When we reviewed Intel's 80GB X25-M solid-state drive in September, we noted that the company was readying a 160GB derivative for early 2009. Well, the chipmaker has revealed on its Chip Shots bulletin board that the 160GB X25-M is already shipping:
Intel is expanding its award-winning Intel® X25-M and X18-M SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) family by announcing the production release of a 160 gigabyte (GB) capacity drive in a 2.5-inch form factor. The product is shipping now, and a 1.8-inch 160GB version will begin shipping next month.
According to the official spec sheet, the 160GB drive has the same rated speeds as its 80GB sibling: 250GB/s for reads and 70MB/s for writes. Intel doesn't mention pricing, but considering the 80GB model currently sells for $500 at Newegg, we wouldn't expect the 160GB flavor to be cheap.
