Intel plans SSD price cuts in August

Posted on Thursday, July 12 2012 @ 16:57:58 CEST by


VR Zone delivers word that Intel is planning to cut prices of its SSD 320, SSD 330 and SSD 520 series in August. The chip giant will cut prices by up to 37 percent, but pricing of some models like the SSD 320 series' lower-capacity models remain untouched.
The OEM price (in multi-unit quantity) of the SSD 320 300 GB is slated to go down from US $499 to $444, a 11% cut. The retail package (off-shelf) of the drive is expected to go down from $519 to $464. The SSD 320 600 GB, on the other hand, will see its OEM price drop from $1,039 to $859; and retail price from $1,059 down to $879.

The business end of these price cuts focus on SSD 520 series, the performance-segment consumer SSD family from Intel. Most popular capacity variants, such as 60 GB, 180 GB, 240 GB, and 480 GB, are slated for price-cuts:

  • SSD 520 60 GB: OEM price down from $99 to $89; Reseller pack down from $109 to $99 (9% cut)
  • SSD 520 120 GB: OEM price down from $179 to $129; Reseller pack down from $189 to $139 (26.4% cut)
  • SSD 520 180 GB: OEM price down from $269 to $189; Reseller pack down from $279 to $199 (28.6% cut)
  • SSD 520 240 GB: OEM price down from $339 to $249; Reseller pack down from $349 to $259 (25.8% cut)
  • SSD 520 480 GB: OEM price down from $799 to $494; Reseller pack down from $809 to $594 (37.7% cut)

    Prices of Intel's newest mainstream SSD line, the SSD 330 series, are also boud for cuts. In fact the most interesting pack of cuts target this series:

  • SSD 330 60 GB: Reseller pack price down from $94 to $69 (26.5% cut)
  • SSD 330 120 GB: Reseller pack price down from $149 to $104 (30.2% cut)
  • SSD 330 180 GB: Reseller pack price down from $234 to $154 (34.1% cut)
