660P (1Tb) produced by Intel support previous bus standard that is significantly slower than PCIe 4.0. The sequential write speed is 1800 Mbps, that is slower than has most of competitors. The Internal SSD has endurance 200 TBW, that is bad against competitors. After evaluating all the facts, Intel 660P 1Tb has more disadvantages and our site do not advise to have it.
- Slow writing speed
- PCIe 3.0
