Intel preparing SSD 335, 525 series

20nm flash for 335 SSD series


In addition to the recent price drop for its 320, 330 and 520 series SSDs, Intel is preparing a slight refresh scheduled to launch in Q3 and Q4 2012, according to the recently leaked roadmap at Chinese.VR-Zone.com.

The roadmap kicks off with a rather interesting entry-level 300 series that will apparently get a new 335 series update in Q3 2012. According to the roadmap, the 335 series will initially launch in 240GB capacity and get 80 and 180GB model update in Q1 2013. The new 335 series will most likely still be based on the same SF-2281 controller, be available in 2.5-inch form factor with the SATA 6Gbps interface, and will probably be paired up with a tweaked firmware and a new 20nm NAND flash memory.

The next in line is the 525 series, that will most likely stick with the same SF-2281 controller as the 520 series but might get additional performance via tweaked firmware as well. According to the report, the 525 series will apparently stick with 25nm NAND, rather than going with new 20nm one. Unlike the 335 series, the new 525 series will ship in mSATA form factor, although 2.5-inch versions are possible as well, but not detailed in the roadmap. The 525 series is scheduled for Q4 2012 and will be available in 30, 120, 180 and 240GB capacities.
