FUD Zilla delivers word that Intel will reveal a 1.6TB "Wolfsville" solid state disk in the first quarter of 2013. The 2.5" disk will use the SATA 6Gbps interface and 20nm MLC NAND flash memory chips. Currently, Intel's largest capacity SSD offers 600GB of storage capacity, it can be found at Sears for $1,139.99.
We don’t know much about it but we do know that it’s based on 20nm MLC chips and that it comes in Q1 2013. The new drive should end up branded as 500 series starts at modest 60GB and it looks like it should replace the 520 series.
In the second half of 2012 the 520 series replaces the 320 series in this market segment, but this happens only “if necessary”. At this time we don’t have any performance numbers and indications how fast Wolfsville can perform, but with 1.6TB it looks like a massive drive that will probably cost well over $1,000.
