Performance Amplified!

The Intel® Solid-State Drive 510 Series accelerates SATA throughput for demanding client systems by utilizing SATA 6 gigabits per second (Gb/s) performance and proven Intel NAND Flash Memory based SSD technology.  Available in a 2.5 inch form factor, the Intel SSD 510 Series supports data transfers of up to 500 megabytes per second (MB/s). As an accelerated storage solution, the Intel SSD 510 Series makes desktops, workstations, and notebooks come alive by transferring more data in less time” expediting storage I/O and unleashing system performance!

Outperforms HDDs

Designed to deliver outstanding performance, the Intel SSD 510 Series draws from decades of memory
engineering experience and comput equality NAND Flash memory manufacturing. The drives feature the latest generation SATA 6Gb/s interface with advanced architecture employing eight (8) parallel NAND flash channels equipped with multilevel-cell NAND Flash Memory. The Intel SSD 510 Series delivers exceptional throughput”dramatically outperforming traditional hard disk drives (HDDs).

In fact, the Intel® SSD 510 Series outperforms two SATA 6Gb/s 10,000 rpm RAIDed hard disk drives! High-end game and workstation systems benefit from increased storage performance over mechanical hard drive configurations. Mobile workstations now experience higher performance, as well as SSD ruggedness and power savings over RAIDed dual-bay HDDs.

Solid State Means Rugged, Lower Power

Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel Solid-State Drives have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet,  cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responsiveness. Boot time, application launches, file loads, sleep recovery, benchmarks; each activity is faster with a 120GB or  250GB Intel SSD 510 Series device. Delivering sequential read speeds up to 500MB/s and sequential write to 315MB/s, the Intel® SSD 510 Series dramatically accelerates operating systems and  application performance.

Designed to satisfy the most demanding gamers, media creators and technology enthusiasts, the Intel  SSD 510 Series brings high performance storage and reliability to notebook and desktop PC systems.

    Seams interresting.
    But i jusqt ordered a SSD OCZ IBIS 160GB.
    According to the spec’s:
    Max Read: up to 740MB/sec
    Max Write: up to 690MB/sec
    Seek tima: 0.1 ms

    I decided for this drive, taking in accound the spec’s first, and the 160GB storage, which i consider as a perfect C:/ drive.

    I heard these are still based on the G2 controllers with added support for SATA/600 (and still with 34nm NAND), since the G3 controllers will be paired with SATA/300 support. What do you think based off of your testing and analysis of the ICs?

    Looks like this is using a Marvell controller, similar to the Crucial C300. What the hell Intel?

    Finally, the SSD we’ve been waiting for. It sounds great, can’t wait for some objective reviews.

    Anyone else think 8 channel NAND controller is strange, since the old ones are 10 channel.
