Intel slashes the cost of SSD

Written by Nick Farrell



New 330 could change the market


The pricing of Intel's upcoming 330 Series SSD could be the final nail in the coffin for traditional hard-drives. Online retailers have listed the Intel 330 SSD before Intel has officially unwrapped the budget solid state drive.

US retailers listed the 120GB version of the drive for $149 while Amazon UK is listing the same drive for £109.05 due for release on the 13th of April. There are cheaper SSDs out there, but few of them come close in terms of performance. The 330 Series combines a 25nm NAND flash memory process with SATA 6Gb/s interface support to deliver read speeds of 500 MB/s and write speeds of 450 MB/s.

But at £109 for a 120GB solid state drive it is the cheapest Intel-branded drive yet and mean that there will be discounting of other branded SSDs to clear inventory before the Intel drive appears.
