Intel plans 34nm SSDs in Q4

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Nothing really new till then


Currently Intel is manufacturing and selling its SSDs at 50nm, but the plan is to transition to 34nm. This should happen in Q4 2009 and MLC drives will get from current 160GB all the way to 320GB.

MLC is the slower of two memories, while SLC drives will get to 320GB in 2010. The X18-M series of 1.8 inch drives will get to 80GB, 160GB and finally 320GB but we still don’t know the price for these devices.

The same will work for 2.5 inch X25-M generation that will get to 320GB with 34nm. Flash memory is still a bit too expensive but the trend is that the prices are becoming more reasonable.
