Intel delivers new 3D NAND SSDs for PCs, data centers, Internet of Things


Recommended Posts

I have already used the first generation 3D SSDs from Samsung in their EVO line and it is fast. Now Intel is coming out with their line of premium 3d drives at affordable prices.




"The chip giant bets big on the next-generation storage technology, including a solid-state drive for consumer PCs starting at $70.


3D NAND technology -- which allows cells to be stacked vertically, improving density and increasing capacity in smaller confines -- has quickly moved from the cutting-edge of solid-state storage to an increasingly mainstream feature of new drives. Samsung is using it in the mega-capacity SSDs it recently announced, and Intel has just unveiled a half-dozen new drive series that utilize the technology.


The new drives span across application types, with a pair for consumer and business PCs, two for data centers, and even a duo for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Most of them use the PCIe interface for speedier data transfers, though a couple of them make use of the slower SATA interface. The SSD 600p and Pro 6000p Series are designed for consumer and business desktop and laptop PCs, respectively, both using PCIe to deliver what Intel claims is 17 times the performance of traditional hard drives and three times the speeds of SATA solid-state drives."

They are already for sale on Newegg. Nice first asking price. But they can be had now for gamers and heavy video work very affordably. I could use 17 times the speed of the SATA equivalents.


Here are some Intel 600p already on the shelves:


$159.99 for the 512GB PCIE Version, that is dirt cheap for that hardware: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1UH4T13989&cm_re=Intel_SSD_600p_Series-_-20-167-412-_-Product


$104.99 for the 128GB version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820167411


I know how much faster my computer run with SSDs using SATA protocols and hardware. I can't even imagine 17 times faster than that.
