How SSD Technology Keeps Getting WORSE! - Intel 660p Review


The Intel 665P has DDR3L. DRAM in their controller help to increase endurance and input/output performance.

The 665P 2Tb due to the high density of memory chips you need to install of additional heat sink. This decrease temperature of the controller and memory. Some laptops or motherboards designed with additional cooling below or above the SSD to improve productivity during heavy loads.

The Intel 665P has write speed 2000 Mb/s, sequential read speed 2000 Mbps. NVMe operate on Silicon Motion SM2263EN controller and M.2 3.0 x 4 interface standard. The NAND flash memory type is Intel 96L 3D QLC.
