Product Overview The Next Level of Consumer Computing
Optimize you computing experience with performance and reliability you can trust.

Intel Evolving Storage Technology
Introducing the Intel Solid State Drive 540s Series, Intel's latest evolution of solid state drives.

Designed for a range of devices from Ultrabooks to desktops and laptops, the Intel SSD 540s Series delivers a low-power storage solution to meet the performance, quality, and reliability requirements demanded by today's consumer devices. Additionally, the 540s Series offers increased value as Intel's first TLC-based drive in the Intel SSD 5 Series family.

TLC Done Right
Utilizing a uniquely architected combination of single level cell (SLC) cache and triple level cell (TLC) NAND Flash Memory, the 540s Series delivers an optimized balance of performance and value.

Flexibility for Any Solution
The 540s Series is the first Intel 5 Series drive to deliver up to 1TB of storage capacity.

Available in both the 2.5" and M.2 80mm form factors, and with storage capacities ranging from 120GB up to 1TB (1000GB), the 540s Series accelerates performance across a variety of computing devices.

Quality & Reliability You Can Trust
The 540s Series is backed by Intel's five year limited warranty, including Intel's world-class post sales customer support.

Accelerate Your Performance
The 540s Series accelerates platform performance with sequential reads of up to 560 megabytes and sequential writes of up to 480 megabytes per second (MB/s) and random read and write input/output operations (IOPS) of up to 78K and 85K respectively.

Performance that Matters
The 540s Series is architected to optimize performance for a 70%/30% 4KB random read/write mixed work load, the most utilized workload across common applications—delivering performance where it matters.

Charge Your Device Less Often
Managing tasks efficiently, the 540s Series reduces the drain on your battery. It reduces idle consumption by compared to a typical hard drive disk, reducing power consumption from watts to milliwatts. When coupled with a 6th generation Intel Core-based platform, the advanced power mode settings reduce power consumption another order of magnitude - from milliwatts to microwatts.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
