Intel SSD 750 Series Solid-State Drives
Intel has officially unleashed their latest SSD 750 series solid-state drives meant to push storage drive speeds on the consumer front by harnessing the NVMe (Express) and PCI-e 3.0 standard. The latest SSDs from Intel are focused towards enthusiasts and high-performance users demanding consistent performance and high transfer rates with added reliability, all three of which are handled quite well by the SSD 750 series drives. Starting with the specifications, the SSD 750 Series will be available in two form factors, the standard 2.5″ bay drive which features the SFF-8639 connector cable to boot up while the second option is an add-in-card which fits into a half-length PCI-e slot. Since the motherboards don’t officially yet provide connectivity to the latest SFF standards which Intel is using on their latest SSD 750 series drives, they do bundle two connector cables with the 2.5″ variants that include an SFF-8639 to SFF-8643 (mini SAS) and SFF-8643 to M.2/SATA power cable. Since Z97 and X99 series of motherboards from AIBs do come with M.2 interface slots, the drives will easily be compatible with the current and upcoming generation of motherboards however most M.2 are Gen 2 x2 and to gain full potential of the SSD drives, its advised to equip them to a Ultra M.2 interface slot which are capable of x4 PCI-e Gen 3 speeds. Coming to the speeds, both the 2.5″ (15mm) and PCI-e add-in-card drives are backed by the PCI-e 3.0 x4 and NVM Express standard. Intel is using their latest 20nm 128Gbit MLC NAND on the SSD 750 series which are backed by the Intel CH29AE41AB0 controller.Specifications wise, both SSDs do sound a lot similar to the SSD DC P3700 which were aimed at data centers and professional workspaces however the difference lies in how Intel has repurposed the new drives for the consumer market with a focus on random performance (random IO...Read this entire review with images and benchmarks at windows8newsinfo forum.
