Intel has launched a new series of SSDs, called the SSD 335, which will replace the 330 series. The Sandforce SF-2281 controller from the previous 330 line survives in the new 335 series, but the size of the chips has been reduced from 25nm to 20nm flash memory. Smaller transistors are cheaper to manufacture which potentially can lead to more affordable products.
Intel positions the 335 SSD as mid-range products, like the 330, with a focus on providing lots of bang for your buck. The SandForce SF-2281 controller is starting to show its age, and in our most recent SSD review it became clear that it no longer holds its own in the high-end segment. SandForce SSDs are starting to become true low-cost SSDs.
