  1. Thanks for sharing JohnnyLucky!!

    Now we need the benchmarks, specially compared against the Vertex 3, C300 and C400 (when released :D )
  2. With a little luck there might be 3 technical reviews published tomorrow. :)

    Hot Hardware stated they have not yet received a 510 for review.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Here is the reviews I saw...

    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!!
  6. 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. Here's a link to the information:

    No indication which model the specs are for.
