Intel launches ultra-small SSD range

Chipmaker Intel's latest range of solid-state drives is designed for a variety of form factors including tablets and dual-drive notebooks, with Lenovo said to be interested in becoming an early adopter.

Intel has a new range of solid-state drives (SSDs) that are one-eighth the size of its mainstream 2.5-inch X25 range.

The new Intel SSD 310 Series is designed for a variety of form factors, including dual-drive notebooks, single-drive tablets and low-power embedded applications, the company announced alongside the release of the drives on Wednesday.

Lenovo appears to be keen on the drives. "The Intel SSD 310 series will allow us to provide the advantages of a full performance Intel SSD paired with the storage of a hard-disk drive in a small, dual-drive system," Lenovo's director of ThinkPad product marketing, Tom Butler, said in a statement.
