Default Intel Officially Announces 510 Series 6Gbps SSDs

Quote:
510 Series SSDs are available in 120GB and 250GB capacities

We got a glimpse of what to expect with Intel's latest storage products last week when LaCie let it be known that its upcoming Little Big Disk features the new 510 Series SSDs. Today, Intel is making the announcement official.

Instead of using an in-house controller, Intel's new 510 Series SSDs make use of a Marvell 88SS9174-BKK2 controller. As a result, the new 6Gbps SSDs offer read speeds of 500MB/sec and write speeds of up to 315MB/sec.

"The Intel SSD 510 Series helps round out our SSD product line and was specifically designed for applications that require high sequential media transfers," said Pete Hazen, marketing director for Intel's NAND Solutions Group. "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."

The Intel 510 Series SSDs feature a 3-year warranty and come in capacities of 120GB and 250GB. The smaller SSD will set you back $284, while the larger one will run around $584.

Head on over to PC Perspective for a preview of the new SSDs.

Hummmm, Intel is using a Marvel Controller??? That's very unusual, I think Crucial uses a Marvel Controller also.

My Gigabyte UD3P uses Marvell for the SATAIII and USB3 ports. It's not uncommon to see those controllers in a plethora of other boards either. I think it might have something to do with that. Compatibility is key with SSDs.

My Asus mobo also has a Marvel SATA 6Gbs controller, that's not uncommon. But Intel likes to use Intel which is what they used in their older SSD's. Now their drives will be the same as a Crucial SSD, more or less.

Yes but before, all SSDs they were making were SATAII. Intel could use their own controllers and not have to worry about compatibility.
