Intel plans three new SSDs lines for 2014

Leaked slides on Intel plans for the year 2014 have described three new SSD families planned for release sometime in Q4 2013. The new lines will be known as SSD Pro 2500 Series (codename Temple Star), SSD DC P3500 Series (codename Pleasantville) and SSD DC P3700 Series (Fultondale). All devices will make use of 20 nm MLC NAND flash memory, will carry a 5-year warranty and will come in two form factors.

There isn’t much else to say about these new solid state drive families except some numbers for the performance levels. The SSD Pro 2500 Series will be available in 2.5-inch and M.2 form factors and will come in 80 GB, 180 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB versions; performance will reach up to 540 MB/sec of read speed and 490 MB/sec of write speed.

The SSD DC P3500 Series will be available in 2.5-inch and PCI-E add-in-card form factors. This SSD line will offer large capacities of 250 GB, 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB and read/write speed of 2800/1700 MB/sec. The last family – the SSD DC P3700 Series – will be available in the same form factors and same read/write speed but will come in different capacities of 200 GB, 400 GB, 800 GB, 1.6 TB and 2 TB.

The pricing of the upcoming SSDs is still unknown.
