HP S750 SATA III SSD launching with up to 1 TB options and will weigh less than 50 grams
Produced by BIWIN for HP, the super-light S750 is looking to be a good fit for laptops and smaller PC builds where weight is crucial. The manufacturer is promising up to 560 MB/s and 520 MB/s sequential read and write rates, respectively, for all SKUs.
After having only recently launched the external HP P500 and P700 SSDs, the manufacturer will now be introducing the internal 2.5-inch SATA III S750 series designed for consumer use.
The S750 is notable for integrating 96-layer 3D NAND flash for denser storage per volume as opposed to the more standard 64-layer or 72-layer solution. This ultimately allows for lighter and more portable designs without sacrificing capacity. The S750 will be just 6.7 mm thick with a weight of under 50 grams for even the 1 TB SKU.
Annoyingly, HP has provided no exact availability dates or prices for the S750, but users can expect 256 GB, 512, GB and, 1 TB options to come soon.
(October 10, 2020 update: HP has provided a test sample for which we've provided our CrystalDiskMark 7 and AS SSD results below. The $89.99 retail box will come with screws and a small manual.)

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
