Check out our WD Blue SN550 SSD review to learn more about what makes this the best DRAMless SSD on the market. In short, it provides seriously competitive performance that outperforms its own price range (ranking highly in our PC Mark 10 storage and Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers loading tests) and stands out as one of the best low-cost PCIe SSDs available.
The SN550 has sequential read/write speeds of up to 2,400 and 1,750 MBps, respectively, a Western Digital-designed WD controller for great efficiency and durability, and a fully-featured software suite to monitor the health of your purchase at all times.
It also comes with a 5-year warranty for long-term peace of mind. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
The T-Create Expert PCIe SSD offers sequential read and write speeds of up to 3,400 MBps and 3,000 MBps, respectively, regardless of capacity. The drive’s random performance is rated at 180,000 IOPS reads and 140,000 IOPS writes.The Chia farming performance of the WD Expert PCIe SSD has yet to be proven. A single Chia plot, for example, can take up to 12 hours to complete, depending on the drive.
The WD Expert PCIe SSD’s greatest asset is undoubtedly its durability, as there are far faster drives on the market. A WD typically requires 1.6TB to 1.8TB of write space. In theory, the 1TB and 2TB models can create up to 3,333 and 6,666 WD plots before reaching their write limits, respectively.
At the time of writing, each WD plot was selling for $3.5. As a result, the 1TB drive can earn up to $11,665.5 in profit and the 2TB drive can earn up to $23,331. However, TeamGroup has not disclosed the pricing for the T-Create Expert PCIe SSD, so we can not estimate the cost at this time.
