Without saying exactly what it will be, Intel plans to make a "big splash" near the end of the year or the beginning of next with a product that can "overclock" solid-state drives (SSDs)."This is a product we're looking into but we have not released yet. So I'm not able to go into great detail about a future product ... as far as specs and such," said Alan Frost, marketing and communications manager for Intel.What Frost could say is that the SSD product will allow users to tweak the percentage of the drive that's used for data compression.Overclocking typically refers to pushing past the recommended processor clockspeed, thereby increasing performance over what is specified by a manufacturer. In the case of SSDs, Intel is using the term "overclocking" to define modifying its specified SSD parameters.
