Furthermore, these SSDs are aimed at the budget tier which means their mainstream marketing will gather a bigger audience. What this means is that these products will be great for consumer mobile and desktop platform. Intel themselves state that the 760P SSDs offer twice the speed at half the power consumption at a affordable price range.

In terms of performance, the intel SSD 760P has sequential read speeds of 3.23 GB/s and write speeds of 1.625 GB/s. The Random read speeds of these drives are up to 340K IOPs and write is 275K IOPs. Power consumption while the drive is active is rated at just 50mW and idle is rated at just 25mW. The endurance rate is 72TBW per 128 GB which should last a good amount of time with these drives. With up to 6 times the performance of a regular SATA drive at similar pricing, the new SSDs will also support a 5 year warranty and AES 256 bit self encryption for best quality and reliability.
