intel ssd

Intel announced the X18-M and X25-m consumer SSD drives. So what’s the big deal, there’s a bunch of them already? The big hoohah is that these drives are blaaazing fast, as tested by Laptop Magazine and PC Perspective.

Intel’s claim of a 250MBps read rate have been confirmed by the reviewers. To put that into perspective, the current highest performing SSDs peak out at 120MBps and regular hard disks clock in at 50MBps. Pretty sick if you ask me.
