Intel releases overclocked 730 Series SSDs

The US technology leader Intel has released new and overclocked solid-state drives that belong to the company’s 730 Series.

There are two models as of now with capacities of 240 GB and 480 GB. The newcomers make use of an 8-channeled Intel controller and use 20 nm NAND flash memory. The drives come with 1 GB of DDR3-1600 memory as cache and feature a memory controller that has been made to work at 600 MHz, which is 50 per cent faster than in other solid-state drives. The NAND flash memory interface runs at 100 MHz, instead of 83 MHz in regular SSDs. Thus the new drives reach 550 MB/sec of read speed and 450 MB/sec of write speed, 86 000 IOPS when reading and 68 000 IOPS when writing. The 730 Series SSDs also support RAID-0 that can substantially increase speed when two SSDs of the same class get combined.

The new Intel SSDs will sell for USD 240 and USD 480 for the 240 GB and 480 GB models, respectively.
