Test af Intel SSD 910 800GB PCIe
Intels top model inden for SSD eller Solid State Drives er deres Intel SSD 910 PCIe drev, der er en samlet RAID løsning til PCI Express x8. Her er det en kraftig 800GB version der skulle kunne levere op til 4GB data i sekundet, der bliver testet.
As Lars mentioned during his 910 SSD launch coverage piece, traditional SATA and SAS interfaces are becoming increasingly inadequate for high-performance SSDs and from Intel's SSD roadmap, PCI Express is the future interface for its high-end SSDs. The 800GB engineering sample that we have in our labs has three stacked PCBs (400GB only has two) and uses a 1U low-profile form factor (full length bracket included). Eight PCI Express 2.0 lanes provides up to 4GB/s of transfer bandwidth in each direction and the drive draws up to 25W by default and 38W in high performance mode.
