Intel 750 Series SSD
Intel Corp. announced its new 750-series solid-state drives this week. The new SSDs are designed for high-performance desktops and the manufacturer calls the drives its “highest-performing client SSDs”. With read speeds up to 2.40GB/s and capacities up to 1.2TB, the Intel 750-series SSD is a dream of any performance enthusiast.
The Intel 750 SSDs are based on the company’s own proprietary controller known as the CH29AE41AB0 that supports various types of NAND flash memory with ONFI interface as well as PCI Express host interface and NVMe protocol. The same controller is utilised on Intel’s DC P3700 enterprise-class solid-state drives. The 750 SSDs use IMFT’s multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory produced using 20nm fabrication process and are equipped with 2.5GB of DDR3 DRAM cache.
The new high-end consumer solid-state drives from Intel are available in 400GB and 1.2TB capacities in order to address customers with relatively limited budgets and customers with requirements for higher storage capacities. The Intel 750-series SSDs come in PCIe 3.0 x4 half-height half-length (HHHL) add-in-card form-factor. Eventually Intel plans to release 2.5” versions of the 750-series SSDs with SATA Express SFF-8639 connector (which supports four lanes of PCI Express 3.0).
Thanks to advanced controller and high-speed NAND, Intel’s 750-series solid-state drives can deliver truly stunning performance for consumer-grade SSDs. Intel declares sequential read/write speeds up to 2.20/0.9 GB/s for the 400GB version and up to 2.40/1.2 GB/s for the 1.2TB flavour. Thanks to support of the NVM Express (NVMe) protocol, the new SSDs should deliver considerably higher performance in real-world applications than the drives with similar interfaces, but which rely on the outdated AHCI standard. Still, in many workloads that require intensive writes, Intel’s 750-series SSDs will be behind a number of other high-end SSDs available today.
