FUD Zilla received information that Intel is working on Ramsdale, a new solid state disk that will use 34nm SLC NAND flash memory. The disk will be offered in 200GB and 400GB capacities. The pricing of these server disks is unknown.
Intel plans to introduce a new drive codenamed Ramsdale in 200GB and 400GB size and this new drive is based on new 34nm SLC process. This will be the first Intel’s drive for PCIe buss as the X25-E relies on the quite obsolete SATA 3GB/s.
This drive clearly tops the Lydonville MLC offering that comes in 300GB, 200GB and 100GB and SATA 3Gb/s. We still don’t know any projections of Ramsdale speeds but you can imagine that they will match or overcome the fastest drives you can buy today.

Wishlist is still for a 450GB, SATA3, 320 series with a 5 year warranty.
