Intel® Solid State Drive 730 Series
Data Center DNA
Performance Unleashed
Factory overclocked 3rd generation Intel controller infused with DNA stolen
from the Intel SSD Data Center Family.
Optimized for Performance
Maximize your computing experience
with the Intel® Solid State Drive (Intel®
SSD) 730 Series, built with a specially
qualified 3rd generation Intel controller, 20nm NAND and optimized
Intel has taken storage a step further by factory overclocking these
components to push the limits of
performance with a 50% increase in
controller speed and 20% increase in
NAND bus speed. Intel SSD 730 Series
are optimized for the most demanding
tasks including digital content creation,
video capture/editing, extreme gaming
and other client usages where storage performance improves the user’s
experience and efficiency. Applications
will benefit from the 50µs read latency,
up to 550MB/s sequential reads and
89,000 IOPs random reads.
730 Series + Intel® Rapid
Storage Technology = Amazing
Digital Content Creation experts and
PC Enthusiasts know the highest
storage performance is achieved
with RAID-0 configurations as SSDs
saturate the SATA interface. Comparing
two Intel SSD 730 Series drives in a
RAID-0 array to a single alternative
SSD, results in the same capacity
and nearly double the performance.
As shown below, two Intel SSD 730
Series drives in a RAID-0 configuration
can provide throughput numbers
exceeding 1000MB/s when coupled
with Intel platforms supporting Intel
Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST).
Similarly four Intel SSD 730 Series
drives in a RAID-0 array with an Intel®
chipset based platform can provide
performance exceeding 1500MB/s.
Internal Intel test results with IOMeter 2009. 10/22 on Intel Core i7 4770K, Z87 Chipset, 8GB PC3-10700, RST
version 12.8. For more information go to:

Intel Data Center DNA = Extreme Endurance & Performance Consistency
Product Spotlight
Intel® SSD 730 Series also delivers excellent endurance to support the needs of the
most demanding client usages. Support for up to 70GB writes per day for five years
(compared to the industry typical 20GB) provides piece of mind for digital content
creators and PC enthusiasts who demand dependable up-time from their workstations
and gaming rigs. The Intel SSD 730 Series drive also brings greater performance
consistency to the client market in both single drive and multiple drive RAID arrays.
Intel’s advanced firmware algorithms allow Intel to deliver client SSDs with “data
center” efficiency and dependability throughout the life of the drive.
•Intel® SSD Architecture designed and
optimized for leading client storage

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific
computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in
fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system
