Intel Solid-State Drives Now Available at Best Buy


Intel's Solid-State Drives (SSDs) are now available in 800 Best Buy stores across the U.S. and on BestBuy.com, Intel said.

During the past decade, HDD speed has improved 1.3 times, while Intel's processor speeds have improved more than 200 times. This has caused a system bottleneck that SSDs can help solve. HDDs use a mechanical arm and spinning platter, which can sometimes result in a hard disk crash. An SSD uses flash memory chips and is 100 percent solid state with no moving parts. This makes an SSD rugged, reliable and energy efficient. The biggest benefit is in performance, where an Intel SSD delivers up to 56 percent improvement in system responsiveness for gamers, multimedia enthusiasts or anyone desiring to get more performance out of their new or existing notebook or desktop computer.

The Intel X25-M Mainstream SSD has 80 gigabytes (GB) of storage space. The Intel X25-M can serve as a replacement for a hard drive in a notebook or desktop and has a Best Buy price of $229.99. The 40GB Intel X25-V Value SSD is priced at $129.99. It is most effectively used as a "boot drive" in a desktop PC where the current hard disk drive is used for storing data, while the value SSD gives a boost to system performance by storing the operating system and gaming, or other important applications, for much faster access and boot up.
