Intel launches 760p series of high-speed M.2 NVMe SSDs

Intel has officially launched their new 760p series of high-performance M.2 NVMe SSDs, offering a significant leap in both performance and efficiency over the company’s existing 600p series of NVMe drives.  

With the 760p, Intel wants to offer performance levels that are up to 6x faster than SATA SSDs at near SATA pricing, offering their 512GB model at a price tag of $199, which is a lot cheaper than Samsung’s competing 960 Evo series SSD. 

This series of SSDs will come with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB capacity options, though only the 512GB or lower models will have been released to retailers. The drive’s larger 1TB and 2TB variants will ship to retailers later this quarter. 

When compared to Samsung’s 600p series models the 760p offers a 2x performance improvement as well as a 50% reduction in power consumption, making these drives around 4x more efficient.

Intel will ship these drives with a five-year warranty and with an endurance rating of 72TBW per 128GB, which is around 40GB per day for Intel’s 128GB 760p SSD during its warranty period. 

This drives utilises Intel’s 64-layer TLC 3D NAND, which has been available in enterprise products since June 2017, delivering NAND that has been tried and proven in the harsh enterprise storage market.

This new SSD will ship in a standard 2280 M.2 form factor, using up to four PCIe 3.0 lanes to utilise this drive’s full speeds. With an active power draw of just 50mW, the 760p will have an almost negligible impact on your system’s power draw during normal workloads, making this drive both cost-effective and power efficient.

Intel has started shipping 128GB, 256GB and 512GB 760p SSDs to resellers with MSRP pricing of $74, $109 and $199 respectively. 1TB and 2TB models will release later in Q1 at a higher cost.
