Intel focusing on higher SSD write speeds

Posted on Monday, January 11 2010 @ 20:31:28 CET by


The Tech Report met with Intel at CES and learned some details about the chip giant's solid state disks plans for 2010. One of the things they heard is that support for 6Gbps SATA won't arrive until 2011, that's when the company will have chipsets capable of taking advantage of the higher bandwidth of the new SATA specification.
While it didn't reveal when those new drives will arrive, we can apparently expect higher capacities than are available with Intel's existing X25-series SSDs. Support for the 6Gbps Serial ATA standard isn't on the menu until 2011, though. That's when Intel will have core-logic chipsets designed to take advantage of the higher transfer rates enabled by the new SATA spec.
This year we can expect lower prices and disks with higher sequential write speeds to saturate the existing 3Gbps SATA. Furthermore, Intel also plans to include disk cloning software to spur solid state disk adoption.

The Intel chipset division should have their pay cut in half. 2 YEARS to come up with 6GB SATA and USB 3? Hello? Does Intel actually advance technology or just bring it out at the last second before it does out?

By 2011 we'll have SATA 12 and USB 4. Where I come from that could get an entire division summarily fired. But must just be business as usual for Intel.
