SSD has been around for some time. It has slowly replaced hard disk as an alternative to faster speed access. However SSD in mainstream desktop has been quite limited by the bandwidth of legacy SATA interface. To resolve the bottleneck, PCI Express based solutions appeared.
So, Intel and a number of companies in a consortium came out with a optimized interface to Flash NAND memory over the PCI Express bus to supercede the aging SATA technology. It is known as NVMe or NAND memory over PCI Express. and a number of companies involved in a consortium working group, have developed a more optimized, more native interface to Flash NAND memory over PCI Express, called NVMe or Non-Volatile Memory Express.
Last year, Intel introduced the first enterprise NVMe PCI Express SSD. To make it a success, it has to go for the mass market. Intel just launched their first consumer priced product called the SSD 750 Series. The new SSD 750 Series will retail for under $1 per GB, at 400GB capacities with an MSRP of $389 and a 1.2TB variant at $1029.
Both models will be available at AMAZON from 5 May 2015.
