Product Overview Maximize your computing experience with the fastest consumer Intel Solid-state drive to date. The Intel Solid-state drive 730 series is built with a specially qualified 3rd generation Intel controller. Performance optimized firmware and 20nm Intel NAND Flash Memory take it a step further by factory overclocking these components for a 50% increase in controller speed and 20% increase in NAND bus speed.

Optimized for the most demanding tasks, including digital content creation and extreme gaming, the Intel Solid-state drive 730 Series delivers low 50µs read latency, up to 550 MB/s sequential reads and random reads up to 86,000 IOPS.

"Given Intel's track record and the best-in-class endurance, the SSD 730 is best for the no-compromise enthusiasts and professionals who really need a reliable and consistent drive." AnandTech

"The 730 Series offers nearly the same performance and still has a very high endurance rating. The combination makes for a very good prosumer drive where a solid all-around drive is required." TweakTown

"There's something very cool about a hot-clocked server SSD, even if its benefits will be lost on most users-and obscured by the hefty price tag. The 730 Series may be difficult to recommend to a broad audience, but like a lot of high-end PC parts, it's also pretty awesome." The Tech Report

"At launch, the new Intel SSD 730 Series makes a very good internal drive choice for your computer, but it'll become a better value when its street price drops below the current suggested retail price." CNET

"The new Intel SSD 730 series solid state drive is an excellent performer. In most of the tests we ran, the drive put up some of the best scores we've seen from a SATA SSD." Hot Hardware

"Looking to dump your mechanical driver in favor of a super-fast SSD? If so, Intel just announced something that might be right up your alley. And oh, by the way, it looks pretty metal - at least as far as PC components go." Digital Trends

"Today, Intel announced it would not release a user-customizable SSD after all. Instead, it is opting instead to push the processor clock speed on its next-generation SSD, the 730 Series, to its limit in the factory and then offer it with its typical 5-year warranty." Computerworld

"Equipped with a controller that has had its feet on the ground for some time and is proven reliable, high endurance of 70GB writes per day for the five-year warranty of the SSD, along with great performance and a fair introductory price, make it a very easy recommendation on our part. We have elected to award the Intel SSD 730 our Gold Seal." SSD Review

"Beyond raw performance, these drives are built for the long haul. Intel backs the drives with a 5-year warranty and states they can withstand up to 70GB of writes per day, which makes them particularly attractive for content creators working with 4K video." Maximum PC

"More interesting is the write cycle spec for the drive. If these drives can really take 70GB of writes a day and still last five years, the cost of adding an array of SSDs to your video editing workstation just dropped." Tested

"It's clear that many smart individuals have determined how to best extract enthusiast-class performance out of what was already a rock-solid enterprise-oriented SSD platform. What we end up with is useful speed, rather than inflated marketing numbers." Tom's Hardware FeaturesPerformance in a Flash: Less lag with 50µs read latencies and consistently high transfer rates and application loads with up to 550 MB/s sequential reads and 86,000 IOPS random reads
Data Center DNA: Extreme endurance of up to 70GB of writes per day, consistent performance across all data types, and RAID performance scaling beyond 1GB/s
Quality and Reliability: 3rd generation Intel Controller and 5-year warranty
