  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 Write endurance is measured while running 100% random 4 KB (4,096 bytes) writes spanning 100% of the drive using Iometer.
  4. Data encrypted with an AES 128-bit key and the pre-set ATA password protects the data in case of theft of the SSD, see Technology Brief: Data security features in the Intel® Solid-State Drive 320 Series
  5. Minimum Useful Life/Endurance Rating: The SSD will have a minimum of five years of useful life under typical client workloads with up to 20 GB of host writes per day.
