Intel X25-M G3 SSD Debuts At Taobao

X25-M G3(300GB)

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.

Now X25-M G3 with capacities of 160/300/600GB are available,prices range from Yuan2400 to Yuan8000,which equal to US$359/US$1197.

    Well, the Sandforce 2000 chip will give the G3 a beating.
    G3:
    Sequential Read: 250MB/s
    Sequential Write:170MB/s
    read IOPS: 50K
    write IOPS:40K
    Security: AES-128

    Sandforce 2000:
    Sequential Read: 500MB/s
    Sequential Write:500MB/s
    read IOPS: 60K
    write IOPS:60K
    Security: AES-256

    Don’t mind the commenter up top. Intel is actually selling the SSD with above specs. The SF-2000 is just a CHIP that can in THEORY can do those speeds. Lets see the actual drive do this first THEN it will give a beating to Intel.

    The link even says “capable of 500mbs”. Those types of people voted Obama in.

  3. Scott Says:

    More importantly, Intel SSD’s are still far more reliable than SandForce. The dead-in-a-week rate on OCZ Sandforce drives is a few percent. For intel its a small fraction of a percent. Having deployed 150 Intel SSD with no failures yet in 2 years gives me confidence. Having 1 in 2 SandForce drives purchased die within a week does not. Look at the reviews on NewEgg and count how many people have dead drive issues with SandForce drives versus Intel.

    Next, Intel’s G3 drives will not lose data on power loss, SandForce and Intel G1/G2′s do unless they have a supercapacitor (Vertex 2 Pro, which is 2x the cost of normal Vertex 2 despite only adding a supercap!).

    AES 256 is only marginally superior to AES128, and many security experts think it may become LESS secure in time due to a weakness in its implementation details. Nothing short of a (non-existent) quantum computer can touch AES128 anyway.
