Waiting to see tests if the new E18 controller does the same as the Samsung 980 - treat a chunk of the NAND as SLC, but have a bit of a write performance drop-off when the SLC area is done.

Been looking forward to drives based on this controller may pick one up to fill my 2nd m2 slot.

Since these are TLC drives i'm expecting it to be the same as current drives so sustained write hit should still be there. Unless they pull something new out of the hat.

From the article

"Samsung chose to go with TLC flash for its 980 Pro, a first for its Pro lineup, and it comes with surprisingly low endurance ratings. In contrast, aside from the E18's nasty performance, it also promises very high endurance capabilities as the company injected its fourth-gen LDPC ECC engine along with other data reliability tech. "

"Nasty performance" that is cute :)
