Intel has this week launched a new 730 Series solid state disk (SSD) which it has created to provide content creators and gamers with a 50% boost in controller speed compared to pervious models.
Intel has equipped their new Intel 730 Series drive with a high endurance rating and offer it with a five-year warranty and is capable of being used in RAID configurations.
Unfortunately though the Intel 730 Series drive doesn’t support encryption but is equipped with a funky aluminium case design and measure just 7mm thick.
The new 730 Series solid state disk (SSD) will start shipping on March 18th 2014 and is now available to preorder for $250 for a 240GB capacity and $480 for the 480Gb capacity. For a full review of the new 730 Series SSD jump over to the Tweak Town website.
Intel explains : ” The new 730 Series comes with a factory-overclocked SSD controller and NAND bus speeds. The controller clock is now at 600Mhz (up from 400Mhz in the previous model), and the NAND bus speed is now at 100Mhz (up from 83Mhz).”
