Intel 750 1.2TB NVMe PCIe SSD Review

Synthetic Benchmarks


HD Tune Pro

In this benchmark I am checking sequential reading speed.

With an average sequential reading speed of 2519 MB/s the Intel
750 NVMe  SSD gives an outstanding turn of speed. Also worth noting are the
incredibly fast access times.

Let’s see how this compares to other recently tested SSDs in
the table below.

The Intel 750 NVMe SSD has performed extremely well in the
HD Tune sequential reading test.

ATTO disk benchmark

ATTO has become a standard tool for measuring the data
throughput of HDDs and SSDs. It measures the reading and writing performance,
using different file sizes and block sizes.

The reading speed results for the Intel 750 NVMe 1.2TB SSD
are extremely impressive, topping out at over 2.68 GB/s, and writing speed is
also impressive topping out at over 1.35 GB/s.

Let’s find out how this compares with other recently tested
SSDs.

ATTO Reading performance

ATTO – Reading
performance at various block sizes

The Intel 750 NVMe SSD is the fastest SSD when reading data.

ATTO Writing performance

ATTO – Writing
performance at various block sizes

The Intel 750 NVMe SSD delivers excellent writing performance,
but it isn’t as fast as the OCZ REVODrive 350 when writing larger block sizes.


CrystalDiskMark 3.0

Crystal Disk Mark is quite a handy benchmarking application,
as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause a problem on a system drive.

As we can see from the above screenshots, sequential reading
and writing speeds are both extremely impressive, also random reading and writing
performance, at low and high queue depths, is outstanding.


AS SSD Benchmark

AS SSD benchmark is a benchmarking tool specifically
designed to test SSDs. The application tests sequential reading and writing
performance, 4K random reading and writing performance.

AS SSD benchmark also tests 4K threaded performance. This is
very exciting, as this test is the first available test that I am aware of,
that simulates how a PC operating system actually works. A modern PC and OS,
such as Windows 7/8 does not just run a single thread at a time, it runs many
threads. The AS SSD benchmark "4K 64Thrd" tests run 64 threads
simultaneously throughout the test. If this result is good, then you can be
pretty sure the drive will perform extremely well as a system drive.

After the tests complete, AS SSD benchmark derives a total
score for the drive being tested. This is based on all aspects of the test
results, and gives an indication of how the drive is performing overall.

Now let’s look at the result from the Intel 750 NVMe SSD in
the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison drives’ results are
presented in the form of a graph.

As we can see from the AS SSD test run, the Intel 750 NVMe
SSD has outstanding reading and writing performance, finishing in first place,
well ahead of the other SSDs in this test.

Summary:

The Intel 750 NVMe SSD has performed extremely well in the
basic synthetic benchmarks. Random reading and writing performance is extremely
impressive. Sequential reading and writing performance is outstanding.
