Intel has become the first hardware maker out of the gate with a consumer-level solid state drive based on 64-layer TLC 3D NAND. In layman’s terms, the technology allows for more storage space to be squeezed into fewer chips.

AnandTech got its hands on an early production unit and found the 545s to be a much better all-around performer compared to Intel’s own 540s. The publication notes that in some tests, the 545s appears to be the first serious challenger to Samsung’s 850 EVO in terms of performance and power efficiency.

Will be interesting to see where the price levels out at in comparison to Samsung 850 EVO/PRO .. and if it supports power loss protection (something the Samsung SSD's sorely lack).

I did a filtered search, over on the Intel site, and it does not appear to have power-loss protection.

As a matter of fact, NONE of their consumer grade SSDs have that feature.

Looks like the closest Intel $$D with power-loss protection would be their DC grade S3520 series ...

And, a filtered search on CDW ...

Isn't the 850 PRO the "boss", not the EVO ?
