Intel has announced it is expanding its X25-M 2.5-inch and X18-M 1.8-inch SATA solid-state drive (SSD) family with a 160GB drive in a 2.5-inch form factor.

The X25-M product is shipping now, and the 1.8-inch 160GB version shipping next month.

Intel announced the 80GB X25-M and X18-M - it's first foray into the SSD market - at its Developers Forum in August and shortly after announced the X25-E for enterprise servers and workstations.

The 32GB Intel X25-E Extreme SATA is based on Intel's single-level cell NAND flash memory and is designed to maximize the input/output operations per second, while the X25M is a multi-level cell memory affording it greater capacity.
