Intel launches new 96 layer 3d qlc nand ssd 665p

After announcing its latest QLC NAND storage solution in late September, Intel released the 665p SSD this week. The

Intel SSD 665p uses second-generation 96-layer 3D QLC NAND technology, inheriting the advancement from the existing 660p SSD released in summer 2018.

For beginners, QLC is short for Quad Level Cell, which actually means that NAND is layered into four-bit cells. This is a case of increased SSD density, so you can get more space, performance, and value at a lower cost.

In fact, the benefits are not so clear. The higher the number of bits per drive, the more costs you'll need, and the more costs will translate into slower performance, thus reducing the read / write cycles the SSD can handle without fading.

Although the lifespan of single and triple-layer drivers is significantly longer, Intel seems to be eager to bridge the gap with 64-layer QLC NAND 3D in 660p, so 665p SSD. Intel

said it provides 1.5 times more performance and better durability than 660p, up to 50% at 660p.

In practical applications, for ordinary consumers, the benefits will not be very prominent, but it represents that Intel has taken a step in the right direction. The

SSD 665p uses PCIe 3.0 × 4, NVMEe interface, has an M.2 22 X 80MM form factor and has a sequential read speed of up to 2GB per second and a sequential write speed of up to 2GB per second. .

As for writing, there is a 1TB 665p SSD and a 2TB variant is planned for next year. For the price of these two models, we don't have a definitive answer yet, but the SSD 660p retail price is much lower than $ 100, so we expect at least 1 TB SSD 665p to follow suit.
