Intel SSD DC P3700 NVMe PCIe Review
Our Summary and Conclusion
The Intel SSD DC P3700, Find Them At Amazon.Com
We have seen pricing on some high-end PCIe-based solid state drives hit the stratosphere, and looking back at its performance relative to competing solutions, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the price of the Intel SSD DC P3700 did too. Intel seems to be aggressively pricing the new SSD DC P3x00 series drives, however. We don’t have street pricing just yet, but the 400GB SSD DC P3700’s MSRP is $1207. The P3600’s is $783. And the P3500’s is $599. Those numbers equate to per GB costs of about $3.00 (P3700), $1.95 (P3600), and $1.50 (P3500), which puts the expected price of the 800GB drive we tested right around the $2400. That’s not cheap for 800GB of storage, by any means, but keep in mind we looked at the top-of-the-line, enterprise-class part. Performance of the much more affordable P3500 series shouldn’t be that far off, and at under $600 for a 400GB drive, we know some of you will be interested. Even still, $3 a gigabyte for a drive that offers the kind of performance and features of the Intel SSD DC P3700 is highly competitive.
Ultimately, we can’t help but be impressed by the Intel SSD DC P3700. The drive offers cutting-edge technology, with impressive performance, and at a competitive price in its market segment. There’s not much more you can ask for.
