Tech News: Intel DC S3700 Data Center SSD Review (200/800GB)

Recommended Posts



TITLE: Intel DC S3700 Data Center SSD Review (200/800GB)




LINK: http://thessdreview.com/our-reviews/s3700/










INFO: A few months back, we randomly heard three words during a

passing conversation; Intel, Taylorsville, and latency. That was it; no

context, no explanation and no hints. Given that we happened to be at the

Flash Memory Summit, it was a safe bet that something solid state was afoot,

but at the time these were just random words to file away for later. During

a phone call with Intel a few weeks later, it all made sense.


As it turns out, Taylorsville is Intel-speak for their third generation DC

S3700 enterprise SATA SSD offering. Packing a new Intel SATA III controller,

it was designed with consistently low latency in mind and not maximum

performance. As it turns out though, the S3700 isn't exactly a slouch in

that department, either. Intel has made some pretty bold performance claims

as well, including a staggering 15x improvement in steady state write

performance over Taylorsville's 3Gbps predecessor, the similarly-named 700
