Intel 750 Series NVM Express SSD Review

Technology

Rather than be limited to the meagre bandwidth available to the SATA ports, the NVM Express utilises the bandwidth from the PCI Express 3.0 to unleash enough bandwidth to make your head spin. PCI Express 3.0 supports 8Gb/s per lane, so the x4 Intel 750 here supports 32Gb/s or, in real world terms, potentially 4GB per second transfer rates. Obviously there is some overhead, but it gives you a glimpse into how the paltry SATA interface is the limiting factor, and that the move to PCI Express is the moment of genius that makes the transfer rates you'll see on the following pages possible. 

Those of you who read all of our content will recall in our X99 Sabertooth review we mentioned a future product we couldn't talk about, well this it is.

On the off-chance that you were a doubting Thomas when SSDs first appeared, hopefully by now you understand their benefits, and so a glance at the following charts should pique your interest. Yes, quad-drive RAID is made to look sluggish in comparison to the Intel 750, and even the other PCI Express storage options barely match up. Time to discover how true these claims are in the real world.

Ha ha love it dude, KB, Kb, MB, Mb I used to get confused too.

Quote:
KB, MB, GB - A kilobyte is 1,024 bytes. A megabyte (MB ) is 1,000 kilobytes (KB ). A gigabyte (GB ) is 1024 megabytes. A terabyte (TB ) is 1024 gigabytes.
Kb, Mb, Gb - A kilobit is 1,024 bits. A megabit (Mb) is 1,024 kilobits (kb). A gigabit (Gb) is 1024 megabits. A terabit (Tb) is 1024 gigabits.
Don't forget! There are 8 bits in a byte, so to translate from one to the other you can multiply or divide by 8. For example, if you want to transfer 1MB across a 1Mbps connection it will take 8 seconds.
Should someone do a small helpful guide..Quote
