Hopalong, I don't think you need to worry about your SSD. The xtreme systems test is up to 80TB written to it and it's still going. Kind of like a timex watch.

I think you are right. Might not be the fastest but should out last my 10 year old greatnephew.

Year is 2060 and still running.

Welcome to the forums. Great scores. As far as the driver, With my intel and vertex2 I found msahci performed better than the AMD driver. I'm sure the Crucial forums will have a lot of info on that.

You're not the only one.
I have a IntelP45 with a ICH10 (not the ICH10R)

Mine seems to do just as well, maybe slightly better just using the generic MSAHCI driver over the Intel iaStore, for whatever reason.

Although admittedly, the differnce is very little.


Some do however see nice gains from the Intel driver. I suppose it really depends on the setup.


The standard MSAHCI driver actually works really well.

Can this be true?

This site experimented to see how much data could be written to an X25-V before the NAND expired. They wrote to the device 24/7. (Seems they paused once every 12 hour to run TRIM from the toolbox).

Translation makes it hard to understand exactly how they ran the experiment, but they state:
...
In total there were able to achieve 0.73PB in 6,185 hours! That is a phenomenal amount of writes, which appears to be way over spec of 20GB of host writes per day for a min of 5 years.

Here is another one 0.86PB in 7,224 hours!

Does that come down to the work load or are Intel specs extremely conservative?

They went to a whopping 789.9TB host writes before they stopped.
Can't tell for sure from the translation but, seems like it was still going

Some interesting links in this thread.

Looks like SSD endurance is much better than previously indicated.
The 20GB per day for 5 years = 36.5TB
The XS thread have reached that with a 80% Media Wearout Indicator, 80% life remaining.

One of the other threads linked above have reached 187.2TB with a 1% Media Wearout Indicator, 1% life remaining.

A whopping 789.9TB host writes before they stopped.

That's 432.8GB per day for 5 years, or 20GB per day for 108 years.

Guess we don't have to be so concerned about the amount of writes on our SSDs.
