The SSD760p comes in a box that will certainly stand out on a crowded shelf, with a rainbow burst of colour along with the SSD series 7 branding. The rear of has a large sticker to the left with all the relevant drive details; capacity, serial number, product code etc. on it.
To the right of the label is a diagram showing the format of the drive under which sits a URL for Intel’s SSD webpage and the fact that the drive comes with a five year warranty.
Along with the Silicon Motion SM2262 controller there are two 256Gb 64-layer 3D TLC NAND packages (labelled 29F02T4AOCTH2) and a pair of Micron DDR4-2400 256MB cache chips (labelled 7JB77). The Silicon Motion SM2262 8-channel controller has a PCIe 3 x4 NVMe 1.3 interface and supports end to end data protection, AES and TCG Opal encryption.
Intel Toolbox SSD management utility is a pretty comprehensive tool for looking after your SSD. The home screen displays information about the drive, how the capacity is being used, its health and estimated life remaining.
There are seven buttons on the right hand side of the utility main screen. These are for Intel’s SSD Optimizer, two drive diagnostic scans, one quick the other full, secure erase, firmware updates, a system tuner and a page for system information.
