25nm Value SSD planned for Q4 2010
Intel Postville refresh
Intel has finally revealed that its next generation Postville refresh SSD drives are going to be based on 25nm MLC process. One of the attractive drives that should launch in Q4 2010 from this gang is the X25-V 80GB drive.
This will be Intel’s second value SSD mobile drive and it will succeed the 40GB X25-V 34nm Postville. Intel also plans a 40GB version of 25nm drive but this one should not be arriving before Q1 2011.
For some reason 1.8 inch 25nm drives in 160GB and 300GB will also get delayed to Q1 2011 and with their introduction Intel will retire the X18-M 34 and 50nm drives.
All in all the future of SSD in 2011 looks pretty 25nm.
