Intel SSDs To Leap Ahead Of The Rest?
"When Intel launches its...products, you'll see that not all SSDs are created equal," (Intel's NAND Marketing Director Troy) Winslow said. "The way the SSDs are architected, the way the controller and firmware operates makes a huge difference," he said, referring to the chip (controller) that manages the SSD and software (firmware) that the controller uses.
Considering Intel's extensive experience in both the mobile markets and the server space, we can imagine that they have a very good idea what kinds of features, prices, and access requirements those different segments require. As a result, we wouldn't be surprised if Intel branded their drives for specific purposes much as they do their CPUs.
