Default Intel preps $45 SSD

WITH MOST OF THE market looking onwards towards the newly-released platforms like Intel’s Atom, Nvidia’s Tegra and Via’s Nano – details on supporting hardware have been scarce.

Scarce, that is, until Intel announced its Z-P230 PATA drives, for the UMPC and MID market (although theoretically it could also target CE). PATA as it may be, the Z-P230 comes in 4GB and 8GB flavours (with 16GB to follow by the end of the year) and pricing will be an amazingly low $25 ($6.25 per Gig) and $45 ($5.625 per Gig), respectively. Adding as little as 10g to the device that will support it (basically anything with a PATA interface and 1.8-inch connector), the Z-P230 draws just 1.65mW at idle (if there is such a thing in SSD) and 314mW whilst active. Performance may be nothing special, or just enough to run some whacky OS and help get you through a work day, with a 35MB/s sustained sequential read and 7MB/s sustained sequential write speed.
