Intel has announced in March that its newest high-performance storage unit will be available in just 18 months. The new product is called SSD, or Serial ATA, and will offer speeds up to 480 gigabytes per second. The unit will cost $1,499 for a 1.5-gigabyte drive and $2,499 for 2.5-gigabyte drives.

However, the company’s own benchmarks (which are based on benchmarks from other companies) suggest that SSDs aren’t really that much faster than hard drives. It appears that their claimed speed will be based more on the physical size of the drives than a real speed boost. SSDs will be available with dual controller chips, and their speeds should be able to match HDDs in storage capacity.

I think Intel is trying to get a little bit of a monopoly on memory chips, and that’s fine, but it seems like this is the same type of technology that is being used to make smartphones, and the same type of memory we’re used to seeing on your laptop.

The reason that a number of computer companies like IBM and Dell are pushing SSDs is that they see SSDs as the future of computer storage. The idea is that SSDs will be able to store much more data and have much faster speeds than today’s hard drives.
