Intel announced its new series the SSD 335. The New SSD’s are the first shipping drive using Intel’s 20-nanometer flash memory. Buyers will still get the same 500MB/s read speeds and 450MB/s writes in a 2.5-inch, SATA 6Gbps drive and up to 240GB capacity. The new SSD 335 line is available in a 2.5-inch form factor with a 9.5 mm thick case. The SSD series is backed by a three year warranty, Intel SSD 335 is available worldwide. Price point will be around $210.
“The Intel SSD 335 uses high-K/metal gate planar cell technology, which overcomes NAND process scaling constraints to deliver the smallest-area NAND cell and die in the industry. By pushing technology constraints and using process innovation, Intel can continue to progress SSD technology and pass along savings to our customers,” said Rob Crooke, Intel vice president and general manager for the Intel non-volatile memory (NVM) solutions group.
