SSDs go mainstream with Intel's 320 lineup

Intel logoIntel is targeting mainstream consumers with its third-generation SSD (solid-state drive) lineup.

"The SSD 320 is the next generation of Intel's client product line for use on desktop and notebook PCs," explained Intel rep Pete Hazen.

 

"It is [aimed at] mainstream consumers, corporate IT or PC enthusiasts who would like a substantial performance boost over conventional mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs)."

According to Hazen, upgrading from a traditional HDD to an Intel SSD gives users one of the single-best performance boosts - as it offers up to a 66 percent gain in overall system responsiveness.

"SSDs [are] more rugged, uses less power and reduces the HDD bottleneck to speed PC processes [like] boot up and opening files or favorite applications.

"[Plus, our] third generation of SSDs adds enhanced data security features [28-bit Advanced Encryption Standard capabilities], power-loss management and data redundancy [that] advances SSD technology."

The Intel SSD 320 series is currently available in a wide-range of capacities, including 40GB, 80GB, 120GB, 160GB, 300GB and 600GB.

Additional specs include:

  • 3 gigabit-per-second (3gbps) SATA II interface.
  • 220 megabytes-per-second (MB/s) sequential writes.
39,500 input/output operations per second (IOPS) random reads.
  • 23,000 IOPS random writes on highest-capacity drives.
  • Throughputs at up to 270 MB/s sequential reads.
  • Up to a $100 price drop over current X25-M SSD models.
