    Fast, furious, let's use superlatives here while we review the 750 NVMe 1.2 TB PCIe SSD. In certain scenarios we close in at 3 GB/sec speeds whereas 1 GB/sec writes can be considered normal. Priced ag...

    erm, lol?

    I had to check the date to make sure it wasn't the 1st of April...that is beyond insane speed.

    It's so fast, I'm betting someone will link the ludicrous speed youtube clip from space balls.

    Sure thing, its fast but it does comes with premium price. 1,08€ / GB is just damn expensive.

    One of these work on X58?

    Unbelievable !!!!!!!

    This is simply unbelievable performance from an SSD. Good review form Hilbert.

    Great review!
    Just a little typo on page 2. :nerd:

    This is probably one of the biggest performance leaps in PC hardware industry for quite a while, I know the price is crazy right now, but so are the gains and it's only the start. What Intel did was to create a stock flagship, which will I'm sure be refined by other manufacturers in the not so distant future. I can already see some crazy good looking shrouds and PCB colors on these SSDs, to fit for those fancy windowed cases. :eyebrows:

    This monster (or another version of it) is most certainly on my wishlist for my next build, it's a huge jump and Intel knows it.

    Ah yes, 800 MB would suck huh ? :) Fixed, thanks ...

    My god these speeds make me so horny. My next from-the-scratch build will have one of these for sure. :stewpid:

    Hilbert, can you guys get your hands on a Samsung SM 951 SSD for the next review, so we can compare it to to the Intel 750 SSD, thank you.

    That it would, but on the bright side, at least every copy and delete would be pretty much instant. :D

    How much of the PCIe bandwidth do these take and how would these affect gaming or if you have like a sli/xfire setup? I know that during gaming a lot of drive reading isn't required but if there was something in background using the sd would if affect the fps or something? Just qurious.

    That's not out yet, I know it's in volume production though. But sure, I'll try to get a sample on that one once available.

    Speed of this monster is just insane, but dat price for 1.2TB model... :(

    atm I'm more than satisfied with performance and capacity of my Intel 520 120GB SSD just for OS, drivers and most used programs.

    Few years from now guess that speed furies like this Intel 750 1.2TB will become common thing in world of SSD storage, and much more friendly for the wallet of all of us.

    I was thinking the same, what if mobo or 3rd party PCIe SATA3 controller doesn't have UEFI, Hilbert?

    Also... X58 has just SATA2 ports, even with latest UEFI capable 3rd party PCIe 2.0 based SATA3 controlers there is no way we can expect R/W speed like those we are seeing here in Hilbert's review.

    In theory it would work, but you'd run into challenges.

    1) No UEFI means it is not bootable. If used as secondary storage unit, that would work.
    2) You cut the peak bandwidth in half

    PCI-Express 2.0 sends 500 MB/s per direction & lane -- PCI-Express 3.0 brings that number towards 1 GB/s per direction per lane. This card uses 4 lanes thus PCI-Express 3.0 = Max 4 GB/sec and PCI-Express 2.0 would cut that in half to 2 GB/sec.

    You'd still see insane speeds, but with a certain drop-off in read perf and + not bootable + more limited with complex workloads where you read and write at the same time.

    So above you can see PCI-Express 3.0

    And here you can see PCI-Express 2.0

    It's tech like this that is seriously getting my upgrade itch going...

    Cheers, boss. Probably need to find some other solution then. I've seen a few PCIe SSD adapter cards capable of RAID 0, that'd give me close to 1 GB/s. Either that or 6 x small SSDs in RAID 0 on the ICH10R would get CLOSE to that.

    Excellent choice on the image :D.

    Those are insane speeds, nice to see SSDs progressing.

    Another great review, Hilbert!
    Wasn't it Intel that said something like, there's no longer a limit as to the size of SSD's?
    I was just wondering, what is the price difference between a piece of green PCB and a matching piece in black, or other colors?
    Is cost of materiel the limiting factor in using different colors of PCB's, or is there some other reason manufacturers choose to go with the all too common green PCB?
