Intel Launches Data Center SSDs with NVMe + 8 Lanes of PCIe 3.0

Intel introduced its highest performance SSDs for the data center to date.

The Intel SSD DC P3608 Series with NVMe leverages eight lanes of PCIe 3.0 to eliminate bottlenecks.

The drives feature a unique NVMe dual-controller architecture that allows efficient scaling with Intel Xeon Processors with multiple cores, evenly distributing the IO of up to 850K random read IOPS while the PCIe 3.0 x8 link enables data transfers of 5 GB/s.

The Intel SSD DC P3608 Series is available in capacities of 1.6TB, 3.2TB, and 4TB in a single PCIe 3.0 x8 low-profile add-in-card.
