Specifications & Features

HP is now offering no less than six versions of the S700 Pro with the Pro models have more endurance. which includes 120 GB up-to 512GB capacities. The sample that has arrived for testing is the 512 GB version of the drive. The S700 series as stated will be fitted with TLC written NAND flash memory from Micron's 3D NAND (vertically stacked) node. This allows HP to offer the proper storage volumes., the Pro models come with an added DRAM cache chip.

  • HP S700 PRO 128GB SSD
  • HP S700 PRO 256GB SSD
  • HP S700 PRO 512GB SSD
  • HP S700 120GB SSD
  • HP S700 250GB SSD
  • HP S700 500GB SSD

So instead of using Planar NAND, 3D NAND is used. 3D TLC NAND is physical vertical NAND cell stacking not to be confused with chip stacking in a multi-chip package. In 3D NAND, NAND layers, not chips, are stacked in a single IC. The good news is continued cost reduction, smaller die sizes and more capacity per NAND chip. Also, installed NAND toolsets in the wafer fabs can, for the most part, be reused, thereby extending the useful life of fab equipment. The NAND ICs are driven by a HP H6028 controller, there is a DRAM cache up-to 512MB.

  • Sequential reads/writes up to 565 / 520 MB/s on all file types

  • Manufactured to HP's high quality standards and fully tested and certified in HP Laboratories


I just pulled some numbers from some online e-tailers. HP is able to keep the prices okay, not yet cheap enough though. Prices are hovering at 210 USD for this 512 GB model on Newegg at the moment of writing this article.
