Curiously, and although 3D TLC NAND is all the trend nowadays on account of elevated density on the identical footprint, with out bringing any severe, real-world issues associated to endurance, as we’ve seen, the Neutron NX500 seems to pack MLC reminiscence. Do you even keep in mind that? That is a part of the explanation why efficiency is rated so excessive: there’s three,000 MB/s learn, 2,400 MB/s writes, 300,000 IOPS in random learn, and 270,000 IOPS on random write workloads. Although you’ll have to pay a reasonably penny for this sort of efficiency: the 400 GB Corsair Neutron NX500 is at the moment retailing for $319.99, whereas the 800 GB model will not provide you with any advantages from the financial system of scale: it retails for $699.99.
