Intel has just unveiled it latest new SSD to be added to its solid state drive line-up, the new Intel 510 Series SSD equipped with 6Gbps SATA with read speeds of up to 500 Mbps and write speeds of up to 315 Mbps. Providing three times the rates of Intels current 3Gbps solid state drives.
The new Intel 510 Series SSD have been constructed using 34nm NAND Flash memory and have been specifically designed for gamers and enthusiasts who are looking to squeeze every drop of speed out of their hardware.
Pete Hazen, director of marketing for Intel’s NAND Solutions Group, explained:
“The Intel SSD 510 Series helps round out our SSD product line and was specifically designed for applications that require high sequential media transfers. Whether it’s a gamer wanting impeccable visual performance and faster game loading, or a performance-intensive workstation user, the new 6Gbps SATA SSD from Intel is not only significantly faster than the top 10,000 RPM gaming HDD, it’s also faster than two RAIDed gaming HDDs.”
Currently the only prices that have been released by Intel are for bulk 1000 lot purchases and a 250GB SSD 510 will cost you $584, while the slightly slower 450MBps read, 210MBps write, 120GB version will cost around $284.
