Apparently, it looks like Intel will be launching a 600GB 25 nm Solid State Disk(s) by the end of this year. This year, users have already seen the price of the SSDs dwindling to a record low. SSDs are now available for a mere 100$. SSDs have a higher read/write speed compared to traditional Hard Disk drives. They also consume less power, and are smaller in size. Their only downside is their longevity. Traditional Hard Disks have a longer life-span compared to SSDs.
Users can argue that traditional Hard Disks are comparatively cheaper than SSDs, but that is just a matter of time. SSDs prices have been falling down, and soon they will reach a price-point where they are reasonable for general masses to buy them. Intel is one of the most renowned SSDs manufacturer. According to Fudzilla, Intel has big plansfor the holiday season with the launch of new 25 nm MLC NAND Flash memory based SSDs. The company plans to launch the SSD in capacities of 160GB, 300GB and 600GB.
Soon after, Intel will launch 1.8 inch SSDs with their capacities reaching up to 300GB. The launch of these new 25nm 1.8 inch SSDs will mark the end-of-life of the existing 34nm and 50nm 1.8 inch SSDs from Intel. These 1.8 inch SSDs will be primarily used in Camcorders, Blu-Ray players and other similar devices.
