INTEL HAS JUST announced it will be slashing the prices on a couple of products from its high-performance SSD line.
The Intel SSD X25-M and X25-E SATA SSDs have been snipped at by Chipzilla to become more affordable to us cash-strapped plebs struggling through the financial crisis.
The X25-M 80GB for notebooks dropped from $595 to just $390 whilst the X25-E 32GB, aimed mainly at enterprise, server, storage and workstations has gone from $695 to $415 for quantities up to 1,000.
Newer SSDs, including the X25-M 160GB have also hit Intel's cutting room floor, going from $945 when the devices shipped in December 2008, to $765. The original X25-E (32GB) was $595 and is now $415, whilst the X25-E 64GB sees no chnage in price, remaining at $795. µ
