Intel plans 34nm 320GB SSDs in Q4

Written by Jon Worrel

Low-density, cost effective


Last month, Intel released its first solid state disk drives, the 2.5-inch 80GB and 160GB X25-M, and has just recently released the 1.8-inch 80GB and 160GB X18-M ultraportable counterparts, all of which are based on 50nm multi-level cell NAND flash technology.

In Q4 this year, the company plans to release a 320GB SSD in Extreme and Mainstream variants, which will most likely come in both 2.5-inch and 1.8-inch form factors.  Moreover, the new drives will make use of 34nm 32Gbit low density MLC NAND flash, which is being developed by IM Flash Technologies (IMFT).

On the other hand, those looking for more storage even earlier can pick up a 512GB Toshiba SSD based on 43nm 16Gbit MLC NAND flash technology next quarter for just $1,652.
