How do you know it's a GEN 2 Intel X25-M?
May 7, 2010, 6:19 PM
When shopping onlne, how do you know if an Intel X25-M it is a
Is it the "G2" in the manufacter part number / product description? Example: SSDSA2MH080
Is there any difference b/t the "C1" and "R5" models.
Or are all 34nm units Gen 2? I thought they went to 25nm? Or are all X25-M Gen 2?
And, is there any difference b/t the "black" or "silver" models?
Most retailer have the "G2" models, so this may not be an issue.
For a future build, in a couple of weeks. I may wait until Gen 3 comes out later this year anyway.
BTW: looking to get an Intel X25-M 80GB this time. As I already have 2 x Intel X25-V 40GB in RAID 0. Next build will do without RAID...

SSDSA2MH080G2C1 - The G2 is the important part. Not all x25-m are 34mn. The black ones are 50mn. 25mn isn't out yet.
I also opted for no RAID... I prefer having TRIM.

Thanks guys! Anybody when Gen 3 is to be out? Can't find where I read this summer.

In the past they've been announced / introduced in the late summer / fall timeframe, so I'd expect the same thing again this year...
