Once we have got the news that Intel third-generation SSD codenamed "Postville Refresh"Intel X25-M G3 SSD will be postponed its release to February next year.However,we found out that it is sold quietly at Taobao (Just like Ebay but it is in China) with labeling the benchmark of X25-M G3.
Intel new-generation SSD X25-M G3 will adopt 25nm IMFT MLC NAND chip,new controller chip,with capacities of 80/160/300/600GB.As official news says,the SSD is with read and write speed of up to 250MB/s and 170MB/s,supporting AES-128.
However,the read speed shown at Taobao is up to 218MB/s,there is much difference from the official data of 250MB/s.
The write speed shown at Taobao is up to 167.4MB/s, basically the same with the official data of 170MB/s.
