Intel just got to 160GB with its X25-M series of SSD drives and it looks that the company wants to double the capacity by the end of the year.
The current 160GB X25-M is a 2.5 inch drive, meant for notebooks or high performance desktops and it is developed in 50nm technology. The successor that comes in Q4 2009 will be feature a 320GB capacity, and it comes in the 34nm process.
This confirms our news that we wrote about a month ago here, but it is interesting as Intel wants to drive X25-M series for its high performance notebooks. The big issue of SSD's is the ridiculous price of the devices as despite the speed, the price is simply over the top.
Intel plans 34nm SSDs in Q4
