Intel is preparing to launch its SSD 330, the successor of the SSD 320. Unlike its predecessor, it doesn’t mount a controller manufactured by the company but a SandForce SF-2281. This is the same solution as the more expensive SSD 520 or the OCZ Vertex 3.
This move opens to new possibilities for the chip-manufacturer to attack the mainstream SSD market. Performance isn’t known yet but price is: only 149 dollars for a 120GB drive.
It’s one of the lowest price point for a SandForce-based solid state drive. And Intel has strong reliability records. So it seems Intel SSD 330 could have all the qualities to be your next SSD. Fast, cheap and reliable.
A good news from Intel.
