Intel Reveals Its First PCI Express Solid-State Drives.
Intel Corp. has unveiled its new 910-series solid-state drives that are compatible with PCI Express bus and are designed to provide extreme performance, endurance and reliability for rigorous data center demands.
Intel 910-series solid-state drives are powered by Intel's multi-level cell NAND flash memory with high-endurance technology (HET) produced using 25nm process technology and will be available in 400GB and 800GB capacities. The SSDs utilize PCI Express 2.0 x8 interface and consume up to 25W while delivering performance significantly higher than that of 10K or 15K hard disk drives. Thanks to Intel HET, firmware and controller, the new drives allow up to 10 full drive writes a day for 5 years, or a 30 times endurance improvement over its standard MLC-based flash products.
Engineered for the most demanding environments, Intel 910 SSD 800GB provides up to 2GB/s sustained sequential read speed and 1GB/s sequential write speed (up to 1GB/s and 0.75GB/s for 400GB model, respectively); up to 180 thousand 4K random read input-output operations per second (IOPS) and 75 thousand 4K random write IOPS (up to 90K and 38K for 400GB model).
