Intel Discloses Cherryville & Hawley Creek SSDs: Intel's Fastest SSD in Q4by Anand Lal Shimpi on September 14, 2011 4:56 PM EST
In addition to the SSD 710 series, Intel also disclosed two more SSDs codenamed: Cherryville and Hawley Creek. Cherryville is Intel's next 6Gbps SATA drive, replacing the SSD 510 and using Intel's 25nm MLC NAND. No word on whether or not it will use a 3rd party controller or Intel's own design. Intel claims Cherryville will be the fastest SSD on the market when it is introduced later this year.
Hawley Creek is the replacement for Larson Creek, Intel's SSD for use with Z68 caching systems. Hawley Creek will switch to 25nm MLC NAND and hopefully address pricing as well.
