Intel 750 400GB NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 AIC SSD Review

TweakTown Rating: 96%Manufacturer: Intel



Version and / or Patch Used: 2.47



ATTO is a timeless benchmark used to provide manufacturers with data used for marketing storage products.




Sequential read transfers max out at 2.25 GB/s. Sequential write transfers max out at 1.00 GB/s.


Sequential Write




A gigabyte per second is very fast, but it's still the lowest maximum sequential write performance on our chart.


Sequential Read




We would like to see better small file sequential performance from the Intel drives. Our 3-drive array and both Samsung PCIe drives have much better small file sequential performance. The 750 Series drives are able to surpass both Samsung PCIe drives at a 1024k sequential transfer size and our array at 256k sequential transfers.



Anvil Storage Utilities


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0


Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSD's. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.








Random read performance up to QD16 is dominated by the Samsung NVMe drive, which is reflected by its very high read score. Random write performance is where the Intel's NVMe drives have a big performance advantage over Samsung's OEM PCIe SSD's.


(Anvil) Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale




Samsung's NVMe SSD has the advantage at QD1-32, at higher queues Intel's 750 Series SSD's distance themselves from the rest of the field.


(Anvil) Write IOPS through Queue Scale




At QD1-4 our 600 Pro array easily outperforms the PCIe drives. From there, the Intel drives leave everyone in the dust.
