Still on the East Side
According to some newly-leaked slides, Intel is planning quite a solid state drive release spree for the second quarter of 2014, one that will see the introduction of three storage solutions - the SSD Pro 2500 Series (codename Temple Star), SSD DC P3500 Series (Pleasantdale) and SSD DC P3700 Series (Fultondale). All three SSD families are going to utilize 20 nm MLC NAND Flash memory, will be available in two form factors and will be backed by a five-year warranty.

The SSD Pro 2500 Series drives come in 2.5-inch and M.2 sizes and deliver sequential read and write speeds of up to 540 MB/s and 490 MB/s, respectively. Capacity-wise, the SSDs will be available in 80 GB, 180 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB versions.

The SSD DC P3500 Series will reach read/write speeds of 2800/1700 MB/s and are set to ship in 2.5-inch and PCIe add-in-card (AIC) form, in 250 GB, 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB capacities. As for the SSD DC P3700 Series, the only models packing HET (High Endurance Technology) NAND chips, these will also be available in 2.5-inch and PCIe AIC versions, and top 2800/1700 MB/s when reading/writing, but they will come in 200 GB, 400 GB, 800 GB, 1.6 TB and 2 TB capacities.

I wonder how affordable a 250gb/500gb PCIe add-in-card will cost? I'd be interested in that.

knowing intel? arm, leg one kidney and your new 4K screen is my guess. DC is their data center disks i think at least its not a consumer product, so prices are sett accordingly.

Man, I would love some PCIe 500GB drive. Will those be bootable and support TRIM?
