Intel prunes SSD prices

Extends budget range too

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Intel has pledged to make its solid-state drives less expensive. It has reduced what it charges resellers for its 320, 330 and 520 SSDs.

It also added a 240GB drive to the 330 line, which previously topped out at 180GB. The 330 series is pitched at consumers seeking a cheaper option than its better-performing 520 family.

Alas, Intel didn't say how much it's cutting prices, which will in any case take a wee while to filter through to affect over-the-counter prices. Like almost all suppliers, Intel doesn't like to say what it charges go-betweens for kit, and it doesn't sell direct to users.

The 180GB Intel 330 currently retails for around £150; the 240GB 520 comes in at around £200, while the 480GB model is typically £550. ®
