My X25-M G2 has an odd product name ! : SSDSA2M080G2GN

Hello, I live in France and I've just bought a brand new Intel X25-M G2 SSD (34 nm, that's what the seller says). I've noticed two strange things about product name : the product name on the ssd and the product name written on the cardboard box are not the same ! And the SSD product name is "odd", I've never seen anything like this. Here are the numbers :

box : SSDSA2MH080G201

ssd : SSDSA2M080G2GN (yes, there is no "H").

There is no plastic spacer, the ssd height is 7 mm. It has the 2CV102G9 firmware.

Is my ssd a real product from Intel ? Is my ssd as good as the others X25M G2 ?

the "H" = high performance as seen here http://download.intel.com/design/flash/nand/mainstream/322296.pdf http://download.intel.com/design/flash/nand/mainstream/322296.pdf

I just rechecked my ssd and I am also missing the "H" I don't want to think I have spent money on a drive that is not high performance.

I hope some one will clear this up soon.

"I just rechecked my ssd and I am also missing the "H" I don't want to think I have spent money on a drive that is not high performance."

I have exactly the same thought... Can someone of the Intel staff answer ?

Same thing here with a 160, any insight would really be appreciated!

Hey everyone,

The best way to tell if you have our newest technology is simply the casing. The new 34nm comes in a silver metallic case. That's the real deal and we only sell the 80GB and 160GB capacities, both high performance.

Enjoy the drives!

Dear Alan,

Thank you for clearing up what colour the drive should be.

I hope you will be able to clear up the problem of the missing "H" as well?

According to Intel's own Ordering Information Decoder, the "H" stands for "Feature H = High Performance"

As seen here on Intel's own pdf http://download.intel.com/design/flash/nand/mainstream/322296.pdf http://download.intel.com/design/flash/nand/mainstream/322296.pdf on page two.

Also on the same page it shows all the Part numbers, and all of them have the missing "H" in the part number.

I am sure intel did not release the exact same product with two different part numbers.

So if you could confirm that there is two different products the SSDSA2M080G2GN & SSDSA2MH080G2GN and what the difference is. (one with the "H" and one with out)

or confirm that there is only one product SSDSA2MH080G2GN.

At the moment I feel as I can not find any information about my Intel SSDSA2M080G2GC on the Intel website, that I have bought a counterfit product.

As I said before I hope you can clear this up for me and the other people in this thread.

And remember just because you buy a red car doesn't mean you bought a Ferrari

Can Intel update its PDF ?

So I have tested my X25 G2GN 80 GB with crytal diskmark 2.2 and I'm not disappointed :

I have an ICH9R chipset (Gygabyte P35 DS3-R) :

IDE mode :

read seq. : 255,1

write seq : 91.61

read 512k : 169.3

write 512k : 91.11

read 4k : 23.80

write 4k : 64.17

AHCI mode :

read seq. : 268,8 (+ 5.37%)

write seq : 90,43 (-1.29%)

read 512k : 205,2 (+21,20% !!!)

write 512k : 90,82 (-0.32%)

read 4k : 24.02 (+ 0.92%)

write 4k : 66.41 (+ 3.49%)

I'm sure now that my ssd is a real Intel product but I just wanted to know for the missing "H"...

Understand the confusion.

The H was dropped off the 34nm SSD label. We were required to move to 14 characters on the product and the H did not differientate our drive.

We only have one product. The 80GB that you highlight could be labeled: SSDSA2M080G2GN or SSDSA2M080G2GC.

One product.

I bought the 160 GB version that came in the INTEL box by newegg and not the OEM version. The box that i have says SSDSA2MH160G2R5.

BTW, these drives are just plain ole awesome.

If you all would produce a 320 GB version i would be set.

@ dpm: glad you like our drives. I recently put a 160GB 34nm in my work laptop, and really enjoy it as well!

Higher capacities are certainly in our future. Hopefully they will be available when I fill my new SSD!

rgds,

Then why are you writing old product names on boxes?

I wish to buy a new SSD but i'm afraid that it will be an old one becuase it is written on a box. It's SSDSA2MH080G2K5

How can it be checked before i buy it?

Thank you

Alex, that is a current G2 drive.

Thank you for clearing that up,

I feel much better about my drive now, and I am very very happy with it, I would recommend any one and every one to get one of these drives over any other hardware up grade to there system as it gives such a boost.
