Intel debuts the SSD 600p solid-state drive line

Intel has enhanced its SSD portfolio with the addition of an entirely new SSD line – the SSD 600p. The new lineup has four models inside with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. All new SSDs also sport the M.2 2280 form factor.

The idea behind the SSD 600p is to offer PCIe speed for the price of a regular SATA solid-state drive. The SSD 600p SSDs can be connected to a computer via a PCI-E 3.0 x4 slot. They use TLC NAND flash memory and are based on the Silicon Motion SM2260 memory controller. Speed-wise, here’s what to expect – the 128 GB model reads at 770 MB/sec and writes at 450 MB/sec, offering 35K IOPS of random read and 91K IOPS of random write. The 256 GB model reads and writes at 1570 MB/sec and 540 MB/sec, respectively and reaches 71K/112K IOPS when reading/writing. The 512 GB model reads and writes at 1775 MB/sec and at 560 MB/sec, reaching 128.5K IOPS when reading and 128K IOPS when writing. The 1 TB model reads and writes at 1800 MB/sec and at 560 MB/sec, respectively, and reaches IOPS of 155K and 128K when reading/writing.

The new Intel SSD 600p solid-state drives sell for USD 70 (128 GB), USD 105 (256 GB), USD 190 (512 GB) and USD 360 (1 TB).
