Intel in Q2 2010 Faster 34nm SSDs


Intel is a leading actor among Solid State developers and the demand for its SSDs is proof enough of that. Intel is constantly trying to catch up with the demand and there is still a drought in stores and media samples are a rare sight. We have confirmation that Intel is not expecting to catch up to the demand until February next year, which is perfect since the next generation of Solid State Drives from Intel will arrive just weeks later.

We earlier informed you about Intel’s work with 3-bit MLC NAND flash circuits and improving its manufacturing process. The next updated SSD series from Intel will remain at the 34nm node though.

We have it on good authority that the next performance upgrade of Intel’s Solid State Drives will launch in Q2 2010. They will still be using 34nm technology for the NAND flash circuits and we can probably guarantee ONFI 2.1 support since it, just like Micron, uses NAND memory circuits from the joint venture IM Flash Tech that supports the standard.

We presume Intel’s next SSD controller will bring better support for this and the SATA 6Gbps interface where Micron has already put the bar up high. We hope to return with more information on Intel’s coming Solid State Drives in the future.
