Message Text: Intel officially announced today the Intel Solid-State Drive 330 Series, a SATA 6 gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) solid-state drive (SSD) based on Sandforce SF-2281 controllers and designed as a more affordable entry into the accelerated storage performance of SSDs.

The Intel SSD 330 Series is offered in 60 gigabytes (GB), 120GB and 180GB versions. It contains Intel 25-nanometer (nm) multi-level cell (MLC) NAND memory. Its SATA 6Gb/s interface doubles the bandwidth of its current SATA 3Gb/s Intel SSD 320 Series, providing up to 500 megabytes-per-second (MB/s) sequential read speeds and up to 450MB/s sequential write speeds. Random read performance can go up to 22,500 Input-Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and 33,000 write IOPS.

The Intel SSD 330 Series comes in a standard 2.5-inch/9.5mm form factor as a replacement to an HDD. It can be used in a dual-drive desktop PC configuration to speed up boot times and applications speeds, or as a single-drive notebook upgrade.

Available beginning today worldwide at a suggested channel price of $89 for a 60GB drive, $149 for a 120GB drive and $234 for a 180GB drive. It is also backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

Intel is currently offering a range of SSD choices within four product families. The Intel SSD 300 Family is aimed at entry-level, mainstream client users. The Intel SSD 500 Family offers more fully featured, higher-performing client SSDs for computer and gaming enthusiasts. The Intel SSD 700 and Intel SSD 900 Families are targeted for data center applications.
