Overview:


Performance Unleashed

Performance optimized 3rd Generation Intel controller with Intel Data Center DNA

The Intel® Solid-State Drive 730 Series delivers uncompromised performance by combining factory tuned components with Data Center DNA.

Optimized for Performance

Maximize your computing experience with the Intel® SSD 730 Series built with a specially qualified 3rd generation Intel controller, 20nm NAND and optimized firmware. Intel has taken storage a step further by factory overclocking these components to push the limits of performance with a 50% increase in controller speed and 20% increase in NAND bus speed. Intel SSD 730 Series are optimized for the most demanding tasks including digital content creation, video capture/editing, extreme gaming and other client usages where storage performance improves the user’s experience and efficiency. Applications will benefit from the 50µs read latency, up to 550MB/s sequential reads and 89,000 IOPs random reads.

730 Series + Intel® Rapid Storage Technology = Amazing Performance

Digital Content Creation experts and PC Enthusiasts know the highest storage perfromance is achieved with RAID-0 configurations as SSDs saturate the SATA interface. Comparing two 730 Series drives in a RAID-0 array to a single alternative SSD, results in the same capacity and nearly double the performance. As shown below, two 730 Series drives in a RAID-0 configuration can provide throughput numbers exceeding 1000MB/s when coupled with Intel platforms supporting Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Similarly four 730 Series drives in a RAID-0 array with an Intel® chipset based platform can provide performance exceeding 1500MB/s.

Intel Data Center DNA = Extreme Endurance & Performance Consistency

Intel® SSD 730 Series also delivers excellent endurance to support the needs of the most demanding client usages. Support for up to 70GB writes per day for five years (compared to the industry typical 20GB) provides piece of mind for digital content creators and PC enthusiasts who demand dependable up-time from their workstations and gaming rigs. The Intel SSD 730 Series drive also brings greater performance consistency to the client market in both single drive and multiple drive RAID arrays. Intel’s advanced firmware algorithms allow Intel to deliver client SSDs with “data center” efficiency and dependability throughout the life of the drive.
