the "H" = high performance as seen here http://download.intel.com/design/flash/nand/mainstream/322296.pdf
I just rechecked my ssd and I am also missing the "H" I don't want to think I have spent money on a drive that is not high performance.
I hope some one will clear this up soon.
Thank you for clearing up what colour the drive should be.
I hope you will be able to clear up the problem of the missing "H" as well?
According to Intel's own Ordering Information Decoder, the "H" stands for "Feature H = High Performance"
As seen here on Intel's own pdf http://download.intel.com/design/flash/nand/mainstream/322296.pdf on page two.
Also on the same page it shows all the Part numbers, and all of them have the missing "H" in the part number.
I am sure intel did not release the exact same product with two different part numbers.
So if you could confirm that there is two different products the SSDSA2M080G2GN & SSDSA2MH080G2GN and what the difference is. (one with the "H" and one with out)
or confirm that there is only one product SSDSA2MH080G2GN.
At the moment I feel as I can not find any information about my Intel SSDSA2M080G2GC on the Intel website, that I have bought a counterfit product.
As I said before I hope you can clear this up for me and the other people in this thread.
And remember just because you buy a red car doesn't mean you bought a Ferrari
Can Intel update its PDF ?
So I have tested my X25 G2GN 80 GB with crytal diskmark 2.2 and I'm not disappointed :
I have an ICH9R chipset (Gygabyte P35 DS3-R) :
IDE mode :
read seq. : 255,1
write seq : 91.61
read 512k : 169.3
write 512k : 91.11
read 4k : 23.80
write 4k : 64.17
AHCI mode :
read seq. : 268,8 (+ 5.37%)
write seq : 90,43 (-1.29%)
read 512k : 205,2 (+21,20% !!!)
write 512k : 90,82 (-0.32%)
read 4k : 24.02 (+ 0.92%)
write 4k : 66.41 (+ 3.49%)
I'm sure now that my ssd is a real Intel product but I just wanted to know for the missing "H"...
Understand the confusion.
The H was dropped off the 34nm SSD label. We were required to move to 14 characters on the product and the H did not differientate our drive.
We only have one product. The 80GB that you highlight could be labeled: SSDSA2M080G2GN or SSDSA2M080G2GC.

Then why are you writing old product names on boxes?
I wish to buy a new SSD but i'm afraid that it will be an old one becuase it is written on a box. It's SSDSA2MH080G2K5
How can it be checked before i buy it?
Alex, that is a current G2 drive.
