From the press information I was just handed we have some quick details about the upcoming products being released under the Intel brand for the SSD market.
For desktop and mobile clients we’ll see the Intel X18-M and X25-M SATA drives in both 1.8″ and 2.5″ standard form factors. They will be available in 80GB and 160GB capacities sometime in the next 30 days.
Estimated transfer rates are 250 MB/s for reads and 70 MB/s on writes. Read latency is measured at just 85 microseconds or 0.085 milliseconds.
