Extremely fast

by Vince on 3/2/2009

Just about the fastest storage you can get for your PC. Was large enough to fit Windows 7 beta and one game on with room to spare, I bought a conventional HD for everything else. For a desktop PC you'll need a 2.5" to 3.5" mounting adapter though.

Installed on my new Nehalem Mac Pro as RAID 0 (two SSD's) for system software and apps. Very fast startup and program launches. Stable as a rock. Quiet. A very nice experience.

Product Overview

The Intel® Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) offers outstanding performance and reliability, delivering the highest IOPS per watt for servers, storage and high-end workstations.

Enterprise applications place a premium on performance, reliability, power consumption and space. Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel Solid-State Drives have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool storage solution that also offers significantly higher performance than traditional server drives. Imagine replacing up to 50 high-RPM hard disk drives with one Intel X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive in your servers — handling the same server workload in less space, with no cooling requirements and lower power consumption. That space and power savings, for the same server workload, will translate to a tangible reduction in your TCO.

Drawing from decades of memory engineering experience, the Intel X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive is designed to deliver outstanding performance and reliability, featuring the latest-generation native SATA interface with an advanced architecture employing 10 parallel NAND flash channels equipped with single-level cell NAND flash memory for even greater overall performance and reliability. With powerful Native Command Queuing to enable up to 32 concurrent operations, these Intel SSDs deliver higher Input/Output Operations per Second (IOPS) and throughput performance than other SSDs on the market today - and drastically outperform traditional hard disk drives. These Intel drives also feature low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design for higher reliability, meaning Intel drives not only perform better - they last longer.
