Intel 710 Lyndonville, 720 Ramsdale SSD Specs

German computer site Computer Base obtained some unreleased information regarding Intel's 710 'Lyndonville' and 720 'Ramsdale' SSDs that are coming down the pipe.

The 710 is using Intel's 25nm NAND flash on a SATA 3Gbps connection. Those will come in 100, 200 and 300 GB varieties and will have read and write speeds at up to 270 MB/s and 210 MB/s.

The real interesting bits are about the 720, which runs on the PCIe bus. The PCIe bus interface alludes to some pretty intense speeds, but our jaws are dropping at the read and write speeds of up to 2200 MB/s and 1800 MB/s, respectively, noted on the leaked specs sheet.

These SSDs are set to hit until Q3, so it should not be too much longer until we have the official word (and test units) from Intel.

    A couple of kilobytes of info thrashing? Wow, can't wait until it becomes gigabytes. One step at a time to better SSD's.
