Drive Details - Intel 750 1.2TB NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 AIC SSD
In typical Intel fashion, the drive ships in an attractive, protective package. The front of the mostly blue box lists the drive model, capacity and sports a depiction of the drive within.
The back of the blue colored packaging lists sequential and random 4k performance specifications, model and serial number of the drive contained within.
Here are the contents. The drive is well protected inside a clear plastic clamshell container. Included is a half-height bracket and a CD with warranty information and Intel's proprietary NVMe driver.
The AIC version of the 750 series SSD we are reviewing has a full-length aluminum heat sink that covers the top half of a single PCB. There are aluminum channels and fins covered by a thin sheet aluminum facing emblazoned with an Intel logo, a trademark swoop and the model of the drive.
The bottom of the drives PCB is shielded by a piece of sheet aluminum. Removing the sheet metal shield exposes the bottom half of the drive's PCB. The half of the PCB we exposed is populated with 18-BGA packaged flash chips and two DDR3 1600MHz CL11 DRAM packages. We tried to remove the heat sink, but that was a no-go; even with the screws removed, the heat sink was still firmly attached so we did not force the issue. The unseen half of the PCB is populated by a single proprietary Intel PCIe controller in a 9-channel configuration, an additional (18) 20nm Flash IC's and three more DRAM packages.
Looking down through the middle channel of the heat sink and under the sheet aluminum facing, we can get a glimpse of an additional heat sink that dissipates heat generated by the drive's controller. Intel recommends a minimum airflow of 100LF per minute pass through these channels to keep the drive cooled.
