    Intel 330 Series specs and positioning


      As rumored on various hardware sites earlier this month, the new Intel 330 Series SSDs unofficially hit the streets today. Here are some product and price shots from Akihabara, Tokyo:




      According to the photos, the drives are equipped with 25nm MLC flash and a Sandforce 2281 controller just like the 520 Series, which raises some questions:


      1. The drives are cheaper than the 520 Series, so what compromises/downgrades were made to meet that price?
      2. Will the 330 Series replace the 320 Series or will they coexist in the short or long term?
