Updated Intel Roadmap Reveals SSD 750 Series, M.2 Push by Company

Alongside an updated desktop CPU roadmap, Intel posted an updated consumer SSD roadmap at its 3D Revolution 2014 presentation in Rome. It reveals the company's next-generation consumer SSD series, codenamed "August Ridge," and branded SSD 750 series. Targeting both the "consumer" and "professional" (≠ enterprise) market segments, the SSD 750 series comes in three form-factors, 2.5-inch SATA 6 Gb/s, mSATA 6 Gb/s, and M.2 (likely PCIe 2.0 x2 link layer). The series will sell in most popular sub-terabyte capacities, and will be based on the company's 20 nm MLC NAND flash. We have no reason to believe Intel will discontinue using SandForce-made processors in its consumer SSDs. Intel's SSD 750 series "August Ridge" is slated for Q4-2014.

Well, if Seagate is planning to outsource SandForce controllers to others of course. Now that they bought LSI and all that... Though ic an't see reasons why would they stop doing that. It's a nice income considering how many vendors use them...

Intel SSD 730 is using it's own Intel PC29AS21CA0 controller the same as DC S3700 & S3500, so maybe 750 will continue using it?
