510 Series SSDs are available in 120GB and 250GB capacities

We got a glimpse of what to expect with Intel's latest storage products last week when LaCie let it be known that its upcoming Little Big Disk features the new 510 Series SSDs. Today, Intel is making the announcement official

Instead of using an in-house controller, Intel's new 510 Series SSDs make use of a Marvell 88SS9174-BKK2 controller. As a result, the new 6Gbps SSDs offer read speeds of 500MB/sec and write speeds of up to 315MB/sec. 

"The Intel SSD 510 Series helps round out our SSD product line and was specifically designed for applications that require high sequential media transfers," said Pete Hazen, marketing director for Intel's NAND Solutions Group. "Whether it's a gamer wanting impeccable visual performance and faster game loading, or a performance-intensive workstation user, the new 6Gbps SATA SSD from Intel is not only significantly faster than the top 10,000 RPM gaming HDD, it's also faster than two RAIDed gaming HDDs."

The Intel 510 Series SSDs feature a 3-year warranty and come in capacities of 120GB and 250GB. The smaller SSD will set you back $284, while the larger one will run around $584.

Head on over to PC Perspective for a preview of the new SSDs.

So you don't think its a problem that you are paying for SSD performance, but you are not really receiving it? Random read and write performance is terrible for an SSD on Apple devices, and it needs to change.

I've had ZERO problems with either of my SSD's, perhaps because I'm not a fool and I don't use beta/just released firmware.

Use a stable tried and tested SSD and you most likely won't have any problems, its not like Apple is doing anything special.
