Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.
To unseat the competition or speed a design to market, you need new levels of optimized storage performance. The Intel® SSD 730 Series delivers uncompromised performance by combining factory-tuned components with Data Center DNA.
We factory overclocked the controller by 50% and the NAND by 20% resulting in 50µs read latencies, consistently high transfer rates of up to 550 MB/s sequential reads, and up to 89,000 IOPS random reads. To unleash higher levels of performance and remove storage bottlenecks, put two or more Intel® SSD 730 Series drives in RAID 0 along with Intel® Rapid Storage Technology to achieve throughput of >1GB/s1,2.
Check out this video capture of our lab system demonstrating throughput gains with two Intel® SSD 730 Series drives in RAID 0.2 (Keep your music playing, there's no audio.)
Get full tech specs and discover how factory-performance tuning, data center endurance and dependability, and Intel quality come together in Intel's highest performance consumer SSD.

2. Internal Intel test results with Iometer* 2009. 10/22 on Intel® Core™ i7-4770K processor, Intel® Z87 chipset, 8GB PC3-10700, RST version 12.8.
"iBuypower is happy to announce pre-orders for systems including the new Intel SSD 730 Series. These drives combine enthusiast-grade performance with the endurance and dependability that has traditionally been reserved for data center storage products. In other words, it's the best of both worlds, and what that means to you is freedom from compromise."

"BOXX is pleased to announce that we are now accepting pre-orders for our standard 3DBOXX workstations, 3DBOXX XTREME workstations, and GoBOXX mobile workstations featuring the new Intel SSD 730 Series. Optimized for the most demanding digital content creation, these new SSDs deliver the ultimate in professional grade performance and reliability — just like BOXX."
—Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Bus. Dev.
"Intel is introducing the 730 as having 'Intel Data Center DNA' which it definitely does, overclocks the controller and memory, places a five-year warranty on it and then lets us know that the 730 can sustain up to 70GB writes per day for that five years of its warranty. We have elected to award the Intel SSD 730 our Gold Seal."
