Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P Series for Demanding Storage Workloads

Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P delivers breakthrough performance to meet the most
demanding storage workloads in your desktop or client workstations.

The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P is designed for the most demanding storage workloads in client systems, delivering high random read/write performance coupled with ultra-low latency and Industry-leading endurance. Built with Intel® Optane™ technology, a revolutionary class of non-volatile memory, the Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P is empowering professional users, content creators, and enthusiasts to extract greater platform performance.

Breakthrough Performance for Workstations
The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P delivers read/write performance optimized for client workstations. The performance and responsiveness of the SSD 905P means the processor can spend less time waiting and more time computing, resulting in greatly increased efficiency.

It provides exceptional random storage performance of up to 575K/550K IOPs (4K random reads/writes), and is complemented with low latency of less than 10μs.1 These key capabilities make the SSD 905P a highly responsive client storage solution. The SSD 905P also enables software developers to optimize applications to take advantage of the unique attributes of Intel® Optane™ technology: low latency, and high throughput at low queue depth.

New Possibilities with Higher Capacity
The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P introduces larger capacities allowing users to handle larger datasets to better extract the value of Intel® Optane™ technology with workloads that place heavy demands on the storage I/O subsystem.

Industry-leading Endurance
The ability to deliver these levels of performance with large and demanding workstation workloads also requires high endurance to ensure storage reliability.

The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P provides an industry-leading 10 DWPD, making it the highest endurance client SSD in the market today.2 Professionals with the most demanding storage workloads can now tackle even bigger projects with peace of mind, counting on years of performance without the need for frequent drive replacements.
