Updated. Lemme know if I missed something, I'm not too familair with intel generations, so I assumed it was between the 3 and 5 series generations, so I gave it the generation 3.5 tag thumb.gif

Curious, what exactly is a 5-series generation? As far as I'm aware the Intel 300 and Intel 500 only denotes the target market (300: mainstream; 500: high-performance). Strictly speaking, among Intel's consumer SSDs only the Intel 320 is a G3 since it's the only one that uses Intel's controller.

The Intel 710 uses the same controller as the 320, I believe except firmware has been tuned for enterprise workloads and instead of using consumer grade MLC, it uses high endurance MLC.

Honestly, I have no idea, I've just assumed there were generations associated with the series number because that's how the previous club owner (he went MIA and I took it over) was using that nomenclature (starting with the x series).

If you have a link or something clarifying things, I would be happy to fix something if the entire nomenclature is wrong smile.gif.

Now, if you ask me about samsung SSDs, I can tell you that there are clear generational segments between the 470 series and the 830 series biggrin.gif.

so the 710 isn't just a prototype but is actually used in enterprise situations?

The early Intel SSDs with Intel controller were just named Intel X25-M so G1 and G2 were used to differentiate between generations and lithography. Intel changed the naming after the G2 drives and strictly speaking, only the 320 (and 710 for enterprise) is an actual "descendant" of the earlier X25 SSDs. If you go by lithography wherein G1: 50nm, G2: 34nm and G3: 25nm, then all current Intel SSDs being sold are G3. Don't have a single link (mostly because I just followed SSD news) so the following is basically a summary of what I've read about over the years. tongue.gif

Intel Controllers
Consumer:
X25-M G1 (Ephraim?): 50nm MLC SATA2
X25-M G2 (Postville): 34nm MLC SATA2
320 G3 (Postville Refresh): 25nm MLC SATA2

Enterprise:
X25-E (Ephraim?): 50nm SLC SATA2
710 (Lyndonville): 25nm MLC-HET SATA2


Non-Intel Controllers
Marvell:
510 (Elmcrest): 25nm MLC SATA3

SandForce:
330 (Maple Crest): 25nm MLC SATA3
520 (Cherryville): 25nm MLC SATA3

Alright, thank you!

I'll get it all updated (and added to the OP wink.gif for the awesome knowledge) when I get some time for a major edit thumb.gif

I don't think you need to do a lot of editing since most of the SSDs on there are actually X25-M G1, X25-M G2 or 320 G3 Intel. I recommend just removing the G4 and G3.5 from the 330/510/520/710 SSDs. Strictly speaking, that's probably the most accurate way of doing it.
