Intel prepares budget SSDs, to launch them later this month

Although the hard drive crisis sparked renewed interest toward SSDs, the price you have to pay in order to get one is still too high for most users.

Intel will try to remedy the situation by releasing new budget-oriented solid-state drives that belong to the Intel 330 SSD line. Sporting SATA 3.0 support and sequential read/write speeds of 500 MB/sec and 450 MB/sec respectively, the new SSDs will be built around the 25nm NAND memory found in Intel 320 SSDs.
