Default Intel X25-M G2 hits <$100: Kingston 40Gb V Series

Kingston today announced the release of the SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive, the latest addition to its V (Value) family of solid-state drives (SSD). The Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive is said to be one of the best and most cost-effective ways to accelerate any desktopís boot, shutdown and application load times. The best price of the drive is that it is available for as low as $84.99 after rebates (U.S. only) at e-tailer Newegg.com when it begins shipping on November 9, 2009.

The average write speed on the SSD was only 43.5MB/s, which is due to the fact that the drive has just five MLC Flash chips and isn't using all the controller's channels. This is very interesting! This benchmark was done on the brand new drive, so performance degradation is not an issue here and this is as good as it gets.
but random access performance is AWESOME; with 4k files it dominates:



put your OS and Apps on this 40gb disk and they will fly

and in general app usage this little $85 drive will certainly beat your old HDD

a pointless product, but it means the 320 GB Intel SSD will be sub 1000 $

I beg to disagree as well...

Any potential 320GB X25 would be $850-875, just crunch the cost per GB for the 80 and 160 models.

The G3 drives should be even better, those at least should come with SATA 6Gb/s support and another notch downward in NAND cost...
