Adata XPG SX950 SSD Review
We've been disappointed with the new SATA SSDs over the last several years. Samsung has essentially ruled the SSD market and sets the tone by manipulating the price of the 850 EVO. Every other company plays catch-up and bases pricing on how their SSDs compare to the EVO. We hoped Micron's 3D NAND would turn the tide, but early SSDs with the technology fell flat.

The ADATA XPG GAMMIX S10 (512GB) SSD Review: Entry-Level NVMe With Style
The ADATA XPG GAMMIX S10 is a M.2 NVMe SSD with very enthusiast-oriented branding and packaging, but it isn't even close to being ADATA's top NVMe SSD. Instead, it's a derivative of their entry-level XPG SX7000 M.2 NVMe SSD, adding only a heatspreader. Underneath, the SX7000 and the GAMMIX S10 both use Micron 32-layer 3D TLC NAND with the Silicon Motion SM2260 controller. This combination is also used in the Intel SSD 600p, which has been one of the cheapest NVMe SSDs on the market.

The ADATA XPG SX950 480GB SSD Review: In Search of Premium
ADATA likes to produce a broad range of SSDs, sampling from all the controller and NAND manufacturers. To that end, they have wholeheartedly embraced the use of 3D MLC NAND even as most brands are using the 3D NAND transition to entirely remove MLC from their consumer product lines or relegate it to niche models instead of treating it as the mainstream default.

Dell

Dell SDI T0500 & SDI T1000 Thunderbolt 3 SSDs
Dell has just announced a pair of external SSDs. The Dell SDI T0500 will have a 500 GB capacity. The Dell SDI T1000 will, as the name suggests, doubles that to 1 TB. Both external SSDs connect via Thunderbolt 3. Because it's using this connector, we can expect it to be fast but not mass-market. I am guessing that Dell intends this product to be purchased with one of their Thunderbolt 3 laptops, and probably with a specific type of user in mind. That is just my speculation, though.

We were extremely impressed with the Micron 9100 Enterprise SSDs. They are still the fastest NAND flash SSDs we've tested to date, but they were built on planar NAND, and we know everyone is replacing their flat flash with more cost efficient 3D NAND. Same goes for the 9200:

Micron Readies 3D QLC NAND-Based Datacenter SSDs for Nearline Storage
Micron has revealed plans to release datacenter-class SSDs based on 3D QLC NAND memory in an effort to compete in the nearline storage market. Briefly announced at a conference last week, the company is taking aim at applications that currently use 7200 RPM HDDs, the use of which is increasingly common in nearline storage. The manufacturer did not reveal any additional details about the upcoming drive, but demonstrated a wafer with QLC 3D NAND dies.

Micron unveils insanely fast 9200 PCIe NVMe SSD series with up to 11TB capacity
Solid state drives are all the rage nowadays, but as fast as they are, they don't often compare to mechanical hard drives from a capacity standpoint. Heck, my pricey MacBook Pro came with a very fast NVMe drive, but with a mere 256GB of storage. This is quite paltry when cheap laptops using a HDD can often exceed four times that capacity. Of course, there is a big speed tradeoff, making the smaller capacity preferable to some. It stinks that many consumers have to choose between a fast yet small SSD or a slow and roomy HDD.

It's 2018. Can we leave the microSD card in the past now?
Pictured above is the microSD card my girlfriend was using in her phone until recently. The card -- a genuine, 64GB Samsung EVO series -- served her well for about a couple of years and had never shown symptoms of failing. Yet one day, all her pictures and videos vanished -- without warning and without trace.

It's good to be making NAND right now, not so good to be buying
The trend we have seen over 2017 is predicted to continue, with the price of NAND steadily increasing thanks to the limited supply. Over the first two quarters we have seen prices rise between 3-10% and this trend is expected to continue.

Larger Flash, Emerging Tech Will Reduce SSD Pricing In 2018
In August, we said the consumer SSD market would level off but that shoppers would not see any major price drops until late 2018. Just weeks ago, reports spread across the web proclaiming an end to the NAND shortage. In some markets, that's true, but it's important to understand that the consumer market is different from the enterprise market.

LiteOn Intros CV6 Series Value SATA SSDs
Following up on its CA3 NVMe SSD series launch from earlier this month, LiteOn introduced the new CV6 line of value SSDs featuring the SATA 6 Gbps interface. The drives come in 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch, and M.2-2280 form-factors (M-key), taking advantage of SATA 6 Gbps interface. The drives combine a Marvell 88SS1074 controller with Toshiba-made 3D TLC NAND flash memory. The controller features LDPC gen 3 error correction, and SLC caching, a feature with which it treats a small portion of the TLC NAND flash as SLC, juggling hot data in and out of it for more performance.

In Asia, the brand has a strong following and is known for products that offer very high reliability at low prices. Across the Pacific, Lite-On is more like our Crucial; conservative, affordable, and dependable.

NAND Flash Prices to Continue Short-term Decline Amidst Oversupply; 2H18 Supply to Tighten
If there's one green, DIY upgrade path available for users far and wide right now is acquiring an SSD. With prices on RAM being crazy enough as they are (even if slightly better now compared to some months ago), and the finally cooling prices on graphics cards (due, in no small part, to this), the latest times have been hard for users looking for a straight upgrade.

NAND Flash Supply to Improve in 1Q18
DigiTimes, quoting industry sources, reports that NAND flash supply should see improvements from its 4Q17 state in 2018. This likely doesn't come as much of a surprise - 2017 has been a sort of "squeeze" year for NAND and DDR memory manufacturing, with companies increasing production without committing to fully satisfy demand, which in turn translates to longer term higher pricing of memory.

No Relief for DRAM and NAND Shortages in Sight; Considerable Supply Only in 2018
DRAM prices have been high for quite some time now, due to a general increased demand over a slowly improving supply capability from manufacturers. Pricing of DRAM has been increasing (to the tune that if I wanted to double my memory capacity, I would have to pay double of what I paid a mere 11 months ago.) NAND pricing has been affected as well, with newer technologies such as 3D NAND not having a relevant impact on end user pricing as was expected, since tight supply and growing demand means process-level savings are dwarfed by the increasing prices on the balance of supply and demand.

The Impact Of HDD/SSD Performance On Linux Gaming
Last week we presented our initial benchmarks of the Intel Optane SSD 900P on Linux and it offers mighty performance potential for those using I/O heavy workloads thanks to the use of 3D XPoint memory. But is a solid-state drive like this really worth the price if you are just a Linux gamer? Here are some tests comparing load times and boot times between a HDD, SATA 3.0 SSD, NVMe SSD, and this 3D XPoint NVMe U.2 SSD.

TinkerTry Gets a Real Look at the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X
We reviewed the Intel P4800X - Intel's first 3D XPoint SSD, back in April of this year. The one thing missing from that review was product pictures. Sure we had stock photos, but we did not have the product in hand due to the extremely limited number of samples and the need for Intel to be able to make more real-time updates to the hardware based on our feedback during the testing process (reviewers making hardware better FTW!).

Phison PS5008-E8 NVMe SSD Technical Preview With Performance Analysis
NVMe SSDs are on track to outsell SATA models by the end of 2017. It's difficult to imagine that happening in the current aftermarket climate where the products with the fastest protocol demand a price premium, but there's plenty of value in the NVMe market. The Intel 600p and MyDigitalSSD BPX already set the tone with the speedy NVMe interface at close-to-SATA pricing. These products currently contend with high-performance SATA SSDs, like the Samsung 850 Pro. In October we will begin to see NVMe SSDs matching mainstream SATA SSD pricing, and many of those value-optimized SSDs will ship with the upcoming Phison PS5008-E8 controller. That's what we have in for testing today.
