Default Intel Delivers Industry's First 34nm NAND Flash SSD; Advancement Lowers Prices by Up to 60 Percent

Intel Corporation is moving to a more advanced, 34- nanometer (nm) manufacturing process for its leading NAND flash-based Solid State Drive (SSD) products, which are an alternative to a computer's hard drive. The move to 34nm will help lower prices of the SSDs up to 60 percent for PC and laptop makers and consumers who buy them due to the reduced ... [ Read full article ]

DailyTech - [COMPLETE-EMBARGOED UNTIL 11 EST- see note]Intel Launches 34nm NAND SSDs, Claims 60% Price Cut Possible

wow.

Same controller, faster/smaller memory at a cheaper price.

Available now: SSDSA2MH080G2C1 - Price Comparison - Canada's Cheapest Prices Lowest price as of this search is $390. I would think this will drop within the next month once the 'rush buzz' fades a bit.

This improved performance is not shown in the X-25's sustained sequential write speed, which can only achieve up to 70 MBps. Instead read latency is now 65 microseconds and write latency is just 85 Ás. That compares to read and write seek times of 4.2 ms and 4.7 ms, or 4200 Ás and 4700 Ás.
Max xfer is still 250 MBps however...Does this just mean a better I/O xfer?

Boo can't get to the DailyTech article! Someone cut+pasted before they took it down:
Intel 34nm SSD will have a 60% reduction in price! - [H]ard|Forum

I still only see 1st gen Intel drives in shopbot. When I saw the posts on XS I searched everywhere I could.. best I found was $266 USD each + ship when ordering 20 or more units.

Yeah, they took it down. It got leaked 12 hours early. It had an 11am embargo, and they posted it at 11pm.

This is the reprint of that article at the proper time: AnandTech: Intel's 34nm SSD Preview: Cheaper and Faster?

FiXt, why are you identically copying what the OP has said and linked the same thing?

We posted Intel's press release in the Hardware Canuck's News section (the forum isn't the only part of the website ya know ;) )

The two threads were merged into one rather than having two separate threads about the same topic, but the automated script appears to have converted the OP's post into the news snippet from HWC's news post :S (which is identical to my post)

A fix is in the works
