Before you install a new hard drive or SSD, check out the specs of the storage device you’re considering before you go ahead and buy it. If the specs and the price are right, you’ll end up with a great solution to your computer needs.
The problem with the current Intel SSDs and drives is they are slow. If I had to guess, I’d imagine that Intel is trying to keep up with the competition, which is why they have released so many new generations since the first one. They’re trying to give consumers a solution that is as fast as possible, without losing the quality that Intel used to have. If you want the fastest possible boot time and the best possible performance for your computer, then look to Intel.
We are talking Intel’s newest SSD, the newest Intel SSD, the fastest Intel SSD, and the latest generation of hard drives.
The latest version of Intel SSDs was recently released and they dont disappoint. It has a 533-MHz transfer rate for single-threaded applications and a 7,200-MHz transfer rate for multitasking applications. It also has a read speed of up to 90MB/s for single-threaded applications and up to 550MB/s for multitasking applications.
That is the speed of the fastest SSD so far released by Intel. This is the fastest SSD known to man. We tested it on a MacBook Air and it put out a read and write rate of over 600MBs/s.
The fact that SSDs outstrip USB sticks in read speed is a good thing. The USB stick is like a tiny, cheap, slow drive that gets used to store files, that does not have enough storage to store data. SSDs have a lot more storage capacity so they can store more data. They are a big deal to use because they are faster and cheaper than USB sticks.
The main problem so far with SSDs is that they are still very expensive, which means the faster they are the less people will want them. But more recently Intel has released the Intel Rapid Storage Technology, which is a small SSD that can be embedded into the motherboard, so you can buy SSDs that are about the same price as USB sticks. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology will be available this fall.
The SSDs are great, but if you’re running Windows, you have to get your data off of your computer, which can be a pain in the butt. But Intel’s SSDs are cheaper, faster, and easier to use.
The Intel SSDs are fast, but they are still fairly bulky, so the speed of transferring data (about 60 MB/s) is slow compared to USB sticks. But it is the faster, more compact SSDs that are the real deal, and that’s where Intel is really pushing. They are trying to get more people to use USB sticks more, and they are actually helping drive a small but noticeable decrease in drive prices.
While USB sticks are cheaper and faster, they are slower and more limited than SSDs. And with SSDs, you can actually make your computer to be a lot faster.
