Intel Shows off a NVMe PCI-e SSD


At PAX east Intel has been showing off a prototype of a NVMe SSD running over PCI Express. Intel say that this SSD can run at over 4x the speeds of a traditional SATA drive, which already run at speeds of around 550MB/s.

Intel have yet to reveal the type of memory chips they are using for this SSD or their manufacturer. Intel said that this drive will release at some point in 1H15 and that it will be available in sizes of 400GB and 1.2TB, though a 8--GB variant is being considered internally.

here is a video showing the SSD from the guys at gamernexus.



Intel is currently got a timer running on their website which says that "THE NEXT REVOLUTION IN SOLID-STATE DRIVES IS COMING.....". The timer currently says that there is 22 days and 10 hours left to go, the question now is will this revolution start with a version of this SSD Intel have shown at PAX.

Intel has yet to confirm the pricing or availability of their NVMe SSDs.

Well considering some PCI-E SSD's on the market now can hit 2000MB/s but cost a metric butt ton these will definitely have to be very competitive in pricing.Quote

I have kept my eyes on these type of SSD's for a long time, however, I doubt you could activate SLi when you use one of these, pretty much my only complaint apart from the high prices.Quote
