Intel' upcoming Fultondale and Pleasantdale solid state disks reportedly required design adjustments due to increased power consumption and heat output. VR Zone writes Intel had to give the SSD a ribbed bottom surface in order to better dissipate heat. The site says the maximum workload power consumption of these disks is rated at 25W. Fultondale and Pleasantdale are expected to arrive in Q4 2014.
Intel is pushing past 500GB, all the way to 800 and 1600 GB with its upcoming high capacity SSDs and had to make some design adjustments after initial testing.

According to documents seen by VR-Zone, the thermal profile and power consumption of Fultondale and Pleasantdale required Intel to make the bottom surface of the drive ribbed in order to better dissipate heat.
