Well, Intel's latest SSD's are using the standard Sandforce chipset like
almost everybody else.
Yep, along with earlier Marvel-equipped drives, although Intel, as the
name can't help but imply, carries a huge hubris of tradition,
intimacy and development in advancing the PC into how world perceives
a new order of intelligence. Samsung would be nowhere near, of
course, being a more of recent exception with their own widely
successful but proprietary controller approach;- in fact, Samsung is
recently in the news for entrenchment purposes, as cell phones, across
the industry, now well along into a 2nd-generation reception, aren't
near demands that propelled high-profits by 1st-generation reception.
Few if any could match Intel's material resource facilities, alone,
for a sense of goods and quality involved in computer manufacturing.
Without AMD to compete, Intel is arguably the premier regarded SSD,
likely with a corporate clientele listing to match it. I'd have one,
too, but pricing matrices can tend be off the chart, at least for me,
for a mood to buy what I'm apt then to be, dollar-cost-averaging, if
not digging around for bottom-scrapings out of some sale's barrel.
