Intel 320 Series SSD: The fast hard drive alternative that protects your data - With 5 Year Warranty!
Shift your PC's performance into high gear
Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs) just got better. The next generation Intel SSD 320 Series offers built-in data protection features, better performance, larger capacities and more value for your money. Built with 25 nanometer (nm) compute-quality Intel® NAND Flash Memory, the Intel SSD 320 Series accelerates PC performance where it matters most. With random read performance up to 39,500 input/output operations per second (IOPS)1 and sequential read performance of up to 270 megabytes per second (MB/s), your PC will blaze through the most demanding applications and will handle intense multi-tasking needs. Couple that performance with random writes up to 23,000 IOPS and sequential writes up to 220MB/s to unleash your system.
Superior built-in data protection features
The new Intel SSD 320 Series contains built-in features to help protect your data from external threats and internal system snags. The Intel SSD 320 Series comes pre-configured with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128 bit encryption capabilities2. In the event of theft or loss of your computer, you have the peace of mind that your personal data is secured by an advanced encryption technologies.
Additionally, two new data protection features guard your data from internal system mishaps. To reduce potential data loss, the Intel SSD 320 Series detects and protects from an unexpected system power loss. The drive saves all cached data in the process of being written before shutting down, thereby minimizing potential data loss.
The Intel SSD 320 Series also improves reliability by providing an array of surplus NAND flash. If the controller encounters a faulty NAND array, the Intel SSD 320 Series automatically reconfigures itself to reduce the prospect of data loss.
Capacities to fit your needs
Available in a wide range of capacities, the Intel SSD 320 Series provides you with the flexibility to choose an SSD that best fits your need and budget.
Whether you choose the 40 gigabytes (GB), 80GB, 120GB, 160GB, 300GB or 600GB capacity, the Intel SSD 320 Series delivers the highly responsive PC experience you desire.

World-Class reliability - better by design
As the third generation of the SSD that changed the industry with its overall performance, value and reliability, the Intel SSD 320 Series draws from decades of memory engineering experience, and new industry leading, compute-quality Intel 25nm NAND Flash memory manufacturing processes. The Intel SSD 320 Series features an advanced architecture that employs 10 parallel NAND flash channels3 equipped with multi-level cell NAND flash memory. With powerful Native Command Queuing that enables up to 32 concurrent operations; the Intel SSD 320 Series drastically outperform traditional hard disk drives.
The Intel SSD 320 Series also features low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design for higher reliability; meaning Intel SSDs not only perform better, they last longer. Thrust your PC's performance into overdrive with an Intel SSD 320 Series!
New 5 Year Warranty From Intel on 320 Series SSD
Confident in the enhanced reliability features of its recently introduced third-generation solid-state drive (SSD), Intel announced it has extended its limited warranty for the Intel® SSD 320 Series from three years to five years. The extended warranty term will apply to all Intel SSD 320 Series drives, including those already purchased. Additional limitations apply to enterprise usage levels. See full warranty details.
