The move to 34nm will help lower prices of the SSDs up to 60% for PC and laptop makers and consumers who buy them due to the reduced die size and advanced engineering design, Intel said. The multi-level cell Intel X25-M Mainstream SATA SSD is aimed at laptop and desktop PCs and available in 80GB and 160GB versions.
