Updating intel ssd

Honestly, aside from the awkward name, is what SATA Express should have been from the beginning because nearly all upcoming PCIe controller designs will feature four PCIe lanes, which renders SATA Express useless as there's no point in handicapping a drive with an interface that's only capable of providing half of the available bandwidth.That said, I wasn't at the table when SATA-IO made the decision, but it's clear that the spec wasn't fully thought through.The others had also done their homework and gone back to drawing board, which meant that Intel was no longer in the special position it was in 2008.Once the SSD DC S3700 with in-house Intel SATA 6Gbps controller finally materialized in late 2012, it quickly built back the Intel image that the company had in the X25-M days.That said, the controller is also much more power hungry and the 1.2TB SSD 750 consumes over 20W under load, so you won't be seeing an M.2 variant with this controller.Similar to the SSD DC P3700, the SSD 750 features full power loss protection that protects all data in the DRAM, including user data in flight.Something that would abandon the bottlenecks of SATA interface and challenge the X25-M in significance in the history of SSDs.That product was the SSD DC P3700, the world's first drive with custom PCIe NVMe controller and the first NVMe drive that was widely available.

At the time of launch, the SSD 750 will only be available in capacities of 400GB and 1.2TB.An 800GB SKU is being considered, but I think Intel is still testing the waters with the SSD 750 and thus the initial lineup is limited to just two SKUs.After all, the ultra high-end is a niche market and even in that space the SSD 750 is much more expensive that existing SATA drives, so a gradual roll out makes a lot of sense.I'm happy to see that Intel understands how power loss protection can be a critical feature for the high-end client segment as well because especially professional users can't have the risk of losing any data.The SSD 750 is available in two form factors: a traditional half-height, half-length add-in card and 2.5" 15mm drive.
