Intel SSD Roadmap Leaked

Storage 785 Published by

The guys at VR-Zone have mastered the art of leaking information. This time they got their grubby little paws on the roadmap for Intel's SSD products.

It looks like Intel will be moving to a smaller fabrication process from 50 nm to 34 nm by Q4 2009 with capacities available up to 320 GB for their SSDs. The successor to Intel Turbo Memory has also been detailed, known as Braidwood and set for release in Q1 2010, it is said to, "provide SSD-like performance on second generation Ibex Peak chipsets like Q57, P57 and H57."

To use Braidwood you will need, "Firmware support, Intel Rapid Storage Technology as well as the Braidwood module." These come in smaller capacities ranging from 4 GB to 16 GB, and will also be based on Intel's new 34 nm fabrication process. There is no official word on pricing as yet, but .. that's probably for the best ;)
