Thanks to the PCIe 4.0 standard, very high sequential read / write speeds have begun to be seen in NVMe drives. Addlink’s final solution comes with impressive sequential reading performance.
Solid state drives push the limits of current standards with their high performance. With the new PCIe standard, quite high levels began to be seen in sequential operations.
Addlink’s S95 NVMe driver consists of 3D TLC NAND Flash chips, the manufacturer and layer information of which is not shared, under the control of the PS5018-E18 controller announced by Phison recently. Let’s add that a DDR4 DRAM cache of 2666 MHz is located between the controller and NAND Flash clusters. Communication of the S95 with the system will be provided through the PCIe Gen4 x4 interface.
7 GB / s in sequential read, but what about random values?
According to Addlink, the SSD that can reach 7000/6800 MB / s in sequential read / write operations is quite impressive in this respect, but the random 4K read speed in the CrystalDiskMark test results shared by the company remains at the level of 73 MB / s is very pleased for an NVMe SSD of this level. not uncomfortable.
The S95 family, whose durability information has not been disclosed, is now supported by the standard ECC, Wear Leveling, TRIM and Over-Provision features.
Although the S95 family with a 5-year warranty, which has no price information, is offered with 1 and 2 TB options for now, 4 TB capacity option will be added in the future.
