Earlier this week, Intel launched its new SSD 670p family, which targets mainstream consumers. The SSDs use 144-layer quad-level cell (QLC) 3D NAND along with a Silicon Motion (SMI) 2262 NVMe PCIe Express controller. The SSD 670p is available in 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities, which is typical for newly introduced SSDs these days. However, some people were still a bit puzzled by the SSD 670p. These are PCIe 3.0 SSDs at a time when the industry is starting to switch over to the PCIe 4.0 interface for mainstream and enthusiast-class SSDs. The second sticking point was pricing, given that these SSDs use the PCIe 3.0 interface offering sequential reads and writes of 3,500MB/sec and 2,700MB/sec,... Read more...
Intel went on a bit of a storage blitz today at its Memory and Storage 2020 event, unveiling a bunch of new generation enterprise and client SSDs that are mostly centered around its advancements in Optane memory. They include several updated storage products that make use of 144-layer NAND flash memory (QLC and TLC). What you see above is one of two client products, that being Intel's upcoming Optane Memory H20. It pairs 144-layer quad-level cell NAND flash memory in 512GB and 1TB capacities, with 32GB of 3D XPoint memory on the same M.2 module for an added speed boost. This is essentially a shift from churning out standalone Optane memory sticks, in favor of all-in-one (or hybrid) solutions,... Read more...
