NVM Express Comes to the Client – New Levels of Performance for Gaming and Other Enthusiasts!


We’re very excited to see NVMe being introduced into the client. Intel just launched the 750 Series SSD, which utilizes four lanes of PCIe Gen3 to deliver the highest levels of storage performance the client PC has ever seen. Check out what a few reviewers are saying:

  • “There’s not much else to say. NVMe seems to have achieved its goal of making PCIe drives just as painless as their SATA peers. We had no issues with installation or testing. No bugs, no glitches, no failed boots.” Digital Trends
  • “When I first created these charts, I spent a few minutes making sure I had not entered the wrong data. This is just downright embarrassing for the rest of the field.” PC Perspective 

OEMs are ensuring that end users can take advantage of the performance of NVMe. Check out these announcements from Asus, MSI and Gigabyte:
