  1. Intel has launched a new ultra-tiny solid-state drive series that practically matches the performance of its 2.5-inch drives in a fraction of the footprint. The company's new 310 SSD series measures only 51 x 30 x 5mm and weighs less than 10 grams. Despite their compact size, the new drives offers peak sustained reads and writes of 200MB/s and 70MB/s, which isn't far behind the 2.5-inch 80GB X25-M's read/write rates of 250MB/s and 70MB/s.

    How about they start making cheaper SSD's and they stop doing micro crap that needs adapters for my Desktop?

    price of the new offering versus current price of "stand-alone 2.5" SSDs"?
  4. "price of the new offering versus current price of "stand-alone 2.5" SSDs"? "

    Didn't read it did you?

    "Naturally, Intel is targeting manufacturers of mobile systems, so the new drives won't be available as a stand-alone retail product."

    What prices they'll offer manufacturers, who knows and its fairly irrelevant. They'll charge whatever they think they can get away with by the time it comes to the consumer.

    SSDs are too high priced and have too low capacity space for a high read/write speed. They are not feasible to buy until now. Moreover an SSD might have bottlenecks such as the transfer speed of USB 2.0 which needs to be USB 3.0 for a speed bump.
