Intel lowers SSD prices

Starting in August of this year chip giant Intel will lower the price of its own solid-state drives with certain models getting cheaper with as much as 37 per cent. Not all SSDs will get cheaper though with models on the SSD 320, SSD 330 and SSD 520 series getting the price axe.

To cut a long story short here are the new prices of SSDs belonging to the 520 series:

  • SSD 520 60 GB: OEM price down from $99 to $89; Reseller pack down from $109 to $99 (9% cut)
  • SSD 520 120 GB: OEM price down from $179 to $129; Reseller pack down from $189 to $139 (26.4% cut)
  • SSD 520 180 GB: OEM price down from $269 to $189; Reseller pack down from $279 to $199 (28.6% cut)
  • SSD 520 240 GB: OEM price down from $339 to $249; Reseller pack down from $349 to $259 (25.8% cut)
  • SSD 520 480 GB: OEM price down from $799 to $494; Reseller pack down from $809 to $594 (37.7% cut)
