Intel 300 SSD family to get two new members

Written by Fuad Abazovic



In Q4 2012


Intel has just released its 330 series SSD hard drives powered with Sandforce controller and read/write speeds of up to 500MB/s and 450 MB/s. The original plan was to see these drives shipping in May, but Intel has decided to alter its launch schedule. These drives are 25nm MLC based and come in 60, 120 and 180GB capacities.

Before the end of the year Intel plans to release Jay Crest based 300 series drives, this time based on 20nm MLC. We don’t know much about their capacities but judging it is meant for entry level segment we expect to see 60GB and 120GB and probably at least one size larger. Naturally they are 2.5-inch and have support for SATA 6Gb/s.

This won’t be the only new SSD series. Intel plans to launch Oak Crest, based on 25nm MLC and supporting SATA 6Gb/s as well as mSATA. This is a successor of Intel’s 310 and 311 drives as well as recently launched mSATA 313 series that are currently stuck with SATA 3Gb/s.

The launch timeframe is Q4 2012.
