Intel Launches SSD

Arthur Cole

Intel formally took the wraps off its new enterprise-class solid state drive (SSD) in a bid to keep storage performance on par with its processors.

 

The X-25E is a Serial ATA (SATA) device aimed at servers, storage systems and workstations, according to MarketWatch. It utilizes a 50 nm single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory system said to break the bottleneck caused by traditional drives and lower energy and cooling costs to boot.

 

The initial version is a 32 GB device that delivers 35,000 IOPS random read and 3,300 random write performance, with 250/170 sequential read/write. The company built it on a 2.5-inch form factor, and loaded in a number of advanced technologies, such as native command queuing, low write amplification and advanced wear-leveling.

 

A 64 GB device is expected in the fourth quarter.
