Intel has joined with Micron to form IMFT (Intel-Micron JV) to manufacture 25nm NAND Flash memory chips for the new SSDs. Dubbed the “G3” SSDs, Intel is preparing to release three X25-M models
available in 160Gb, 300b & 600Gb capacities, and one 80Gb X25-V in
late 2010 and early 2011. The new SSDs are eco-friendly and feature a
SATA II interface, S.M.A.R.T., Windows 7 TRIM command, and a new
controller that purportedly supports higher data transfer rates (than
their predecessors). Pricing has not been announced yet so stay tuned for
more updates!
