Intel Unveils New Solid-State Drive 335 Series
October 30, 2012 9:31 AM
New SSD offers 240 GB of storage and promises a reasonable price.
Intel has rolled out a new line of solid-state drives to replace hard drives in computer systems. The new series is called the Intel SSD 335 Series and is aimed directly at the DIY consumer and entry-level enthusiasts. Intel promises that performance, quality, and price are hallmarks of this series.
Intel says that the SSD 335 Series uses the smallest and most efficient multi-level cell NAND flash on the market. This SSD is Intel's first to use 20nm NAND flash memory jointly developed by IBM/Technologies. The 64 Gb NAND uses a planner cell structure to overcome difficulties that accompany advanced process technology and enable better performance and reliability.
The fast memory inside this SSD allows the drive to have impressive performance with 4 kB reads of up to 42,000 IOPS and writes at up to 52,000 IOPS. The SSDs also promise sequential reads at up to 500 MB per second and sequential writes at 450MB/second. The SSD is only offered with a capacity of 240GB.
Intel uses a standard 2.5-inch form factor measuring 9.5 mm thick. The drive uses 6 Gb/s SATA connectivity is backed by a three-year limited warranty.
"The Intel SSD 335 uses Hi-K/metal gate planar cell technology, which overcomes NAND process scaling constraints to deliver the smallest-area NAND cell and die in the industry," said Rob Crooke, Intel vice president and general manager for the Intel Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Solutions Group.
"By pushing technology constraints and using process innovation, Intel can continue to progress SSD technology and pass along savings to our customers."
The drive is currently priced at around
$210 over at Newegg
