Intel to present “overclocked” SSDs

Overclocking has come to solid-state drives too – in the next few weeks Intel will present the first “overclocked” SSDs that will belong to the upcoming Intel SSD 730 line.

The new line will consist of 2.5-inch SSDs that will be 7 mm thick and will be based on an in-house Intel controller that has been created for server SSDs as well as MLC NAND flash memory that will use 20 nm technology.

The most interesting feature is that the SSD controller will come with a factory increased controller frequency that will give some boost to performance. Thus the new SSDs will offer 50 per cent better performance and 20 per cent better bandwidth. Sequential read speed reaches 550 MB/sec while sequential write speed reaches 450 MB/sec, random 4K read reaches 86 000 IOPS while random 4K write reaches 68 000 IOPS. In addition SSD 730 will fully support RAID 0.

Initially Intel will release two models with capacities of 240 GB and 480 GB and later there will likely be a 120 GB model too. All SSDs will come with a 5-year warranty.
