The Expert PCIe SSD terabyte version promises 6,000 terabytes and the two-blade version 12,000 terabytes of write resistance.
We reported last month about a new Chia cryptocurrency that requires only storage capacity and read and write operations instead of computing power. Chian, which is more environmentally friendly than other cryptocurrencies, is reported to have already wildened the hard drive market in China and even sales of SSDs have exploded, leading to higher prices.
Now, under its T-Create brand, TeamGroup has released an Expert PCIe SSD drive specifically designed for Chia mining. The Expert PCIe SSD is, as the name implies, an NVMe 1.3 M.2 drive with a PCIe 3.0 bus. The drives will be available in one and two terabyte capacities. SSDs are promised 3.4 GB / s consecutive read and 3 GB / s write speeds, as well as 180,000 IOPS random read and 140,000 IOPS write speeds.
TeamGroup does not describe on the website the type of NAND chips used by the drive, but the drives are promised exceptionally good write resistance: as much as 6,000 terabytes for the terabyte model and 12,000 terabytes for the two-blade model. The warranty period is also quite handsome 12 years, assuming, of course, that the promised write durability doesn’t come true first.
The T-Create Expert PCIe SSD release bulletin or website does not tell you the price of the drives or when exactly they will be available.
