Intel to Make Mini-SSDs for Tablets, Laptops

Intel on Dec. 29 launched a new set of mini-sized solid-state drives
for dual-drive notebooks, tablet PCs and enbedded applications that the
company claims provide performance as high as its larger SSDs.

The 310 Series drives are sized at a mere 51mm-by-30mm and 5mm thick,
about one-eighth the size of a current Intel 2.5-inch X25 flash SSD,
yet they can hold up to 80GB of data.

The new drives contain 34-nanometer Intel NAND flash memory chips and
are available in an m-SATA form factor in 40GB and 80GB capacities. The
310 Series also support SATA connectivity over a PCI Express (PCIe)
mini-connector for on-board storage in single-drive netbooks, tablets
or handheld devices.
