It's been quite some time since we saw a true client SSD come out of Intel. The last client product to use their legendary 10-channel controller was the SSD 320 (launched in 2011), and even that product had its foot in the...
Good overall performance.
Excellent cost/GB for an M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.
Inconsistent / stuttery performance while operating with a full write cache.
Pricing and Warranty (MSRP /...
In an attempt to better represent the true performance of hybrid (SLC+TLC) SSDs and to include some general trace-style testing, I’m trying out a new test methodology. First, all tested SSDs are sequentially filled to 100%. Then the first 8GB span...
We are trying something different here. Folks tend to not like to click through pages and pages of benchmarks, so I'm going to weed out those that show little to no delta across different units (PCMark). I'm also going to group results...
We have shifted over to combining our results into two groupings for consumer reviews. First up is sequential performance:
Starting at the rear:
Well, there's nothing but some labels. All chips are up front for this part, and I suspect that will be the case all the way up to the 1TB capacity.
Intel announced the production of 3D NAND a little over a year ago, and we've now seen production ramp up to the point where they are infusing it into nearly every nook and cranny of their SSD product lines.
Intel launched their Datacenter 'P' Series parts a little over two years ago. Since then, the P3500, P3600, and P3700 lines have seen various expansions and spinoffs. The most recent to date was the P3608, which packed two full...
Intel SSD DC pedigree remains unmatched in quality control testing and reliability.
Cost/GB below $0.50 for an Intel NVMe Datacenter SSD!
