PCIe 3.0,TLC, Ten Cents A Gig
There’s a lot to love about Teamgroup’s MP33 Professional drive, not least that the 1TB mannequin is promoting for $99 on Amazon. It’s nonetheless PCIe 3.0, however as many checks have proven the distinction in between PCIe 4.Zero and three.Zero is barely noticeable for avid gamers and informal customers. The Phison 5013-E13 controller ought to supply as much as 2500 MB/s sequential learn, 2100 MB/s sequential writes on a 1TB or bigger drive, which was what the Guru of 3D actually wished to check.
As you would possibly count on, for the primary 20GB or so the drive performs admirably, however as soon as it hits that restrict we see the same old drop in efficiency TLC is susceptible to. You definitely see that efficiency hit in artificial benchmarks, in addition to of their 64GB video seize take a look at the place the throughput drops to 1500 MB/s after 20 seconds. That’s nonetheless not too unhealthy and can go away QLC alternate options within the mud. After they examined recreation loading and different widespread duties, the drive simply retains up with the pack.
Teamgroup is providing a 5 12 months guarantee or a complete of 600 TB written, whichever comes first; to not shabby for a drive of this worth. Take a gander on the full outcomes in Guru 3D’s review.
