Intel to show off Solid-State Drive Overclocking at IDF

In an interesting turn of events, Intel plans to demo overclocking with Solid State drives and therefore to show how to boost performance via SSD in their upcoming IDF (Intel Developer Forum) which will be held next month from September 10 to September 12 at Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco.

Up until now, processors, graphic cards and memory kits are the desktop components possible to be overclocking. It is a bit odd, considering Intel plans to implement a micro-code a preventive measure to stop overclocking in ‘H’ and ‘B’ versions of Intel 8 series motherboards.

According to the report, it is being said that it is possible by bumping the clock rate of the SSD controllers and data rates of the NAND flash memory. You’ll have to worry about the maintenance of the data once the drive is overclocked.



But in any case, this maybe a move that would have little or no significant boost, considering that the currently available solid state drive are held back by SATA 6Gb/s, which is the reason why SATA I-O made plans for SATA 3.2 which will have a significant boost compared to the current SATA III specs.
