But don’t rely on affordable drives with cheap NAND in a server, or any other environment with a continuous, high workload and similarly high reliability requirements.Top 10 SATA (Consumer) SSDs Top 10 m.2 2280 SSDs Top 10 PCI-Express SSDs Available Capacities: 128GB – 1TB Interface: SATA III 6Gbps 550MB/s read (256GB) 520MB/s write (256GB) Samsung’s biggest strength in the SSD segment so far has been reliability–many have opted for Samsung drives mainly on account of their hassle-free operation.
It is primarily based on sequential read and write speeds (ideal circumstances); keep in mind that there are several other factors that should be taken into consideration when choosing a solid state drive, not least reliability.
The Neutron XT uses a Phison PS3110-S10 controller and high quality Toshiba 19nm MLC NAND.
The 4KB random read goes up to 100K IOPS and the 4KB random write goes up to 90K IOPS. It also support Smart ECC, Smart Refresh, Smart Flush, and end-to-end data path protection.
Indeed, the 850 Pro series is consistently ahead of the competition in most areas, so you will have to move away from the SATA interface to see better performance.
