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

LINK: http://thessdreview....-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
