Subject: Storage
Manufacturer: Intel

Introduction, Specifications and Packaging

Today we take a look at Intel's first offering in the SATA 6Gb/sec realm: The 510 Series SSD. We've been waiting for this for quite some time, and it certainly comes with a bit of a surprise in that box (more on that after the break):
  • Sequential read: up to 500 MB/s
  • Sequential write: up to 315 MB/s
  • Random 4KB reads: up to 20,000 IOPS
  • Random 4KB writes: up to 8,000 IOPS


The 510 came well packaged with a new style of sticker, tools CD, and 3.5" adapter bracket.
