Intel 760p M.2 NVMe 512GB SSD Review
Posted by Damon Bailey on Thursday, June 28, 2018 - 8:00am
In the consumer PC world, Intel is a very well-known name, but not typically for storage. If you are familiar with Intel’s SSD offerings, you either work around datacenters, or more likely, you’ve had some time with one of the datacenter drives gone consumer known as the Intel 750 series. You know, the one everyone wanted to water cool a few years ago. More recently you may be familiar with some of the Optane offerings, but Intel now has SSD’s targeted squarely at the mainstream segment of the consumer market with the 760p series. Offered in M.2 form-factor with capacities ranging from 128GB to a whopping 2TB, this might just be your next SSD.
ProClockers would like to thank Intel for sending us the 760P SSD to check out!
Intel’s take on the 760p series SSD:
Accelerate your PC performance with the optimal PCIe bandwidth of the Intel SSD 760p Series. The Intel SSD 760p Series combines PCIe performance, versatile capacities, and high-quality Intel 3D NAND technology to deliver twice capacity, twice the performance, and up to 50% of the power consumption1 than its previous generation – the Intel SSD 600p Series.
The Intel SSD 760p features an M.2 thin profile with PCIe Gen3 x4, NVMe interfaces, and is ideal for a wide range of devices from desktops to laptops. The SSD is backed by a five-year limited warranty and Intel’s world-class quality leadership.
Performance to Handle Multiple Tasks
The SSD 760p is designed to effortlessly manage demanding consumer client applications and easily handle intense multi-tasking.
The SSD 760p accelerates platform performance with sequential reads of up to 3,230 megabytes, sequential writes of up to 1625 megabytes per second (MB/s), and random read and write input/output operations per second (IOPS) of up to 340K and 275K, respectively.
The SSD 760p enables PC users to experience enhanced efficiency with the applications they care about, and up to 6x better performance2 than SATA SSDs.
3D NAND Delivers Up to 2TB Capacity
The SSD 760p is part of the Intel 3D NAND SSD family of products. Built on Intel 3D NAND Technology, these SSDs are designed to transform the economics of storage.
The SSD 760p offers capacity points up to 1TB on single-sided M.2, and up to 2TB on double-sided M.2, enabling system designers the flexibility to design for thin/light systems or to provide space for other components.
The combination of Intel 3D NAND technology and PCIe enables Intel SSDs to push the limits of performance and value.
Performance at Lower Power
The SSD 760p provides extended battery life through low power modes. It reduces idle consumption by >90% compared to a typical hard disk drive, reducing power consumption from watts to milliwatts. When coupled with an 8th generation Intel Core processor-based platform, the advanced power mode settings reduce active and idle power consumption by up to 50% versus the prior generation device (SSD 600p Series).
Quality & Reliability You Can Trust
The SSD 760p is backed by Intel’s five-year limited warranty, including Intel’s world-class post sales customer support. The SSD 760p also supports AES 256-bit self-encryption to provide protection of critical data stored on the device.
