Intel 320GB SSDs in Fall

Intel plans to double the capacity of its solid-state drive within the space of a year, a note sent to its partners reveals. The company has only just released 160GB flash drives within the past month but is telling PC builders and others to expect 320GB models in the fall. The boost would be made possible by Intel's 34nm flash process, which lets it pack much more storage into a given space.

The company declines comment on the claim, which would follow the historical tendency of SSDs to double in capacity roughly every year.

Additionally, early details have surfaced regarding Braidwood, the codenamed version of an update to Intel's Turbo Memory. It should be due in early 2010 and will expand the format include as much as 16GB of flash cache to further improve boot or app load times on notebooks and other systems with slower hard drives.

    Exciting times!

    The death of the traditional hard drive is getting closer every day. I'd say in 5 years you won't see them very often.
