The Intel SSD 530 is being announced and features 20nm MLC NAND as well 2.5", mSATA and M.2 form factors to meet loads of ultra-mobility applications. The SSD 530 ships in capacities up to 480GB depending on the form factor. The 2.5" form factor SSD 530 delivers the greatest array of capacity options with 80, 120, 180, 240, 360 and 480GB offerings, and from that list, M.2 drops the 240 and 480GB options, while mSATA drops the 360 and 480GB.

Sort of strange launch without any real technical details of controller or improvements that have been made. I suppose this is really just a refresh like 320 --> 335, just this time 520 --> 530.

Best news in there though is broad adoption of different form factors. I really appreciate as a builder that I'll be able to get one of these in any form factor and have the same performance characteristics. mSATA is still my favourite.

other sites suggest it's the same controller, newer revision, tweaked FW. Nothing new.

No larger than 480GB? Ugh. I am curious what a future next-generation model will hold, as opposed to this, which looks more like a refresh...
