Lincoln Crest 20nm MLC SSDs from Intel

Written by Fuad Abazovic



In Q3 2012


Intel has just spread some details about the successor to 300 series SSDs told its partners that it plans to have these new drives ready for Q3 2012.

The codename is Lincoln Crest and these drives are based on 20nm MLC technology. Intel is not ready to disclose the capacity, but we expect a range from 40GB to at least 600GB. These are all 2.5-inch drives based on 20nm MLC technology and they should offer value-series speeds. They should support SATA 6Gb/s when they come out, as the planned release date is Q3 2012.

The second series of high performance SSDs are codenamed King Crest and they are based on 20nm NAND technology. They should replace Cherryville 25nm MLC drives that are starting to ship in this quarter, Q4 2011. The new King Crest drives are SATA 6Gb/s capable and are 2.5-inch high performance parts. We expect that they will end up with a 500-series brand, anything higher than 510 is the possible winning combination.

The current high performance 510 series are capable of 500MB/s read and 315MB/s write, and we expect that Kings crest will be able to do much better than that. King Crest is expected in Q2 2012, some two quarters after Cherryville launches in Q4 2011.

I wanna know when 20nm TLC will be going into phones and MP4 Players, struggling to find anything with 64GB that's not Apple

Come on now, the iPhone 4S 64GB is the only iPhone which can offer 64GB storage and it's not even available yet.

While there's a shortage of high-capacity phones the N9 also comes in a 64GB flavor and most Android handsets have a microSDHC slot that can add an additional 32GB - and swap it if need be.

I just bought a class 10, 32GB Samsung microSDHC card for ~37€ (including 25% VAT) so it's not as if storage is an unattainable dream.

ipod touch 64GB, I did say MP4 players aswell, there's the Creative Zen X-Fi 2 64GB model aswell but I had the 32GB model previously and I wasn't impressed with the video and animation smoothness
