  Posted on 1300704968 by Guillaume

VR-Zone have just published a few final details on the Intel 320 Series SSD. To recap, this MLC SSD range is being introduced to replace the X25-Ms (and X25-Vs) with models equipped with 25 nm flash memory chips. In terms of specs, for random reads and writes on 4 KB blocks, the new drives are reported to give 39500 and 23000 IOPS respectively. Support for 128-bit AES encryption, announced some time ago, has been confirmed. MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) has been announced at 1.2 million hours, which is identical to the two previous generations of X25-M.

The Series 320s will be in competition with the recently announced Intel 510 SSDs

VR-Zone have given pricing of $109, $189, $239, $329, $569 and $1119 for the 40, 80, 120, 160, 300 and 600 GB models. Note that while these models were originally expected for mid-April, they should now be officially launched on March 28.
