Intel 750 Series 1.2TB SSD

Intel is still playing by the 2014 playbook, re-purposing datacenter technology to fit your desktop and budget. This time, the company is reaching for its top-shelf controller technology to guarantee a winner.

Intel 750 Series

Intel’s latest SSDs are based on hardware that was originally designed for enterprise-grade workstations and servers, but there has been enough consumer demand for the company to rebadge its hardware as the 750 Series – a PCI Express slot SSD that’s undoubtedly the fastest storage device we’ve ever tested.

The SSD is based on the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe’) specification – a standard designed specifically for SSDs, unlike the traditional SATA interface which was originally built for much slower mechanical hard disks. Whereas SATA has a maximum usable bandwidth of 550MB/s, NVMe is almost six times faster at 3,200MB/s. The 750 Series uses four PCI-Express lanes at PCI Express 3.0 speeds, and to accesses data in parallel, rather than sequentially, which Intel claims will provide read and write speeds of 2,400MB/s and 1,200MB/s.

Unfortunately not all motherboards will be able to supply enough bandwidth to achieve such incredible speeds. Officially, only Intel’s own Z97 and X99 chipsets are supported, and because Z97 motherboards only have 16 PCI Express lanes you will have to share bandwidth between the SSD and a dedicated graphics card.
