The Inquirer writer Sylvie Barak claims the new Intel solid state disks with 34nm NAND flash memory will arrive within a week or two, which is a lot sooner than expected as previous reports talked about a Q4 launch.
We've been told that with these new 34nm NAND SSDs, users can expect higher performance, higher capacities, and most importantly, lower prices.
Amongst the 34nm offerings hot off the production line will be a 320GB drive, plus 160GB and 80GB capacities too. But there very well could be more. Our sources tell us there will be drives big enough to replace the HDDs in most, if not all laptops.
Intel is said to be really optimistic about SSD prospects in 2010, especially considering the smaller and cheaper process node along with SSD specific optimizations built into Windows 7.
