Intel 750 NVMe 400GB U.2 SSD Bootable RAID 0 Report

By: Jon Coulter | RAID in Storage | Posted: Apr 12, 2016 1:08 pm

Intel 750 NVMe 400GB U.2 PCIe Gen 3x4 NVMe SSD




In typical Intel fashion, the drive ships in attractive, protective packaging. The front of the mostly blue box lists the drive model, capacity, and sports a depiction of the drive within. Also depicted is the included mini-SAS to U.2 PCIe connector cable, and the required PCIe connector/adapter that is not included.





The back of the blue colored packaging lists sequential and random 4K performance specifications at each available capacity point. We note that the performance specifications listed are slightly lower than those given originally by Intel.




Contained within the packaging is the drive itself, a PCIe connector cable, and a CD containing warranty information and Intel's proprietary NVMe driver. The included PCIe connector cable is a U.2 to mini-SAS cable that also has an integrated standard SATA power connector to provide additional power to the drive.




The drive itself is a very attractive piece of hardware that exudes quality and craftsmanship. The enclosure is all aluminum alloy, natural in color; with a nice heft to it. The front face of the enclosure is emblazoned with a chrome Intel logo and a trademark swooped manufacturers label that contains all the particulars of the drive.




The bottom half of the enclosure is a solid cast aluminum passive heat sink.




Here are the components we used to create our bootable NVMe RAID array.
