We just wanted to let our community know what we have been working on behind the scenes and this is just a quick look at a couple of the new things that we are doing. The new SSD test system will be heavily used in the months ahead and we look forward to...
High performance storage is in transition as the industry is beginning to adopt the PCIe 4.0 standard. For now, the biggest change consumers will see is even faster NVMe SSDs on offer. This comes as a result of PCIe 4.0 providing double the data rate of t...
There isn't much in the way of storage that can touch the maximum speed that Thunderbolt 3 can deliver and keep pushing the data at that speed, but the Akitio Node Lite with Intel Optane SSD and Thunderbolt 3 comes very close —without thermal slowdown.Aki...
If you have a workstation or a server with U.2 drive bays or PCIe AIC card slots, just get the larger form factors. For workstation and mobile users, there are better consumer drives that have more capacity out there. 380GB is still fairly small for moder...
Intel's eyeblink-fast Optane SSD 905P, an internal SSD tested as a PCI Express card, is for extreme power users who can stomach its wildly high pricing and truly leverage its field-leading endurance and speed...
Screaming-fast for specialized consumer PC tasks, Extremely high endurance rating, Available in U.2 and PCI Express form factors,
Very expensive on a cost-per-gigabyte basis, Relatively low capacity, High power consumption for an SSD
The Intel SSD 905P is one of the fastest NVMe drives we've tested, and one of the most expensive. But that's because it's rated to be very durable. If you write a lot of data, that's a selling point worth considering...
Excellent overall performance, Exceptional small file, queued, and threaded performance, Incredible longevity (claimed)
Pricing is listed as 'currently unavailable' for this new capacity, but an early number we saw in passing was $2199, which comes to $1.47/GB, which is a bit on the high side compared with lower capacity models we have previously tested.The same exact perf...
Best random performance seen to date, Improved sequential performance over 900P, Still amazing 10-drive-writes-per-day endurance, I'm not one for LED lighting, but this one looks sharp
The Intel Optane 900P was one of the first drives we've reviewed that utilised the U.2 connector as opposed to the more common M.2 format, and it had a huge IOPS rating and some pretty decent speed, making it perfect for very specific task requirements. I...
The Intel Optane SSD 905P isn't a drive for everyone, but it's the fastest SSD we've ever tested. The price will keep most away, but the performance in the right hands, and applications, can increase productivity. We're not too upset about the cost be...
Leading random read performance, Exceptional mixed workload performance, LEDs to light up your PC, Unreal user experience,
Cost ($1300 MSRP), No GUI LED control, No 960GB U.2 model
Intel Optane SSD 905P Solid State Drives - Find Them At AmazonPerformance is an obvious strong point with the Intel Optane SSD 905P, but its endurance is far superior than any NAND-based SSD as well. Intel has also injected some welcome personality into t...
Killer Performance, Good Looking, Awesome Endurance Rating, 5 Year Warranty
Expensive, Trails High-End NAND-Based Drive With Sequential Transfers
NVMe SSDs are finally going mainstream, and the days of having only one or two choices are happily behind us. With more than a dozen NVMe drives now released, including some that successfully flirt with budget pricing, if you have a system that supports N...
