Intel SSDs to get SandForce

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Might even acquire them

Our sources close to Intel told us Intel has been considering using SandForce controllers for some of its high end SSD drives for quite some time now.

SandForce was a part of IDF showing its drives from AMP Inc., OCZ technology, Patriot Memory, SuperTalent & Unigen. Intel drives are still kept secret.

Intel sources even suggested that the chipmaker might acquire this smart little company, but we remember when we asked OCZ about acquisition of SandForce, they said that it was simply too expensive and that licensing makes more sense. So we don't believe that Intel will acquire this controller making manufacturer and that just as everyone else, it plans to use the controllers and make its drives much faster.

Intel has some state of the art MLC and SLC drives and with SandForce, it can make them even faster.
