Intel SSD 530 Series Arrives Next Week

According to a leaked SSD product stack roadmap by Intel, scored by VR-Zone, the company is close to launching its next-generation performance-segment consumer SSDs, the SSD 530 series. The line succeeds Intel's SSD 520 and SSD 525 series, features the latest 20 nm MLC NAND flash, but the same LSI-SandForce SF-2281 controller (probably the latest revision, backed by a better firmware). According to the roadmap, the series should have debuted back in June, which never happened. Apparently, it's off by a month, and Intel moved its launch window to some time between the 8th and 12th of this month.

Intel's SSD 530 series will be available in three form-factors, including the familiar 2.5-inch SATA (7 mm-thick), NGFF M2, and mSATA. The drives will be available in 80 GB, 180 GB, 240 GB, and 360 GB for the M2 and mSATA form-factors; and 180 GB, 240 GB, 360 GB, and 480 GB for the 2.5-inch form-factor. At this point, nothing is known about their rated performance or pricing. Elsewhere in the lineup, SSD 335 series will continue throughout the year, going into Q1 2014, as Intel's mid-range SSD offering.

Intel 530? wow, this sounds amazing news for me. I already am using Intel 520 series & very happy with the overall performance. I am a tech buff and always support best technology & surely will be looking forward to this new product from Intel. MikeGR7 I am not sure why you dont prefer a world class product. You will be a loser for sure.

Intel 520 Was a great ssd of it's time! No wonder why you're happy with it.
530 though doesn't sound much of an upgrade. If you don't know why, maybe start reading more. Lol.
