If you look at the overall performance curve there's a very tight distribution of IOPS as the P400e is able to quickly burn through clean blocks in its spare area.

The old binary tree was very space efficient, while the new array is just huge.

Intel SSD DC P3700 Review: The PCIe SSD Transition Begins with NVMe

by Anand Lal Shimpi |
I long for the day when we don't just see these SSD releases limited to the enterprise and corporate client segments, but spread across all markets - from mobile to consumer PC client and of course up to the enterprise as well.
Micron seems to have optimized the P420m for operation at higher queue depths while Intel focused the P3700 a bit lower.

Intel SSD DC S3700 Review: Benchmarking Consistency

by Drew Riley |
Available capacities were small, though, and the drive was extremely expensive throughout its life.
So, in the span of a year, what you pay per gigabyte of capacity dropped nearly 65.

The Intel SSD DC S3700 (200GB) Review

by Anand Lal Shimpi |
Compared to a hard drive, even though some of these max latencies may even make an SSD temporarily slower than a hard drive, the overall SSD experience is still good enough to justify the move.
The old binary tree was very space efficient, while the new array is just huge.
