Intel’s quest to speed up data transfers has resulted in the launch of a new lineup of Solid State Drives, this time infused with more speed.
The SSD 510 models are based on a 34nm process NAND flash memory and boast of fast SATA3 6Gbps performance, read speeds of up to 500MBps and 315MBps write speeds, which Intel said is twice as fast as its current solid state disk drives.
From a gaming buff to a workstation user, the zipping speed is a treat for all. In an interview with The Inquirer, Pete Hazen, director of marketing for Intel's NAND solutions group stated that, "The Intel SSD 510 Series helps round out our SSD product line and was specifically designed for applications that require high sequential media transfers," said Pete Hazen, director of marketing for Intel's NAND solutions group. The drives have hit the stores and come in 250 GB and 120 GB capacities.
According to Intel, the unmatchable speed offered by these drives is currently the best that’s available in the market.
