SSDs are based on QLC 3D-NAND architecture

With the 660p series Intel is launching the first SSDs with QLC 3D-NAND-architecture on the market. They are characterised by a very high storage density and large capacities. The solid state drives in M.2 form factor with PCIe and NVMe are available with 512GB, 1TB and 2TB storage space from Rutronik UK.

Using PCIe 3.0x4 interface, the 660p series achieves read and write speeds of up to 1800MB/sec. The SSD handles 250,000 IOPS (Input/Output Operations per Second) for reading and writing.

It features AES 256-bit encryption and is compatible with Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology and SSD Toolbox as well as PCI Express Revision 3.1 and NVM Express Revision 1.3.

The 660p series offers an uncorrectable bit error rate (UBER) of <1 sector per 1015 bits read and a mean time between failures of 1.6 million hours.

With a JEDEC 218 workload, Intel guarantees a minimum runtime of five years for the memories.

A wide operating temperature range of 0°C to 70°C and a shock resistance of 1000G/0.5ms makes the SSDs also suitable for applications in demanding environments. The 660p series has dimensions of 80x22mm and a maximum thickness of 2.38mm.

It operates in active mode at 100mW and in passive mode at 40mW, the power management runs via PCIe ASPM (Active State Power Management) and NVMe APST (Autonomous Power State Transition).

Furthermore, the SSD comes with numerous certificates, including CE, UL, RoHS, Microsoft WHLK, BSMU, KCC and RCM.
