Intel: Ultrasmall SSD
Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., showed its recently-introduced Intel Solid-State Drive (Intel SSD) 310 series. The Intel SSD 310 delivers performance similar to that of the Intel X25-class SSDs, but in one-eighth the size. Measuring only 51x30x5mm, the SSDs target dual-drive notebooks, single-drive tablets, and low-power, rugged embedded industrial or military applications. When paired with a high-capacity hard drive in a dual-drive system, the Intel SSD 310 can improve overall PC system performance by up to 60 percent, Intel said.
