We’ve just learned that Intel plans to cut prices in its Solid State Disk lineup in a few days, on Sunday, April 26th. The cuts are expected to be anywhere from $50 to $100 compared to the current market rates as of now.
The 1.8-inch X18-M series will see some nice drops, with the 80GB model dipping from $385 to $335 and the 160GB model dropping from $760 to $660. Meanwhile, the 2.5-inch X25-M series will see the same cuts, with the 80GB model going from $385 to $335 and the 160GB model going from $760 to $660.
This is Intel’s second price cut on its SSDs in just two months time, following the first one in February. On another note, its SLC-based models will maintain the same unchanged pricing at $410 for the X25-E 32GB and $790 for the X25-E 64GB.
