Remember what matters for desktops is QD1 IOPS performance. One reason why Optane SSDs feel that much faster than NVMe SSDs despite being on PCIe 3.0 is due to the extremely high QD1 performance. If Samsung can hit the 60k write IOPS at QD1, then that SSD will feel much faster.About time! One of the first PCIe 4.0 Drives that i was was Inland of all brands! I even bought one for a buddy (1TB Version and every Benchmark i there at it it came within 100MB or less of its solicited speeds! (5000 Read 4300 Write) and damn. Normally a SATA vs NVMe SSD (Gen 3) i hardly see a difference. But that PCIe 4.0 NVMe with a Ryzen 7 3700X was INSANE. Like i felt it would open a window before i clicked on it, it was that responsive. I hope Samsung can deliver that same felling
TBW.They went TLC and half of the endurance at 600 TBW from the 1200 TBW for the 970 pro drive.
If I look to put in a second m2 drive in my system it will be something based on the Phison E18 controller.
TBW is very important when you buy used Nvme SSD from ebay , Even if one's personal use does not reach TBW , it is still a factor when you sell it on ebay and upgrade . I cant sell my NVME drives on ebay because of the low TBW.
I know what mine reports.Are you asking for how many writes you have done or what is the TBW on your own SSD?
That's why I don't buy used drives.TBW is very important when you buy used Nvme SSD from ebay , Even if one's personal use does not reach TBW , it is still a factor when you sell it on ebay and upgrade . I cant sell my NVME drives on ebay because of the low TBW.
My 7 year old desktop has 2x 240GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSDs in it. One SSD has the OS and a couple games the other has more games and VMs. For writes they are at 9.8TB & 2.4TB respectively when viewed in the Corsair SSD Toolbox. I haven't used the desktop a lot more since working at home became a thing, but still don't do tons of writes to the disk. I also have no idea what the absolute TBW of those drives are, but even if it is something like 50TBW I am no where close to getting there.I know what mine reports.
Its just that people glom on to that 600 or 1200 or whatever number.
In reality...I have yet to see a regular consumer get anywhere near that.
As reported by CrystalDiskMark and Samsung Magician, my current C drive (500GB 850 EVO) is at 47TBW. POH of 34610. Just shy of 4 years, running almost 24/7.
All 7 drives combined are about 85.
Dismissing something because the warranty number is "only" 600TBW and not 1200 is meaningless, if you will never ever get anywhere close to that.
And that is my point exactly.My 7 year old desktop has 2x 240GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSDs in it. One SSD has the OS and a couple games the other has more games and VMs. For writes they are at 9.8TB & 2.4TB respectively when viewed in the Corsair SSD Toolbox.
But they are calling it 3 bit MLC so is it not a lie?
Triple-level cells (TLC) and quad-level cells (QLC) are versions of MLC memory, which can store 3 and 4 bits per cell, respectively. Note that due to the convention, the name "multi-level cell" is sometimes used specifically to refer to the "two-level cell", which is slightly confusing.
Its TLC that is just Samsung marketing!What is 3 bit MLC?
Is it MLC or TLC, can someone please explain it?
I think you are asking for how many writes.
