Using the same controller as the X-25M SSD series, the 310 SSD series bring a 40GB and 80GB drive to anextremely small form factor. A handy performance chart, taken from techreport, shows all the numbers. These seem like some good drives, and I'll be interested to see how companies use the small form factor to fit more storage into small places. As we reported back in December, the 40GB drive will cost $99 while the 80GB drive will cost $179.
