Intel outs 56 GB solid-state drives

Intel Corporation has quietly added one mode SSD model to its already launched Series 535 line of solid-state drives. The latest model offers just 56 GB of capacity in a line that starts at 120 GB and quickly moves up to 480 GB so a logical question arises – who will need such low-capacity drives?

In fact Intel has a target market – the new 56 GB model will be used in various devices that require low density storage such as IoT applications, Digital Signage, mini PCs, ATMs, kiosks and others. Of course you can buy one such drive for you too given you have the need. Despite the low storage capacity the new drive performs well – it reaches sequential read speeds of up to 540 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 490 MB/sec and offers 48K random read IOPs, 80K random write IOPs, 16 nm NAND flash and a 5-year warranty.

The new Intel Series 535 56 GB SSD model is available now. The drive sells for as little as USD 59.
