    One of consumer SSD's pioneers, Intel, is expected to launch its next-generation 510 series solid state drive (SSD) in the 2.5-inch SATA form factor on March 1, 2011. The Intel 510 series is targeted at PC enthusiasts, workstations, and high-end notebooks. It uses the latest 6 Gb/s SATA specification, and make use of 34 nm MLC NAND flash chips. The drives can dole out transfer rates of up to 470 MB/s read, and 315 MB/s write. It delivers 20,000 IOPS random 4K read, and 5,000 IOPS random 4K write performance. At least initially, it will be available in only two capacities, 120 GB and 250 GB, priced at around US $366 and $767, respectively.

    120 GB for $366?

    No thanks. I don't care that it's SATA 6, that's pretty high, even for a SSD.

    So it loses in IOPS and sequential to the new sandforce. Maybe it will fair better in real world tests, or be priced competitively.

    I do like Intel reliability but that's a bit expensive...

    The prices are supposed to be going down as quality / technology increases with SSD's. What are they thinking?

    Intel needs to wake up (again). They are getting delusional that whatever they produce is the best of the best and therefore requires a hefty premium.

    Someone (Namely AMD) need to take their crown away and slap them few times so that they can wake up.

    Those prices quoted are what an e-tailer in Europe has set for preorder. The real price for the 120GB is $280.. click the vr-zone link.

    Guys! I mean relax. If you are retarded enough to pay 1000$ for an Intel CPU which is marginally faster, or not at all, than a similar performance one at 300$ (still to darn expensive), you will be idiotic enough to buy those craps, even if there are cheaper, faster and bigger alternatives out there!
    Jeez. Those prices made me LOLed! haha!

    I'm sure that Intel is "advertising the product" but misleading with the price. On availability, I bet it will be much cheaper... and the competition will be caught off-guard. Or at least, let's hope so!

    Holy Intel what? I guess I'll be waiting another year or two to make the move to SSD...

    I won't be moving to SSD at all... Tons of writes on a dialy basis would kill them too fast on my case.

    I only rely on speed using normal HDDs in RAID. I own 3 in RAID 0 since 2007 and for what I payed, I'm pretty happy with them. So far zero failure. It happened to me once that the thing didn't want to boot, but it was caused by a loose sata cable.

    I believe in the future of SSD, but still I can't rely on SSD for their lifespan dropping seriously when writes get about most of you use it for, in a daily basis, unless of course, this is going to be improved somehow in the future.

    Not that I like old hardware or I don't trust the new tecnologies... But now that you mention tape drives... :rockout:
