As 2x nm approaches


Intel’s first batch of SSD drives marketed as X25-M are scheduled to meet their maker in Q3 2010. This is the time when Intel plans to end of life of X25 M 50 nm drives in 80GB and 160GB capacities.

Both of these drives are MLC based and the 34nm version of these drives will keep living beyond Q3 2010. The plan to can 50nm drives is the natural thing to happen as Intel plans to introduce 2x nm drives in Q4 2010 that are most likely going to be much faster than the current 34nm and especially 50nm drives.

Postville, the 2x nanometer SLC drives will come in 160GB, 300GB and massive and impressive 600GB capacities and we can only hope that the pricing will also become more affordable.
