Intel has revealed their new 5 Series of Mainstream SSDs, offering 180GB, 240GB, 360GB, 480GB and 1TB capacities with a 5 year warranty. There will also be a 7 series of SSDs in the future which will offer higher speeds M.2, U.2 and PCI-e SSDs using the NVMe protocol, with the 5 series offering cost effective SATA storage with TLC Flash memory. 

The Intel 5 series of SSDs will be available in M.2 and SATA version, with the M.2 version being 80mm long and the SATA versions being available in 7mm thick 2.5" form factors. These SSDs will offer read speeds of 560MB/s and 480MB/s writes, which is almost as fast as the SATA interface can offer.

Right now Intel has not released pricing for this upcoming driver, or whether or not it will be using 3D or traditional Planar NAND. Hopefully, we will learn more over the coming weeks.

Why those particular sizes? Granted for games and digital artists etc larger capacity is usually more desirable.

I think they look pretty classy. Wonder what they'll retail for here?Quote
