Intel SSD NVMe Drivers for Windows Mac
Intel SSD NVMe Driver
Intel's SSD p marks the debut of QLC flash for the consumer market. The new flash brings SATA-like pricing to the NVMe segment. Today, Intel is kicking that pace of innovation into a higher gear with the introduction of its SSD p family of NVMe Solid State Drives.

NVMe SSD Roundup Intel Optane, WD Black and Samsung Evo/Pro - TechSpot
The two most important benchmarks for a drive's performance are speed and latency. These categories are further broken down into sequential and random access patterns. Sequential results represent Intel SSD NVMe large files such as textures or videos that are stored together. On the other hand, random access represents loading many, typically smaller, discontinuous files such as when launching a game or booting an operating system.
My testing was done on the Z platform with a Core ik. Synthetic tests are typically done by accessing the drive under test from from another drive Intel SSD NVMe you are booted to.
Real world tests were done by installing the same Windows installation on each drive and conducting the tests locally. I used an Intel SSD P as my boot drive for the synthetic tests and also threw its results in for comparison.
It is an older drive and represents performance results from previous generation NVMe drives. This gives a good idea of how each drive performs with various files increasing in size from bytes up to 64MB. Small files are Intel SSD NVMe to process since there is more overhead for the controller. We can see that the Optane based drives generally reach their peak read speeds around k, sooner than the NAND based ones.
These are all considered top-of-the-line SSDs and we can see the wide range in their performance numbers. Writing to a drive typically happens less often than reading so manufacturers tend to focus Intel SSD NVMe their efforts accordingly.
The drives here are situated more closely than in the read tests and the gap between the Optane P line and the rest of the drives has widened. I certainly would have Intel SSD NVMe some better numbers here.

The Evo comes in third but gives some very interesting results. On to access time now. These results are important for system responsiveness and when applications need to Intel SSD NVMe many files. The faster the drive can respond to a request, the faster it can move to the next request in queue.

With the exception of the SSD P, all of the results are fairly close together. The Optane drives do come out on top by a slim margin. The 4K test measures the drive's Intel SSD NVMe reading or writing a 4K chunk of data. This is a relatively small file so it is difficult for drives to manage at high speeds.
The 4KThrd test Intel SSD NVMe the drive's performance reading or writing a similar 4K chunk of data, but this time running 64 threads concurrently.

This is also known as a queue depth of The third test I ran was sequential read and write which tests the drive's ability Intel SSD NVMe read or write a single large Intel SSD NVMe of contiguous data. The write tests don't really show a clear overall winner but the Pro is the most consistent drive so I'll give it the win here. The WD Black drive leads in sequential writes but comes in 4th at 4K with a 64 queue depth.
Among the top 4 drives, the standard 4K tests are all very close and could Intel SSD NVMe considered within margin of error. Here we see the Optane Intel SSD NVMe drive struggle compared to the rest of the field. The read tests are a little more well defined. The three Optane drive destroy the competition in 4K reads coming in at nearly 4 times the performance of the next closest drive.
The Optane P also leads in the 4K thread test by a sizable margin. In terms of pure sequential reads, the Optane drives slow down with the Intel SSD NVMe WD Black drives neck and neck for the lead. I'll hand the win for this one to the Optane P given its dominant 4K performance; something that more closely resembles a real world workload.
