Intel launches high-end SSD 530 Series




Intel has its 530 series solid state drives launched. The SSDs come in capacities from 80GB to 480GB available and get mSATA, M.2 and 2.5 “SATA connections with it. Intel has the energy consumption compared to the previous generation SSDs quite know emissions.

The SSDs are available with four different capacities, 80, 120, 180 and 360 gigabytes. Intel delivers them in a form factor with mSATA connector, but also appear ngff – or M.2 models for example, ultrabooks, which have different sizes and SATA, 2x PCI-E and PCI-E 4x interfaces can have .
