Intel Optane SSD 905P series
Chipmaker giant Intel introduces a new 3D Xpoint-based drive, Intel Optane SSD 905P series. The drive released by a couple of months back, but Intel worked to enhance performance in other ways.
The Intel Optane SSD 905P offered in two capacities and form factors. Include, PCIe-based Optane SSD 905P cards will access with a 960GB capacity, and also has 480GB U.2 2.5” drive. The two variants cost at $1299 US and $599 US.
While, Intel Optane SSDs also has exceptional ability ratings of 10 full drive writes per day, for a long time. Other, 960GB SSD 905P that equates to thousands of Petabytes of written over its lifespan.
The PCIe Express add-in Optane SSD 905P is reminiscent of Intel’s previous-gen, HHHL solid state drives. It features a half-height PCB with smooth heat plate on the back and raised-fin heatsink on the front. Intel did jazz things up a bit here with some lighting that dwells between the heatsink blades.
Intel Optane SSD 905P features
The Intel Optane SSD 905P features an Intel-built, multi-channel controller designed and tuned specifically for the 3D Xpoint media at the core of the drive. The controller is a similar one found on the SSD 900P and is used on the venture class DC P4800X.
In terms of power, the 960GB SSD 905P drive has a maximum power rating of 16.4W (burst), but idle power and dynamic read control are just 6W and 10.7W, individually.
The 2.5″ U.2 Optane SSD 905P is similar to the PCIe-based include card regarding its details. The U.2 drive also interfaces with a framework in an unexpected way, but other than that the foundational technology in the drive is identical.
The U.2 905P’s gap is smooth to finish everything, except it equipped with heatsink blades on the base, to help scatter warm.
While, Intel’s Optane drives and 3D Xpoint memory so different from other SSDs that use traditional NAND Flash memory.
