Intel Reports Solid-State Drive 330 Series [Health & Beauty Close - Up]
(Health & Beauty Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Intel Corporation announced the Intel Solid-State Drive 330 Series, a SATA 6 gigabit-per-second solid-state drive.
According to a release, the Intel SSD 330 Series is offered in 60 gigabytes, 120GB and 180GB.
"An SSD is still the single best upgrade you can make to your existing PC, and the Intel SSD 330 Series gives users the latest Intel SSD technology at a price to meet their budget," said James Slattery, product line manager for client SSDs, Intel Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group. "Backed by Intel's rigorous testing process, the Intel SSD 330 Series offers our users the speed they need at a great price, backed by world-class manufacturing, reliability and tech support."
The Intel SSD 330 Series contains Intel 25-nanometer multi-level cell NAND memory. Its SATA 6Gb/s interface doubles the bandwidth of its current SATA 3Gb/s Intel SSD 320 Series, providing up to 500 megabytes-per-second sequential read speeds and up to 450MB/s sequential write speeds for faster data transfers. Random read performance can go up to 22,500 Input-Output Operations Per Second and 33,000 write IOPS to boost overall application and system responsiveness, significantly outperforming a typical consumer hard disk drive.
The Intel SSD 330 Series comes in a standard 2.5-inch/9.5mm form factor as a replacement to a slower-performing HDD. It can be used in a dual-drive desktop PC configuration to speed up boot times and applications speeds, or as a single-drive notebook upgrade.
The 330 Series is available at retailers and online e-tailers.
