     Mon, Mar 26 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's duo of Optane SSD 800P drives promises the same blend of impressively-low latency and performance consistency as its larger Optane devices at a price more builders can afford. We ran these drives through our storage-testing gauntlet to see whether they can make a name for themselves as primary storage.

Intel Optane SSD 800P Review
     Mon, Mar 26 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is launching its latest Optane-branded family of solid state drives today, the Intel Optane SSD 800P. Unlike the Intel Optane Memory devices, which accelerate hybrid storage configurations through intelligent data caching, or the Optane SSD 900P that’s aimed squarely at hardcore enthusiasts with big budgets, the M.2 based Intel Optane 800P targets the meat of the mobile and desktops markets, with higher capacities than Optane Memory, but more affordable pricing than the 900P...

     Sun, Mar 18 2018 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With just $140 for the 525 GB version, the Crucial MX300 is one of the most affordable M.2 drives out there. Instead of NVMe it uses the slower SATA interface though. Our review will take a closer look at how much difference that really makes and whether the MX300 M.2 is a good alternative to 2.5" SATA drives.

SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD 480GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Mar 16 2018 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in August I took a look at the new WD My Passport SSD and was impressed with its performance and form factor. While it does have an SSD inside it wasn’t really designed to take a beating, something that might happen when you use a drive a lot and it gets tossed around. Well, Western Digital owns SanDisk as well and along with the My Passport SSD they had also sent over the SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD. It is a completely different design and it is designed to handle a little more rough handling. Today I’m going to check it out and see what they are doing differently with this model and take a look at its overall performance.

Posted by: STAFF
When one thinks of an M.2 SSD, we typically associate that with either a SATA 6GB/s or more recently with a PCIe 3.0 x4 link. The physical interface of M.2 was meant to accommodate future methods of connectivity, but it's easy to overlook the ability to revert back to something like a PCIe 3.0 x2 link. Why take a seemingly backward step on the interface of an SSD? Several reasons actually. Halving the number of lanes makes for a simpler SSD controller design, which lowers cost. Power savings are also a factor, as driving a given twisted pair lane at PCIe 3.0 speeds draws measurable current from the host and therefore adds to the heat production of the SSD controller. We recently saw that a PCIe 3.0 x2 can still turn in respectable performance despite lower bandwidth interface, but how far can we get the price down when pairing that host link with some NAND flash?

Intel SSD 760p 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD Review
     Fri, Mar 16 2018 | 3:15P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel launched the SSD 600p Series back in 2016 they rocked the storage market with a solid performing PCIe NVMe SSD series that was available at affordable prices. Intel was able to do this by pairing the Silicon Motion SM2260 controller with Intel 32-layer TLC NAND Flash memory. The result was a series of drives that were was capable of sequential read/write performance of up to 1800 / 560 MB/s and random read/write performance of 155K / 128K IOPS. In January 2018, Intel released the successor to that series with the SSD 760p Series. Intel did some major updates under the hood on the SSD 760p Series as they went with newer Silicon Motion SM2262 controller with custom firmware and the latest Intel 64-layer 3D TLC NAND Flash memory. Read on to see what those changes did on Intel's budget PCIe NVMe drive series.

Crucial MX500 1 TB SSD Review
     Fri, Mar 16 2018 | 3:15P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks ago Crucial introduced their new MX500 series with 64 Layer 3D TLC NAND. After the MX100, MX200 and MX300 follows not the MX400 SSD, but now the MX500 SSD. The Crucial MX500 is available in capacities from 250GB over 500GB and 1TB up to 2TB and offers a number of features designed to provide greater stability and data security. In our previous test of the Crucial BX300 we were already enthusiastic about the Silicon Motion SMI 2258 controller and we are curious to see how the new second generation 3D NAND will perform in combination with this controller.

Samsung 860 EVO M.2 SATA3 SSD Review (2TB)
     Fri, Mar 16 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Through introduction of the Samsung 860 EVO, Samsung has done two things that make the EVO a great introduction; they have made it current with their latest 64-Bit 3D TLC V-NAND and they have given more power to their MJX controller, thus creating faster host to host communication. This increases their audience significantly as the 860 EVO now has an open door to workstation, NAS and other business communications where affordable, yet reliable storage is key. This, in itself provides a great deal of confidence in their product, even increasing the final TBW on all capacities, but specifically, it is now 12000TBW vice the previous 3000TBW with a five year warranty for the 2TB volume.
