SSD storage is an expensive commodity, speeding up your PC experience over the spinning rust of mechanical storage at the cost of additional financial expenditure. 

Thankfully, SSDs are getting lower in price, and that extends to the NVMe side of the solid-state storage spectrum, with Intel’s 1TB 660p series SSD decreasing in cost to under £100 in the UK. That’s less than 10p per GB, which is an excellent price for an NVMe storage device. 

Intel states that this QLC-based NVMe SSD ships with read/write speeds of 1,800MB/s, utilising an SLC cache to mitigate the performance impact of Intel’s QLC NAND. This cache is over 100GB in size on the 1TB 660p, which means that most users will not ever see the downsides of QLC NAND. How often do you write over 100GB of data to your SSD at a time, never mind at the full storage speeds of an NVMe storage device? 

What Intel offers here is a lot of value SSD storage, shipping for a price tag that’s similar to many SATA-based 1TB SSDs. This makes Intel’s 1TB 660p a great upgrade option for PC users, especially those that need this much SSD storage capacity.
