Kingston now offering rebranded Intel solid-state drives

Kingston Technology currently has  new solid-state drives (SSD) coming to store shelves for those of you who like a little more to choose from. The company has just announced two new enterprise-oriented SSD product lines, one being the E series and the other the M series.

The 32GB E series is designed with an enterprise server environment in mind, offering read and write speeds of 250MB/s and 170MB/s. The 80GB SSDNow M series on the other hand is geared more towards the mobile professional with read and write speeds of up to 250MB/s and 70MB/s. Both of these drives are rebranded versions of the existing Intel high-performance SSDs. Kingston hopes to speed up the acceptance of solid-state drives in the year 2009.

In order for the adoption of such technology the pricing has to come down. The Kingston 32GB SSDNow E series and 80GB SSDNow series are priced at £680.56 and £499.08. Maybe in a few months we will be seeing a price drop on such drives.
