Intel doubles capacity, drops price in refresh of popular SSD line

leave a comment »

Solid-State Drive 320 series offers up to 30% drop in price; capacities increased by up to triple that of X25-M drives

With the 320 Series, Intel has added native 128-bit AES encryption on the drives, which protects data while at rest on the NAND flash memory.

For data resiliency, Intel also included surplus NAND flash chips on the drive’s board over and above the usable capacity. If the SSD’s controller detects a potential chip failure, it automatically migrates data to the spare capacity.

Intel has also included small capacitors in its latest SSD, so that in the event of a power loss, data writes in progress to the NAND flash memory will be completed.
