Intel to launch 600GB 25nm SSDs this year?

  1. Solid-state product launches seem to have let up from last year's onslaught, but don't think for one minute that companies aren't preparing the next wave. According to Fudzilla, Intel has "big plans" in store for the holiday season. Starting in the fourth quarter of this year, the company will introduce drives that are far more capacious than its current 160GB flagship.

    Even if this retails for a grand, it is still a step in the right direction

    Realistically speaking, at least for the next few years, a 100 - 200 GB SSD should be sufficient. If you keep all documents, downloads, etc on a regular hard drive, and only load the OS and programs, you really don't need a 600GB SSD. I'm sure its cool, but we're probably talking a few thousand.
  5. This is great news.

    it will bring down the pricse of the Gen2 drives and i can pick up another 160GB and go Raid 0 =)

    Hopefully intel will have Trim compatible Raid drives out by then.

    Then again if the refresh drives offer a much larger performance gap it might be easier to just sell my current hmm....

    The good news is every week some manufacturer releases information about a new SSD (larger, faster, smaller form factor, etc). This means a lot of energy is being put around these which will lower prices and improve specs, so that we may all use this technology sooner.
