A handful of slides have been leaked giving us quite a lot of information about Intel’s upcoming solid state drive solutions for 2014. In the second quarter of 2014 we will see the introduction of three storage solutions from Intel, the SSD Pro 2500 series (codename Temple Star), SSD DC P3500 Series (Pleasantdale), and the SSD DC P3700 Series (Fultondale).
It has been said that the two new SSDs from Intel, the “Fultondale” and “Pleasantdale”, will be dealing with these issues of heat and power. Some documents have been leaked from the company which gives an idea of what the readied version of the data center SSDs is going to look like.
The Brinell design company has introduced its super slim SSD and is becoming quite a hit already. The Drive SSD makes use of the latest storage technologies, incorporating the avant-garde style. The drive not only uses high end and distinctive materials, but it also makes the maximum use of the most productive technologies which have enhanced the functioning of the device and has made it capable of offering the fastest transfer rates.
The new line of the storage products by Plextor was revealed at the IFA in Berlin earlier this week namely the M6 SSD prototype and the M.2 form factor SSDs. The M6 SSD prototype is the sixth generation of the M series, its predecessor being the last M5 series. This incorporates the use the of the A19 Toggle NAND flash by Toshiba which is the speediest version of an MLC in the market at the moment.
Virtium today launched its DecaStor line of solid state drives (SSDs). Designed in way to help embedded systems OEMs rely on a ready supply of SSDs in hard-to-find capacities, Virtium DecaStor 2.5 and 1.8-inch SSDs are considered to be the perfect storage solutions for applications designed around 80, 160 and 300 gigabyte (GB) capacity points. DecaStor SSDs also offers 10-channel controllers, which provide compatible transfer speeds for a huge variety of networking, industrial, in-flight entertainment, PoS terminals, gaming equipment and mobile monitoring systems.
Intel has formally announced their latest SSD 530 series targeted towards those consumers and client who expect high-performance from their systems. The SSD 530 series is designed for the next generation of Ultrabook PCs along with traditional desktops and laptop setups.
It has been reported by VR-Zone that Intel is preparing their new line of SSD 530 Series solid state drives that will feature the latest M.2 interface with NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor). This line will succeed Intel’s SSD 520 and SSD 525 series. According to the leaked roadmap the series should have debuted back in June, but it has been postponed till next week.
Seagate who we have known for years for their hard drives has been relatively quiet in the solid state drive space. Well it seems that is changing as today they are unveiling a complete solid state drive line, including their first consumer-based solid state drives. The new products include the Seagate 600 SSD, Seagate 600 Pro SSD, Seagate 1200 SSD and Seagate X8 Accelerator.
ADATA’s current lineup of 2.5-inch solid state drives are 9.5mm thick. While this does conform to the standard many new devices like slim laptops and ultrabooks require drives to be only 7mm thick. ADATA has now reduced the size of their 2.5-inch solid state drive lineup to 7mm. This way you can use ADATA drives in these devices. These new 7mm drives will ship with plastic holders so they can still be placed in 9.5mm slots.
Plextor is showing an unnamed line of consumer solid state drives that feature 19nm triple layer cell (TLC) NAND flash memory at CeBIT. They were showing three different capacity drives, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. The drives feature 256MB, 512MB and 768MB of DRAM cache respectively. All three drives are in a 2.5-inch form factor and have a SATA 6GB/s interface. They are powered by the Marvell 88SS9189 processor.
