Sounds like they are slowly getting there. SSDs are much more durable than most people give them credit for.

I say they still won't reach 1PB. But, I'm surprised they have written as much as they have.

Big jump from 155GB to 1000GB (1PB)

Whoever thought 1PB of writes were possible was let's say enthusiastic at least.

A couple of other sites tested the drives and wrote 1PB. However they gave no details on what kind of data was written and how the test was done.

Hammered state as they are running in this test? Doubtful.

It would be like testing my Honda van engine at 7000RPM red line until it dies vs. 1900RPM 55MPH cruising speed or it might even be like testing at 1200-1500RPM.

Of course they are doing sheduled "oil changes" etc. with TRIM.

That was the purpose of the xtreme forums tests to slam them hard and see how long they would last.
So far so good!

This all just re-enforces my belief the "reducing writes" to the SSD is blown way out of Proportion.
Which is why I always say, just leave everything where it is, except User DATA (for space) and dont worry. Even Pre-Fetch is fine if you want it.

If they can write this much DATA to them, I honestly do not see anyone wearing out thier SSD in 5 years time or more (Defective Hardware excluded)


Its quite intersting to say the least.

I think a more intresting question is how much could they write to a 120GB SSD. These are 40GB. Many more nand cells on a 120.

I agree with that. I think these tests show it is hard to kill one, even if you try.

My thoughts also.

In theory you could loose an entire NAND chip or two and still have 90GB? left to keep using on a 120GB.
As long as the controller stays working- only one of them.
