Intel 510 SSDs due out in February

/ 8 years ago

In October last year there were a lot of rumours flying around about the possible specs of Intel’s third-gen SSDs. Now, thanks to Fudzilla, we can give you some updated information.

Supposedly, the new SSDs will be part of the codename ‘Emcrest’ family and will use Intel’s 34nm NAND. The 2.5 inch drives will convert to Intel 510 brand and will allegedly have read speeds of up to 450MB/s and write speeds of up to 300MB/s. To go with this, the drives promise up to 20K IOPs at 4KB read and 4K IOPs at 4KB write. It should also be noted that they will be SATA III 6Gb/s compatible.

The launch is planned for February with the Intel 510 250GB priced at $579 (about £450 inc VAT) and the Intel 510 120GB at $279 (about £215 inc VAT). To add some perspective, the X25-E which has 64GB storage, 250MB/s read speed and 170MB/s write speed, still sells at about $700 (about £540 inc VAT).

All of a sudden I’m feeling pretty excited, bring on February!
