Solved How do you know it's a GEN 2 Intel X25-M? Tags: SSD NAS / RAID Intel Storage Last response: May 15, 2010 2:08 AM in Storage Share foscooter a c 97 G Storage May 7, 2010 6:19:33 PM When shopping onlne, how do you know if an Intel X25-M it is a Gen 2 version? Is it the "G2" in the manufacter part number / product description? Example: SSDSA2MH080G2C1. 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... More about : gen intel x25 Anonymous a b G Storage May 7, 2010 11:45:34 PM 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.
