You can say that the Internet is an ocean which is stored in a physically super large bucket, but has holes all over the place that leaks are considered as commonplace, so it would be rather awkward if no leaks concerning an upcoming product or service were to happen instead. Well, we do know that Intel has a could of solid state drives (SSDs) which are being prepped for a general release, and they go by the monikers Intel 710 “Lyndonville” and Intel 720 “Ramsdale”. These enterprise SSDs seem to have their specifications sheet leaked in a document obtained by German site Computer Base, so read on after the jump for a full taste of the leak.
The Intel 710 will follow the 25nm process, and will be a HET MLC – which is actually a more durable variant of MLC (multi-level cell), and you can choose from a range of capacities such as 100GB, 200GB, and 300GB. The Intel 710 also touts read and write speeds of up to 270 MB/s and 210 MB/s, respectively, not to mention sporting a 3Gbps SATA connection.
As for the Intel 720, this puppy will come with 34nm SLC chips that comprise of 200GB and 400GB capacities, not to mention super fast read and write speeds of up to 2200 MB/s and 1800 MB/s, respectively. That’s just plain nuts!
Best to start saving up to have one of these puppies in your machines down the road.
