  1. Performance measured using IOMeter* with Queue Depth 32. Measurements are performed on 8 GB of logical block address (LBA) range on a full SSD.
  2. Random 4 KB read/write performance using an out-of-the-box SSD.
  3. Based on the Intel® Solid State Drive product specification. See product page for more information.

Hard Disk Drives (HDD) use a mechanical arm to move around and read information from a spinning platter. By contrast, there are no moving parts to Solid State Drives (SSDs). In addition, SSDs use non-volatile memory, which simply means that when the memory is turned off it won’t “forget” what was stored. So, if you want storage that leads the pack for performance, stability, and efficiency, an SSD should be your pick.
