Intel's 160 GB SSD For PCs Out In Market

Intel started shipping a 160 GB, 2.5-inch solid-state drive for laptops and desktops, called as X25-M.

Intel also said that they are also going to launch a 160 GB, 1.8 inch SSD name X18-M, in next month. The chipmaker already shipped 80 GB versions of the two drives in September.
SSD is offered by computer manufactures which will used in ultralight laptops and mini-notebooks, basically used for e-mails ad web browsing. Here SSD's are very useful since they are much lighter and use less power than current hard-disk drives. Major computer maker like Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo offer SSD's in notebooks.

Both X18-M and X25-M are based on Intel's multilevel cell memory. The technology that differentiates the SSDs from others is used of 10x NAND flash channels and "native command queuing" that enables up to 32 concurrent operations for faster performance, according to Intel.
Drivers reading speed of 250 Mbps and writing speed of 70 Mbps, both drivers are available with SATA interface of 1.5 Gbps and 3 Gbps.

Though pricing was not released but Intel says, life expectancy of drivers are about 1.2 million hours of mean time before failure, and power consumption is pretty impressive which is 150 milliwatts during a typical PC workload and 0.06 of watt when idle.

Beside two drives, Intel also makes the X25-E Extreme SSD for servers, storage and high-end workstations. The SATA drive is availability in capacities of 32 GB and 64 GB, and has a life expectancy of 2 million hours of MTBF.
