I just purchased a new 80gb ssd drive from intel. I searched online for test utilities and spoke with intel techs (which were no help), but i was unable to find a utility to test the functionality of the hard drive. Do they have programs that test drives like drive fitness test and seados tools do to ide drives, but for ssd.

I believe only the Indillinx controllers store information about how many writes per cell have been made on average and an estimate to how long the drive will last. I don't think this information can be obtained from an Intel SSD, so you'll simply need to benchmark it and see how well it runs.
