Intel 750 PCIe SSD (1.2TB) Review – Unprecedented Performance for Under $1 Per GB!


AS SSD Benchmark uses incompressible data in their testing of SSDs, essentially providing results that would be consistent with using the heaviest workload, thus lower speeds are expected. Transfer speeds (MB/s) are seen in the left picture below and IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) are on the right.

Once put through AS SSD, the sequential read speeds reach up to 2,346 MB/s and the sequential write speeds reach up to 1,200 MB/s. Again this is a bit lower than we would have expected to see, but this is still a solid result. Overall, the Intel 750 PCIe SSD achieved a total score of 3674, very impressive! AS SSD also gives you an opportunity to ensure that you are using the correct driver. Take a look in the top left of the program and ensure that the IaNVMe is equalling ‘OK’.

Another interesting feature of the AS SSD Benchmark is that it also can test  durations and speeds of copying various files, this is an important test for our digital media professionals who require top transfer speeds.

As you can see above, the time for the Intel 750 to transfer an ISO file is a mere 0.66 seconds, these are truly incredible results.


Anvil Storage Utilities is essentially an all-in-one tool for all of your SSD benchmarking needs. Anvil can be used for basic consumer testing, as well as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests. It displays data regarding the SSD, and even about your system.

Our all-in-one benchmark tool, Anvil’s Storage Utility, returned sequential read and write results of 2,149 MB/s and 1,130 MB/s accordingly. This is similar to what we have seen previously.


Technology X uses benchmark software called PCMark Vantage x64 HDD Suite to create testing scenarios that might be used in the typical user experience. There are eight tests in all and the tests performed record the speed of data movement in MB/s to which they are then given a numerical score after all of the tests are complete. The simulations are as follows:

  • Windows Defender In Use
  • Streaming Data from storage in games such as Alan Wake which allows for massive worlds and riveting non-stop action
  • Importing digital photos into Windows Photo Gallery
  • Starting the Vista Operating System
  • Home Video editing with Movie Maker which can be very time-consuming
  • Media Center which can handle video recording, time shifting and streaming from Windows media center to an extender such as Xbox
  • Cataloging a music library
  • Starting applications


The Intel 750 PCIe SSD achieved a total, whopping score of 340243, which is flat-out incredible. Out of all the benchmark tests ran throughout the HDD suite of PCMark Vantage, the highest transfer speed recorded was 2,050 MB/s when video editing in Windows Media Center.

The Consumer Electronic Show is now done and overwith for this year, but the technology showcased, especially in the storage division, extends much from the drive we have on hand today. We are going to take an in-depth look at the Intel 750, the world's first consumer drive featuring NVMe at 2.4 GB/s! The Intel 750 features Intel's latest storage technology with an 18-channel NVMe flash controller. Before we get started, let us say this, from what we have seen with the Intel 750, it is not only fast, but the price is incredible as well! The Intel 750 is…
