Value solid state drive

 

Intel surprised us all with its announcement of three different versions of Solid state drives. Don’t get too excited as these drives won’t get that big. Intel plans to presents Z-U130 Value solid state drives with USB interface a 1, 2, 4 and 8 GB version.

 
Intel thinks that there is a market for these devices in Value PCs, routers, servers, gaming market and industrial applications. It can also use these devices for point of sale terminals. The company claims better performance and reliability and many of you might know that Intel has big NAND product groups and many factories that can produce such a device.

 
This small device should read at 28 MB per second and write at 20 MB per second rate. These drives are USB 2.0 and 1.1 compliant and 2x5 USB connector will make it easy to integrate such a drive in a design.

 
It looks small at least on picture but bear in mind that you can bug a 16 GB USB stick and do the same thing for quite some time. The company didn’t comment the pricing details.
