculation and based upon much more balance of probability than concrete fact.
In fact, the closest we have come to confirmation is that all to familiar ‘echo of silence’ when we posed the question to “in the know” SSD industry associates, many of whom could have simply provided a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to our question. Has Intel and Sandforce teamed up to introduce a new Intel SSD?
Intel eventually followed through with the company standard release of, “No comment” and carried on to acknowledge that they will not comment on unreleased products.
The SSD Review believes that Intel is gearing up for yet another SATA 3 SSD announcement in the near future. This announcement has Intel and Sandforce joining hands to bring to market the Intel name along with Sandforces already famous SATA 3 SSD processors capable of parallel 500MB/s transfer speeds.


Intel officially released news of the much anticipated 510 series SSD on 28 Feb 11. This news was immediately overshadowed by word of reviewers having evaluated their pre-release samples only to find the new Marvell 9174 controller inside. This was a totally unexpected move by Intel, a company whose success in sales of the X25 series SSDs remains unequaled. While others were making their way through abundant reviews of the 510 series drive, The SSD Review was digging through the internet to figure out where this may have started.
