Intel X25-V 40GB SSD now shipping for $130

Posted on Friday, January 08 2010 @ 16:45:43 CET by

The Tech Report spotted a 40GB Intel X25-V solid state disk is now selling for $129.99 at NewEgg.
That price gets you a 2.5", 40GB SSD in a retail box with a three-year warranty as well as a 2.5"-to-3.5" adapter bracket. Intel's spec sheet (PDF) says the drive uses 34-nm flash memory, has TRIM support, and manages sustained sequential speeds of 170MB/s for reads and 35MB/s for writes.

By comparison, the retail-boxed 80GB X25-M sells for $299.99 and achieves sequential read and write speeds of 250MB/s and 70MB/s, respectively—quite a bit faster. The X25-M also has lower write latency, although other attributes like the mean-time-between failures rating and 300MB/s Serial ATA interface look to be shared with the X25-V. Intel builds the new X25-Ms out of 34-nm NAND flash, too.
