The Intel 670p lineup is replacing the previous 665p SSD lineup. Intel has continued to offer QLC NAND in the market at aggressive prices.

  • PCIe 3.0×4, NVMe
  • 80mm (single-sided) 2280-S3-M 512GB, 1TB, 2TB
  • 144-layer, Intel 3D NAND
  • Active: 80mW, Idle: 25mW
  • 0 °C to 70 °C operating temperature
  • 5 year warranty

Intel QLC technology and industry leadership brings the performance and capacity needed for today’s PC storage needs, including performance storage and the ability to manage high volumes of data. Now available is the Intel SSD 670p 144-layer QLC-based Client SSD. Roadmaps for moving beyond 144-layer suggest as many as 500 layers may be possible with more work in design.

With up to 2TB capacity on a single drive, the Intel SSD 670p offers great value for everyday computing, optimized productivity and mainstream gaming. The thin M.2 80mm form factor is powered by Intel’s innovative QLC technology and perfect for notebooks, desktops and mobile devices.

The Intel SSD 670p includes the latest QLC technology with numerous performance improvements, including nearly 2x sequential read and a 20% endurance improvement compared to the previous gen Intel QLC 3D NAND SSD.1 Now, a capacity-optimized SSD with NVMe (or PCIe) performance offers the right balance for everyday computing needs.

Intel QLC Technology offers performance, high capacities, quality and reliability. The innovative floating gate architecture has tight, symmetrical layers and no cell overhead. Additionally, this dynamic architecture changes cell configuration to meet customer demands for storage capacity and performance. The result is high capacity storage at an affordable price to accelerate SSD adoption.

The endurance of QLC SSD is not as good as TLC NAND but in general use there is not much to worry about s long as the larger capacity is leveraged to have lots of free space for block wear leveling.
