TEAMGROUP has announced a new PCIe-based storage product for the T-CREATE EXPERT lineup that sports superior data writing durability.
Riding the new wave of storage-based cryptocurrency Chia that uses a “Proof of Space and Time” algorithm, the rate of mining the coin is directly proportional to the storage capacity in a given system. Therefore, not only high-performance drives are a necessity but also extreme durability in terms of writing data is really important as you do not want to lose your plots because of a failing drive. Featuring a maximum of 12,000 TBW (TeraBytes Written) value that is up to 10 times more than the other categories such as the MP33 or QX SSD, the T-CREATE EXPERT is perfect for miners to start investing in the Chia scene. Even if you don’t, it is also great for home-based NAS to ensure your storage server lasts long without any performance penalty.
Here’s a quick summary of some of its key specifications.
- PCIe Generation: Gen3
- Capacity: 1TB / 2TB
- TBW: 6,000 (1TB) / 12,000 (2TB)
- Read / Write Speed: 3,400MB/s / 3,000MB/s
- Random IOPS: 180K / 140K
The official release date and pricing are unannounced as of now. More info about the TEAMGROUP T-CREATE EXPERT PCIe SSD can be found here.
