While many are skeptical about QLC memory, we assure you that Intel has done a bang up job in creating the Intel SSD 600p. It boasts some very good performance results and comes with a 5-year warranty and AES 256-bit hardware encryption support. At $0.20 per GB, it is a great buy for most. Be warned though, if you need a lot of write endurance, don’t skimp out. With 200TBW of endurance, our 1TB sample only has 1/6th the endurance of the 970 PRO and 1/3rd the endurance of most mainstream NVMe SSDs.

The Intel SSD 660p will shake up the low end of the NVMe market with very good performance at an unprecedented price, even though write speeds can drop precipitously to 100MBps when very large amounts of data are written to the drive, or when it begins to fill up. Note that the 512MB version offers significantly slower performance.

The Intel SSD 660p may not be a consumer class SSD leader in terms of absolute performance, but it does offer some serious bang-for-the-buck. Intel has set the MSRP for the 512GB Intel SSD 660p at $99 and the 1TB model at only $199. Those prices equate to about $0.19 per gigabyte, which is among the lowest prices we’ve seen for any SSD, let alone a modern NVMe drive that’s been tuned specifically for mainstream computing applications. And that’s assuming they sell at MSRP — many of Intel’s drives have street prices below MSRP at the moment.

It’s been ages since we reviewed a new client 2.5″ HDD, but last time we did, the 2TB drive posted 4K random read IOPS of a little under 100, where we’re looking at 60,000 with the 660p. And while the sequential tests we run today aren’t exactly the same as they were with the HDDs, the 660p puts up large block sequential reads of 225MB/s and writes of 77MB/s where the HDD saw about 115MB/s and 110 MB/s respectively. So in terms of the market Intel is looking to address with the 660p, they hit the target successfully. The 660p is designed to fill a need at the mobile bulk storage end of the spectrum and continues the attack on 2.5″ HDDs, who’s days are clearly numbered.

Intel’s SSD 660p is a bit of shock to the system. Not only is this NVMe drive the first Quad-Level Cell (QLC/4-bit) SSD on the market, which portends larger-capacity offerings, it’s faster during everyday use, and far cheaper—$200 for 1TB—than even the…

Intel has planted the QLC flag and has shown it to be good enough to displace TLC for most typical PC users. While QLC writes are slower than prior methods, the impact is effectively mitigated by the use of a large dynamic SLC cache. The SM2263 is…
