Intel 760p NVMe SSD performance data emerges

More information has leaked regarding Intel's upcoming 760p series of SSDs, M.2 NVMe drives that are set to hit the high-performance storage market in early February, giving PC builders more options when purchasing high-speed storage solutions.  

Intel's 760p series of SSDs will release with capacities of 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB, all of which ship on a single-sided 2280 M.2 form factor (The 2TB model may be dual-sided).

Tom's Hardware reports that Intel will be using a cooling stip on the drive to help the SSD's controller remain cool under sustained loads, something that is seen in some other modern M.2 SSDs. This cooling strip is a typically a thermally conductive material on the driver's sticker, allowing heat to be dissipated from the controller over a larger surface area. 

Like many modern SSDs, the 760p offer its greatest performance levels with high-capacity models, with the drive's smaller 128GB and 256GB offering significantly slower read/write speeds than their larger brethren. When comparing the 128GB and 256GB models we can see that the larger model provides almost 2x faster operating speeds under most workloads, though the smaller 128GB model is still faster than standard SATA solid state drives.

When comparing Intel's 512GB, 1TB and 2TB models we can see that each of them offers the same 3,200MBps 128KB sequential read speeds and the same 350,000/280,000 Random 4K read/write random write IOPS numbers, making these drives almost identical from a performance standpoint. 

At this time the exact pricing of these SSDs is unknown, though they are expected to officially launch in early February, which means that PC builders will not have to wait for long to see some more competition in the high-end SSD market.

Good. About time we had a price war.

The only SSD I have bought in the past five years is a Arc 100 OCZ. Every other one has been Intel. They are the only SSD I've not had die on me yet (never had a Samsung).

D'you know what? I shouldn't have said that. I will pay for it now, no doubt lol.Quote
