Intel Readies 400GB SSDs for Enterprise, 600GB SSDs for Mainstream
Intel Corp. is not historically known for its storage products, however, the company seems to be very aggressive in terms of capturing the market of solid-state drives (SSDs). By the end of the year the company plans to drastically boost capacities of its SSDs: the enterprise-class X25-E family will offer capacities up to 400GB, whereas the mainstream X25-M will provide up to whopping 600GB, according to sources familiar with Intelís plans.
Intel will update its enterprise-class lineup of solid-state drives with code-named Lyndonville family of products, which will offer capacities of 100GB, 200GB and 400GB and will either complement or replace currently available X25-E SSDs with 32GB and 64GB capacities. The Lyndonville family due in Q4 2010 will be based on multi-level cell (MLC) flash made using 34nm fabrication process; by contrast, currently available X25-E drives feature 50nm single-level cell flash memory, which is supposed to offer higher reliability.
