- 256 GB Capacity
- M.2 22 x 80mm Form Factor
- PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 Interface
Takes desktops and laptops to a new level of responsiveness with fast application launches and file loading. The single-sided M.2 (80 mm) form factor, enables thinner and lighter systems or more space for other components.
Delivering performance that is up to 17 times faster than hard disk drives, and 3 times faster than SATA SSDs, you get faster boot, application-load, file-transfer, and copy times.1
Developed by the technology leader who deploys the most widely adopted processors worldwide, Intel has now developed advanced Intel® 3D NAND SSDs with PCIe* for greater performance at near-SATA prices.
Validated on a massive scale with thousands of configurations, and tested beyond industry standards, Intel® SSDs deliver an Annualized Failure Rate (AFR) that is eight times better than traditional hard drives. All featuring a 5-year limited warranty and amazing customer support.2
A small M.2 (80mm) form factor offers a wide range of capacities and simply plugs into M.2 - M key slots on major motherboards.
Performance Tests: Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such IOMeter, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. System Configuration: IOMeter* Test and System Configurations: Intel® Core™ i7-6700K 4.00Ghz(8MB L3 Cache), Gigabyte Z170X-UD5-CF Motherboard, Intel® HD Graphics 530 Driver 126.96.36.19900 . BIOS: American Megatrends F4, Chipset: Intel® Skylake Rev 07, Memory: 8GB(2x4GB) Corsair Vengence DDR4-3200, Microsoft Windows® 10 Pro v1511 using native NVMe storage driver.
