Intel releases the 750 Series SSD, its fastest consumer flash

Lucas Mearian | April 6, 2015
Intel today unveiled its first consumer-class solid-state drive (SSD) with a PCI Express 3.0 bus and non-volatile memory express (NVMe) high-speed host controller interface.

The 750 Series comes in two form factors: a standard 2.5-in SSD and a half-height, half-length add-in card. The 2.5-in SSD has a 15mm z-height, meaning it will fit in standard laptops, but not in ultrathins.

The 2.5-in version, typical for use in most laptops, will require a special cable and connector on a computer's motherboard to function correctly, an issue Intel said has addressed.

The 2.5-in model comes with a cable that connects to SFF-8639 PCIe at the drive and to Mini SAS (SFF-8643) at the motherboard. It has a SATA split off for power only.
