Intel SSD DC P4600 NVMe PCIe Review
     Sun, Feb 18 2018 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year, Intel updated its line-up of NVMe, PCI Express-based solid state drives, for cloud and data center applications, with a couple of different models tuned for different workloads. The Intel SSD DC P4600 we will be showing you here was among those drives. It features a fourth-generation Intel controller and performance-optimized firmware, along with 3D TLC NAND flash memory (384Gb per die). If you remember, the DC P3700 we looked at a few years back had an 18-channel controller and MLC NAND, so the P4600 may sound like a downgrade in some respects, but as you’ll see a little later, performance is still strong with this newer drive relative to its predecessor...

     Sun, Feb 18 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a budget 2.5-inch SATA SSD you’ll quickly find that many are using TLC NAND Flash memory. TLC NAND has come a long way in recent years, but after a number of poorly implemented solutions have come to market it has some enthusiasts avoiding them. The Crucial BX300 series was launched in August 2017 as a budget drive that uses 3D MLC NAND with SLC caching! Read on to see how it performs when we put it to the test!

Samsung SSD 860 Pro Review: Fast, Reliable SATA Solid State
     Sat, Feb 17 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bleeding-edge NVMe solid state drives are a hot commodity in the enthusiast space and the premium laptop market, but there are still billions of legacy SATA ports out there just waiting to be attached to fast, reliable solid sold state storage. To that end, Samsung is delivering some band new SATA-based solid state drives today using the company’s latest 64-layer 3D V-NAND flash memory and a new controller – the Samsung SSD 860 PRO and 860 EVO Series drives. We’ve got a 2TB Samsung SSD 860 Pro in-house and have put it through its paces alongside some other recently-released SATA-based solid state drives.

Intel SSD 760p Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Feb 16 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is refreshing its mainstream NVMe-based solid state storage line-up with a brand new SSD targeting mobile and desktop platforms, that has much higher performance but lower power than its predecessors. The Intel SSD 760P series of solid state drives being introduced today combine the latest Intel 3D NAND with a third-party controller, and some custom firmware, to increase performance versus previous-gen offerings but also bring NVMe SSD pricing closer to SATA.

Samsung 860 PRO SSD Review – 2TB Drive Tested
     Thu, Feb 15 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung released the 850 PRO way back in July 2014 (our review) and the series was quickly found to be an ideal drive for PC gamers, enthusiasts and storage snobs needing a SATA SSD. We’ve pretty much saturated the SATA III interface and as a result of that there hasn’t been anything too terribly exciting in the SATA SSD market in recent years. Enthusiasts looking for bleeding edge storage technology have moved on to PCIe NVMe storage drives, but those drives cost more and have capacity limitations. After a long 4-years the folks over at Samsung figured now is the time to freshen up what they have to offer the SATA SSD market by launching the 860 PRO and 860 EVO series...

Intel is shaking up the mainstream SSD market by releasing a new NVMe drive at what it calls near-SATA prices. We run the drive through our storage-testing gauntlet to see whether the SSD 760p 512 GB and its 64-layer NAND turn out to be a game-changer.

MyDigitalSSD SBX M.2 NVMe SSD Review (128GB/256GB/512GB)
     Tue, Feb 13 2018 | 3:32P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MyDigitalSSD SBX is the new entry-level NVMe SSD on the block. It features Phison’s new E8 NVMe controller and Toshiba’s BiCS TLC NAND. This combination enables the SBX to break free from the SATA interface and deliver some rather impressive performance, as to be expected of a PCIe device, but most importantly, it comes to market with prices that are comparable to SATA, even cheaper than some of the still in channel enthusiast class models! With performance three times greater than SATA at its worst and prices that may allow it to take reign over the market, we just couldn’t wait to get this drive in our hands. Now that we do, its time for you to read on to see if it could be your next purchase.

ADATA XPG Gammix S10 M.2 NVMe SSD Review (512GB)
     Tue, Feb 13 2018 | 3:32P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year, ADATA’s gaming branch, XPG, released their newest product line, the Gammix series, and within that, they released the XPG Gammix S10 M.2 NVMe SSD. This SSD is quite sleek and high-end looking, with its flashy red with black heatsink and blacked out PCB, but its performance doesn’t quite match its looks. Although one would think that because it comes with an added heatsink that it is one of the fastest hottest running SSDs out, the truth is actually the contrary. It features a Silicon Motion SM2260 controller and Micron’s first gen 32-layer 3D TLC NAND, which is the same hardware as the slowest NVMe SSD we have tested to date, the Intel 600P. It’s not a terribly bad thing though, it’s just not quite the beast one would be led to believe it is judging by appearance alone. It is, however, stated to deliver faster write performance than the 600P, so there is an improvement we look forward to seeing in today’s testing.
