is now shipping its next-generation client/consumer SSDs, the Intel SSD
335 series, which are built using 20nm NAND flash memory, which Intel developed in tandem with IM Flash Technologies. The 20nm NAND uses a planar cell structure and Hi-K/metal gate stack integration to beat the scaling constraints of the traditional NAND floating gate cell.
Available in a 240GB capacity, the Intel SSD 335 features SATA 6Gbps, 500MBps/450MBps sequential read/write speeds, and 42,000 IOPS/52,000 IOPS. The 2.5-inch drive measures 9.5mm in height including the chassis.
Customers also get SSD management tools, including the Intel SSD Toolbox (with SSD Optimizer and the System Configuration Tuner) and Intel Data Migration Software. In the box, there’s also a 2.5-to-3.5-inch drive adapter and SATA cables.
Stay tuned for our review of the Intel SSD 335, coming soon.
