We take a look at Phison’s second-generation PS5018-E18 with Micron’s latest and innovative B47R 176-layer replacement-gate TLC flash.
The PMC-Sierra Flashtec NVRAM drive offers up to 10M IOPS in Direct Memory Interface (DMI) mode and 1M 4K random IOPS when utilized as a block device with the lightweight NVMe protocol.
Intel is the first fab-enabled manufacturer to come forward with an enterprise-class M.2 SSD. Come along for a closer look at the diminutive speedster.
Phison offered to let us test its S10 controller with three flash types that will ship in 2015: Toshiba's A19 TLC, 15nm MLC and Micron L95B 16nm MLC.
Join us as we put Mangstor's MX6300 Enterprise NVMe SSD under the Tom's IT Pro microscope. How does it fare against competing NVMe-based PCIe models?
Join us as we put Intel's 1.2TB DC S3710 under the Tom's IT Pro microscope. How does it fare against competing 2.5-inch enterprise SSDs?
JMicron sent over three SSD configurations that use the new JMF670H controller and are paired up with brand new flash memory.
Join us as we put Intel's 800GB DC S3610 under the Tom's IT Pro microscope. How does it fare against competing 2.5-inch enterprise SSDs?
With the introduction of its SSD DC P3700, P3600, and P3500, Intel is giving us our first taste of the PCIe-based NVMe specification. We take the flagship P3700 for a drive in its 800 GB and 1.6 TB incarnations. Just how fast is the future of storage?
We have our first retail SSD with JMicron's JMF667H controller. Paying $115 for 256 GB of fast storage sure sounds attractive, but has the company ironed out the issues that plagued it in the early days of SSDs? We run its SSD340 through our grinder.
It's rare that we get the chance to test SSDs before they hit production. But after waltzing with Silicon Motion's SM2246EN platform last year, JMicron offered us a handful of reference drives with different types of flash, all driven by the new JMF667H.
After winning an award last year for its 840 EVO, Samsung is ready to follow up with another high-end offering. The company's 850 Pro SSD merges the EVO's familiar MEX controller with 3D V-NAND. Does the combination justify an upgrade, or should you wait?
With the introduction of its 845DC EVO, Samsung continues down the path of taking well-received enthusiast-oriented SSDs and customizing them for the enterprise. We run the new drive through a battery of tests in order to determine its strengths.
Plextor's next-gen M6e is a M.2 2280 PCIe SSD combined with a x4 PCIe adapter. You probably don't have a M.2 PCIe slot yet, but Plextor hopes their Marvell 9183 powered SSD will find a home in enthusiast systems thanks to their adapter.
Building on the desktop-oriented M500, Micron is announcing its enterprise-focused M500DC. We got a chance to run the 800 GB model through an updated test suite to gauge whether this Marvell-powered SSD keeps up with the best-known enterprise solutions.
Plextor is launching two new SSDs under its M6 banner. The M6S and M6M lean on Toshiba's A19 flash and Marvell's updated 9188 silicon. Together, both components (plus some custom firmware work) should augment value and speed in a couple of form factors.
