Intel announces 313 series compact SSDs

Intel has unveiled its new 313 series solid state drives that aim to optimize Ultrabook responsiveness with the Intel SSD 313 Series caching solution. It also features Intel Smart Response Technology and Rapid Storage Technology. The Intel Smart Response Technology enhances storage I/O caching by moving frequently used blocks of disk information to an SSD, providing dramatically faster access to user data than the hard disk alone can provide. The end result:  your PC can take full advantage of the hard drive capacity and receive a boost in boot times and application launches for faster overall system responsiveness, similar to that of an SSD-only system. And because SSDs reduce spinning up of your hard drive, the Intel SSD 313 Series delivers high performance with low power consumption. This means longer battery life without sacrificing performance. It’s also Ultrabook ready.


The SSD is optimized for Intel Rapid Start Technology and Intel Smart Connect Technology, and meets or exceeds the Ultrabook Responsiveness Requirements. By combining an Intel SSD 313 Series and Intel Rapid Start Technology, your computer can provide an “instant on” experience—enabling your PC to resume from hibernate mode at super speed.

The Intel SSD 313 Series significantly reduces wait time for your e-mail and cloud contents to sync with your computer. With Intel Smart Connect in action, your system wakes up at a pre-configured interval for a brief period to refresh your e-mail and other cloud contents. The Intel SSD 313 Series utilizes the highest grade Intel 25 nanometer (nm) Single Level Cell (SLC) Compute NAND, which is the underlying technology behind the high performance and offers more than 10 times the endurance over Multi Level Cell (MLC) NAND. This means an SSD cache with faster performance and longer life. With Native Command Queuing that enables up to 32 concurrent operations and proven Intel architecture; the Intel SSD 313 Series drastically outperforms traditional hard disk drives.


Pricing and availability for the Indian sub-region hasn’t been disclosed, yet, but we can be rest assured that these drives are going to be seen pretty soon enough in the upcoming range of Ultrabooks.
