Intel Announces SSD 510 with up to 500MB/sec Read Speed, 315 MB/sec Write Speed
Based on 34-nm NAND flash memory, the Intel SSD 510 Series delivers best-in-class sequential performance of up to 500MB/s sequential read speeds and 315 MB/s writes for its high-capacity model. The product is available now and comes in a 250GB capacity priced at $584 and a 120GB at $284, for 1,000 unit quantities.
If I can get a hold of one, I’ll see how it does in my severe duty test. But I’m putting my money on new Sandforce-based products, and so I’m eager to see what OWC will have to offer in its Mercury Extreme Pro line, which I have used extensively for a year now.
