Intel's Centrino 2 solid-state play

Very interesting news on the Intel front - according to the usually-reliable Digitimes, the chipmaker is getting into the solid-state drive business in a big way, with SSDs apparently to be bundled with the upcoming Centrino 2 (Montevina) platform.We're seeking some comment or confirmation from Intel itself on the matter, but in the meantime - if the story is solid - we're looking at a product line called Intel High Performance SSD.

Very interesting news on the Intel front - according to the usually-reliable Digitimes, the chipmaker is getting into the solid-state drive business in a big way, with SSDs apparently to be bundled with the upcoming Centrino 2 (Montevina) platform.

We're seeking some comment or confirmation from Intel itself on the matter, but in the meantime - if the story is solid - we're looking at a product line called Intel High Performance SSD.

From Digitimes:

Initial shipments of Intel High Performance SSDs will come in two versions – Client X25-M and Client X18-M – the former having a physical size of 2.5-inch and later 1.8-inch. Both will feature 80GB capacity and a SATA interface.

Storage capacities will go up "to 250GB and above" in 2009, apparently.
