Get the answer JohnnyLucky a b å Intel a c 307 G Storage March 1, 2011 12:11:30 AM Found this over in several mainstream web sites a little while ago: "The 510 SSDs are available in 120GB capacities at $284 each (price per 1,000 units) and in 250GB versions ($584 each per 1,000 units)." If that wholesale price is correct, then the retail price will be higher. m 0 l JohnnyLucky a b å Intel a c 307 G Storage March 1, 2011 7:19:13 PM I read two technical reviews today. I also visted a couple of forums. Lots of disappointment with the performance and prices of the 510's. m 0 l tecmo34 a b å Intel a c 143 G Storage March 1, 2011 8:25:04 PM Here is the reviews I saw... http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=1087&type=expert&p... http://www.storagereview.com/intel_ssd_510_review_250gb I'm not very impressed or excited about it's performance. I'm hoping if it is a true performance measurement that the G3 will perform much better!! m 0 l JohnnyLucky a b å Intel a c 307 G Storage March 1, 2011 8:30:07 PM NEWS FLASH!!! I have always maintained that the Intel 510 solid state drives were Generation 2 (G2) and not Generation 3 (G3) drives. The specifications and the technical reviews bear me out. Intel will release their new 320 Series, 25nm NAND, Generation 3 (G3) solid state drives about the middle of next month.
