Raising one’s head and looking and substituting X25-M solid condition hard disk with third of Intel that wishes will release soon, Intel is called ” Postville Refresh ” the research and development coaxiality of X25- M G2 ,He has inherited the appearance of X25-M series products since 2008. Adopt IMFT flashing memory chip of 25 nanometers of craft processes, this means realizing the memory capacity of turning over time at same price. Though Intel 25 the intersection of MLC NAND and flashing memory kind produces, seen SSD driver yet so far. It is said before producing NAND in batches, there are a lot relevant process craft of 25 nanometers to need adjusting. The third generation driver would emerge in the first quarter of 2011, all serial capacity are from 40GB X25-V To 600GB.
Though Intel calls listing X25 – M new to only support SATA 3Gbps standard, its internal SATA norm staging reaches ATA8-ACS of standing, perhaps after Intel chip set offer primary SATA 6Gbps to support, SATA 6Gbps official side that Intel will open the own solid condition hard disk supports.
Characteristics and specifications of the new drivers are all greatly improved. The comparison between the two is as follows:
If accurate parameter these, X25-M G3 should in the same horizon by beautiful mere Crucial RealSSD C300 or SandForce SF-1200 scheme. Certainly will also a lot of different routes will be tested, so the test data float. Please note, because is still carrying on much adjustment at present, the characteristic may be known and improved when it emerges. Have to say that looks at the present characteristic level, the pricing of Intel can preferably have advantages even more, because I drive and full of more expectation SandForce of future generation.
