back to article Intel to double SSD capacity

Intel is expected to bring forward the projected doubling of its SSD capacities to as early as next month. The current X18-M and X25-M solid-state drives (SSDs) use a 50nm process and have 80GB and 160GB capacities with 2-bit multi-level cell (MLC) technology.

    Have you tryed some out under stress testing?, and if so how did they fair?
