Performance values vary by capacity
Performance specifications apply to both compressible and incompressible data
4KB = 4,096 bytes; 8KB = 8,192 bytes
MB/s = 1,000,000 bytes/second
1PB = 1015 Bytes
Based on Random 4KB QD=1 workload, measured as the time taken for 99.9 percentile of commands to finish the round-trip from host to drive and back to host
Measurement taken once the workload has reached steady state but including all background activities required for normal operation and data reliability
Based on Random 4KB QD=32 workload, measured as the (IOPS in the 99.9 th percentile slowest 1-second interval)/(average IOPS during the test)
If both 12V and 5V power supplies are present, defaults to 5V+ 12V power supplies. Does not support 12 volt only.

2.5.1 Thermal Throttling
Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 Series will provide performance throttling during high temperature scenarios to
mitigate thermal challenges. Thermal throttling works by moving the power ceiling in N number of linear steps as
shown in Figure 1.
Key definitions for important parameters are:
-Tstart – throttling starts
-Tmax – max throttling is applied
-Pmaxdrop – maximum drop allowed determined by the internal setting
-Thysteresis – 2C comes into play during the cooling phase to prevent rapid oscillations between the throttle
states. The temperature must hit the hysteresis level to return the power ceiling back to previous levels.

2.5.2 Boundary Condition
To maintain SMART temperature BEh in the operating range, the following air flow conditions are provided as an
estimate.
Figure 2 shows the operating domain curve measured for 240GB, 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, and 3.84TB. The curves
show allowable air inlet temperature vs. Flow Velocity (LFM) to prevent throttling of the drive. Workload used to
characterize the operating domain curve is 128K Sequential Writes, Queue Depth 32 after the drive reaches steady
state.
For example: on a DC S4500 Series 240GB SSD for a LFM of 200, the maximum inlet air temperature should be
maintained below 53° C to prevent the drive from throttling (power or performance reductions). This test data is
obtained by characterizing drive temperature response in a wind tunnel with drives spaced 3mm apart, as shown
in Figure 3 using a system configuration of Asus* X99 MB, Windows* 7, and IOMeter* v1.1.

Uncorrectable Bit Error Rate (UBER)
Uncorrectable bit error rate will not exceed one sector in the
specified number of bits read. In the unlikely event of a nonrecoverable read error, the SSD will report it as a read failure to
the host; the sector in error is considered corrupt and is not
returned to the host.
< 1 sector per 1017 bits read
Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
Mean Time Between Failures is estimated based on Telcordia*
methodology and demonstrated through Reliability
Demonstration Test (RDT).
2 million hours
Power On/Off Cycles
Power On/Off Cycles is defined as power being removed from
the SSD, and then restored. Most host systems remove power
from the SSD when entering suspend and hibernate as well as
on a system shutdown.

Temperature Sensor
The Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 Series has multiple temperature sensors with an accuracy of +/-2° C over a range
of -20° C to +80° C. However a Composite Temperature will be reported as the Drive Temperature. Composite
Temperature is an artificial measurement that represents the minimum delta of any temperature monitored
component to its unique warning limit, normalized to be a delta from 70° C.
TempComposite = 70 – min(LimitA-CurTempA, LimitB-CurTempB, LimitC-CurTempC, … ,LimitN-CurTempN)
Drive Composite Temperature can be monitored using SMART attribute: Drive Temperature (BEh). The thermal
throttling of the drive is done based off composite temperature value. Worst case component temperature drives
thermal throttling of the drive.
2.9
Power Loss Capacitor Test
The Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 Series supports testing of the power loss capacitor, which can be monitored using
the following SMART attribute: (175, AFh).
2.10 Hot Plug Support
Hot Plug insertion and removal is supported in the presence of a proper connector and appropriate operating
system (OS), as described in the SATA 3.1 specification.
This product supports asynchronous signal recovery and issues an unsolicited COMINIT when first mated with a
powered connector to guarantee reliable detection by a host system without hardware device detection.
User Data is protected from planned or unplanned power loss by the Enhanced Power Management technology on
the Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 Series.
2.11 Hardware Based AES-XTS 256-bit Encryption Activated with ATA
Password
The Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 Series supports hardware based full drive encryption and protects all user data at
rest with AES-256 bit encryption. Access to user data on the drive can be authenticated at power-on using BIOS or
ATA Security Feature Set.

5.4.2 Timed Workload Endurance Indicators
Timed Workload Media Wear Indicator — ID E2h
This attribute tracks the drive wear seen by the device during the last wear timer loop, as a percentage of the
maximum rated cycles. This value should be divided by 1024 to get the percentage.
For example: if the raw value is 4455, the percentage is 4455/1024 = 4.35%. The raw value is held at FFFFh until
the wear timer (attribute E4h) reaches 60 (minutes) after a SMART EXECUTE OFFLINE IMMEDIATE (B0h/D4h)
subcommand 40h to the SSD. The normalized value is always set to 100 and should be ignored.
Timed Workload Host Reads Percentage — ID E3h
This attribute shows the percentage of I/O operations that are read operations during the last workload timer loop.
The raw value tracks this percentage and is held at FFFFh until the workload timer (attribute E4h) reaches 60
(minutes). The normalized value is always set to 100 and should be ignored.
Workload Timer — ID E4h
This attribute is used to measure the time elapsed during the current workload. The attribute is reset when a
SMART EXECUTE OFFLINE IMMEDIATE (D4h) subcommand 40h is issued to the drive. The raw value tracks the time
in minutes and has a maximum value of 232 = 4,294,967,296 minutes (8,171 years). The normalized value is always
set to 100 and should be ignored.
User Notes

Sending a SMART EXECUTE OFFLINE IMMEDIATE (B0h/D4h) subcommand 40h to the SSD resets and
starts all three attributes (Media Wear Indicator, Attribute E2h, Host Reads Percentage, Attribute E3h, and
the Workload timer, Attribute E4h to FFFFh.

The Attribute raw values are held at FFFFh until the Workload timer (Attribute E4h) reaches a total of 60
(minutes) of power on time. After 60 minutes, the Timed Workload data is made available.

After the Workload timer (E4h) reaches 60 (minutes), the Timed Workload data is saved every minute so
only 59 seconds of data is lost if power is removed without receiving ATA STANDBY IMMEDIATE.
Accumulated data is not reset due to power loss.

Upon power up, the attributes hold a snapshot of their last saved values for 59 seconds and live data is
available after 60 seconds, once the initial one hour interval is completed.
Example Use Cases
The Timed Workload Endurance attributes described in this section are intended to be used to measure the
amount of media wear that the drive is subjected to during a timed workload.
Ideally, the system that the drive is being used in should be capable of issuing SMART commands. Otherwise,
provisions have been provided to allow the media wear attributes to be persistent so the drive can be moved to a
SMART capable system to read out the drive wear attribute values.
Use Case 1 – With a System Capable of SMART Commands
1.
On a SMART capable system, issue the SMART EXECUTE OFF-LINE IMMEDIATE (D4h) sub-command 40h
to reset the drive wear attributes.
2.
Run the workload to be evaluated for at least 60 minutes. Otherwise the drive wear attributes will not be
available.
3.
Read out the drive wear attributes with the SMART READ DATA (D0h) command.

Intel Confidential
July 2017
336287-001US
Intel® Solid State Drive DC S4500/S4600 Series
Use Case 2 – With a System Not Capable of SMART Commands
1.
On a SMART capable system, issue the SMART EXECUTE OFF-LINE IMMEDIATE (D4h) sub-command 40h
to reset the drive wear attributes.
2.
Move the drive to the system where the workload will be measured (and not capable of SMART
commands).
3.
Run the workload to be evaluated for at least 60 minutes. Otherwise the drive wear attributes will not be
available.
4.
Do a clean system power down by issuing the ATA STANDBY IMMEDIATE command prior to shutting
down the system. This will store all the drive wear SMART attributes to persistent memory within the drive.
5.
Move the drive to a SMART capable system.
6.
Read out the drive wear attributes with the SMART READ DATA (D0h) command within 59 seconds after
power-up.
Example Calculation of Drive Wear
The following is an example of how the drive wear attributes can be used to evaluate the impact of a given
workload. The Host Writes SMART attribute (E1h) can also be used to calculate the amount of data written by the
host during the workload by reading this attribute before and after running the workload. This example assumes
that the steps shown in “Example Use Cases” on page 18 were followed to obtain the following attribute values:

Timed Workload Media Wear (E2h) has a raw value of 16. Therefore, the percentage wear = 16/1024 =
0.016%.

Timed Workload Host Read/Write Ratio (E3h) has a normalized value of 80, indicating that 80% of
operations were reads.

Workload Timer (E4h) has a raw value of 500. Therefore the workload ran for 500 minutes.

Host Writes Count (E1h) had a raw value of 100,000 prior to running the workload and a value of 130,000
at the end of the workload. Therefore, the number of sectors written by the host during the workload was
30,000 * 65,535 = 1,966,050,000 sectors or 1,966,050,000 * 512/1,000,000,000 = 1,007 GB.
The following conclusions can be made for this example case:
The workload took 500 minutes to complete with 80% reads and 20% writes. A total of 1,007 GB of data was
written to the device, which increased the media wear in the drive by 0.016%. At this point in time, this workload is
causing a wear rate of 0.016% for every 500 minutes, or 0.00192%/hour.
5.4.3 SMART Logs
The Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 Series implements the following Log Addresses: 00h, 02h, 03h, 06h, and 07h.
The DC S4500/S4600 Series implements host vendor specific logs (addresses 80h-9Fh) as read and write
scratchpads, where the default value is zero (0). Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 does not write any specific values to
these logs unless directed by the host through the appropriate commands.
The DC S4500/S4600 Series also implements a device vendor specific log at address A9h as a read-only log area
with a default value of zero (0). Besides that, the DC S4500/S4600 Series also implements log address B8h (if the
drive is in disable logical mode, log address B8h will have a failure code). Finally, the DC S4500/S4600 Series also
implements log at addresses B9h and BAh (both of them are Intel error logs, and read only for customers).

SMART Command Transport (SCT)
With SMART Command Transport (SCT), a host can send commands and data to an SSD and receive status and
data from an SSD using standard write/read commands to manipulate two SMART Logs:

Log Address E0h ("SCT Command/Status") — used to send commands and retrieve status

Log Address E1h ("SCT Data Transfer") — used to transport data
Intel SSD DC S4500/S4600 supports the following standard SCT actions:

Write Same — DC S4500/S4600 Series implements this action code as described in the ATA specification.

