A modest brand from the Far East is the first to offer a drive SSD Which is based on Silicon Motion's SM2262 controller
We have already told you about the promising potential of theSSD The new Silicon Motion, SM2262 and SM2262EN products are designed for a new wave of drives SSD NVMe supporters who will try to challenge the סמסונג And her own controls. Now we get a first chance to be impressed by the practical performance of these products, apart from what is announced in the developer itself.
drive SSD Taipower, also known as Teclast in tablets, meets the name Mirage NP900 and is based on the standard SM2262 controller, with a known 2 millimeter .80 configuration and a built-in cooling body above it. According to data from the AS-SSD For a model with 512 gigabyte storage, the Mirage NP900 will have continuous transmission speeds of up to 2.7 gigabytes per second (read), random performance with small 4 files, up to 280,000IOPS in reading, and 255,000IOPS in writing , As well as short periods of time in performing these actions, all of which together give a perfectly fine numerical score for the drive, not far from the grades received by the 960 EVO models of סמסונג, Which attests to the fact that it can indeed be viewed as a legitimate high market product.
Commercial drive data is somewhat lower than the theoretical ones announced by Silicon Motion when it unveiled the SM2262, with the promise of continuous transfer speeds of up to 3.1 GB per second in reading and random performance of up to 370,000IOPS in reading and up to 300,000IOPS in writing - perhaps because of the volume of 512 GB of documented performance is not enough to reach its full potential, perhaps because the memories of theNAND That the use of the Mirage drive is not the highest quality and most advanced available and perhaps because the firmware in it is not optimal - there are quite a few more question marks that will undoubtedly intrigue us as we go further.
We do not know how much the Mirage NP900 will cost and whether it will be relevant to consumers in Israel, but given the wide adoption of previous products Silicon Motion - We probably will not have to wait too long until more drives based on the SM2262 emerge, from more significant manufacturers with a stronger presence in the various markets - then we will know more about the performance and technical characteristics, and especially the prices we expect.
