They began to know further details about the plans of Intel Corporation in the market of solid-state drives. According to data derived from the roadmap Intel, the company plans to release in the fourth quarter of next year, SSD, built at 2x nm chip memory with multilevel cell (MLC) and have a much greater capacity.

Current Issue current SSD drives X25-M, built on 34-nm MLC chips, as well as flash drives X18-M, established standards for 50-nm process technology, will be discontinued in the third quarter of 2010. They must be replaced with generation of Postville Refresh, includes a model with a capacity of 160, 300 and 600 GB.

Moreover, the data SSD will be built on MLC chips created by the rules finer 2x nm technology. Meanwhile, Intel plans to update and its series of X-25 E, presenting it in the fourth quarter of 2010 the new solution, codenamed Lyndonville. These devices are expected, will replace the model X25-E on 32 and 64 GB, are now among the fastest SSD drives.

New solid-state drives Lyndonville must leave in three versions with a capacity of 100, 200 and 400 GB. At the same time, they will be built on 34 nm MLC chips, whereas the existing models X25-E using 40 nm memory chips with a one-level cell (SLC). Finally, Intel plans to update and in the line of their entry-level SSD. Slots in the series X25-V, as well as the older model, replacing the end of 2010 the production technology and will be issued on the basis of 2x-nm NAND flash memory, which allows them to bring capacity up to 80 GB.
