The high-performance storage for notebook and desktop PCs, Intel X25-M, is now made on 34nm NAND flash memory featuring the Intel Solid State Drive (Intel SSD) Toolbox. With sustained sequential read speed up to 250MB/s and write speed up to 70MB/s (80GB drive), the Intel X25-M mainstream SSDs are designed to satisfy the most demanding gamers, media creators, and technology enthusiasts. These drives bring a high level of performance and reliability to notebook and desktop PC storage, at a fraction of the cost of the previous generation of Intel SSD products.
SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responsiveness. And for laptop PCs, the lower power needs of Intel SSDs translate to longer battery life and lighter notebooks. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
Better Performance & Reliability Based on industry-leading compute-quality 34nm NAND flash memory manufacturing processes, Intel X25-M mainstream SSDs feature native SATA II interface with an advanced architecture employing 10 parallel NAND flash channels equipped with multi-level cell NAND flash memory to deliver outstanding performance. With powerful Native Command Queuing to enable up to 32 concurrent operations, Intel X25-M SSDs deliver higher input/output per second (up to 35000 IOPS for Random 4KB Reads) and throughput performance than other SSDs on the market today. These 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.
Intel SSD Toolbox with Intel SSD Optimizer The Intel SSD Toolbox with Intel SSD Optimizer provides a set of applications to easily manage the health and optimize the performance of your Intel SSD. The Intel SSD Toolbox includes a powerful set of management, information, and diagnostic tools, and is designed to work best with 34nm Intel SSDs. The Intel SSD Optimizer utilizes the new ATA Data Set Management Command (Trim Attribute) to help maintain your SSDs performance at "fresh-out-of-the-box" levels, and is specifically designed to run with Microsoft Windows 7. The Intel SSD Optimizer also works with Microsoft Windows Vista and XP operating systems as well.
2.5" Form Factor The Intel X25-M is specifically designed for notebook computers coming in a 2.5-inch hard drive form factor. In addition, the installation kit includes a 3.5” adapter for matching with 3.5” drive bay to extend the storage of your desktop computer.
