[TechReport] The SSD Endurance Experiment: 500TB update - Page 3

post #21 of 40
Incredible. I always thought of rewrites on my SSDs as a taboo that should be very much avoided. Guess it's safe to say I can rest easy in that regard.

I want a SSD.... But the price...

Not just that, but that tech advances extremely quickly these days, and before you know it you can get a good 1TB SSD for £150 or under that performs better than anything of today, Its painful to wait but it should be worth it.

Can someone tell me what the verdict is?

Are SSD's life low?

The verdict is that SSD life is not an issue for any commercial use, 500TB would take a normal user about 100 year to write( my almost 1 year old SSD is at 4.5TB written right now).

Once upon a time I somewhat worried about SSD life. Now I laugh. Chances are I'll be dead before my currently owned SSDs are depleted from writes(unless I've sold them).

Imo it's not, current gen is already so much faster than HDD. It often frustrates me how slow my work laptop is compared to my home desktop, it's a huge difference and i would never get a desktop without a SDD again. And about performance, my pc starts up in 5 second. With a faster SSD it would maybe be 4 seconds. You could say 20% is a lot but 5 seconds is already so little that it doesn't matter. While with an HDD it would probably 1+ minute .

He's right. My girlfriends laptop which has a sandy bridge i3 processor and 6GB of ram takes 1minute or so to boot up when completely shut down. In that time I could of rebooted my z87 system with a ssd 15 times probably with ultra fast boot options in the bios. With a x58 type system your looking at 15 seconds.. still insanely fast! think of all the time you waste waiting for stuff like steam, origin to open then how long it takes to just reboot.

I had one of the early Intel G2 80GB drives as my main OS drive from the day it was released until last week. My computer sees HEAVY usage. I recall the usage being around 120TB of data transfered. According to the INTEL program the drive was still at 98%. It's now happily in my wifes computer and going strong. I have ZERO worries about the life span of these SSD's anymore. Barring normal failures of course.

I've been convinced a while since there have been other long-running endurance tests of SSDs before. It's nice to have a reputable site doing well documented runs though, and benchmarks alongside (no performance degradation is pretty awesome).

Maybe now we can finally put this myth about SSDs to rest? Right? tongue.gif

I think it's been known for a while that majority of SSD failures are not from wear, but rather from controller failures.

Wow, look at that Reallocated Sector Count. Thta's crazy tongue.gif

Over at Xtremesystems, they used to have SSD torture tests using Anvil Storage Utilities...



One drive was ahead the rest: the Samsung 830 256Gb was not only the fastest drive while bombarding it with sustained writes, but also the most durable one...6PB!!!

There was speculation that the Intel X-25, despite it's slow crawl, didn't show any wear and would be able to surpass the Samsung 830 given time and patience. But hey, the crown can be only for one biggrin.gif

Let's see how the Samsung 840 compares, looking at that
