Intel 750 U.2/AIC SSD RAID0 (X3) Report – 5GB/S & 750K IOPS

REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS

Right off the bat, let’s eliminate any question as to whether our tests in this report could be considered valid for anything but to see what we speeds we could attain.  There is no steady state testing involved and we simply wanted to put forward a brief report on some of the results we attained playing around in the lab. Having said that…

The strength of NVMe in SSD storage is evident. Where today we were able to reach 5.3GB/s throughput and 755,000 IOPs with three SSDs, it took eight HGST enterprise SSDs to reach a slightly higher result less than two years ago. The difference, of course, is that these are retail SSDs that the consumer has easy access to. Without a doubt, Intel has marked its place as an innovator in storage and has made NVMe available for the consumer where it will take many others some time to accomplish same.

Today’s look at solid state technology has actually taken on a very interesting look from just a few years back. NVMe is being proven to be tomorrow’s technology today and both Intel and Samsung have introduced NVMe solutions to enterprise, oem and retail. Although this will filter to third-party vendors eventually, both companies seem to have taken a stronghold in an industry that has been push and shove for some time. As much as the fallout has been some hardware manufacturers moving away from SSDs, amazing performance at lower prices is a boon for all with no stop in sight. Who knows… perhaps declining HDD sales will be next.

Just a great article! Really good job on the test. I thought the DMI 3 speed of 3.93 GB/s would affect performance, and yet it didn’t. How come?

because they used 1 pcie ssd which is connected to the cpu directly
the other 2 are connected through dmi

Guys, I believe: 1) [b]ATTO READ results are victim of 32bit overflow [/b]. 1024kB block show result of 4053109kB/s (=4GB/s), 2048kB block size only shows 700729kB/s caused by the 32bit overflow. This is AFTER it crossed 4GB/s threshold (2^32 = 4194304kB/s) so the TOTAL write speed in fact was 4GB/s + 0.7GB/s = 4.7GB/s. As I say, ATTO can NOT count with bigger than 32bit numbers internally, so that’s the reason why it only displays 0.7GB/s instead of what it should be 4.7GB/s. The same thing applies to 4096kB and 8192kB block size results, they SHOULD be 4.96GB/s and 4.99GB/s.… Read more »

We’re starting to hit the really intoxicating performance levels here. When you consider that you can get 2 800Gb units for about $800 and RAID0 them that’s a damn bargain.

It’s interesting how Intel can provide 3 new 750s for a raid 0 review, but can’t provide 1 mainstream 535 2.5 ssd for review to any site and it’s been out for a while now.
