You can use m2 to u2 adapter that's what I use for a 2.5" drive like this on my desktopI assume these require a special backplane specifically for PCIE drives, right?
Am I correct in reading that these drives only have an endurance rating of 127TBW?You can use m2 to u2 adapter that's what I use for a 2.5" drive like this on my desktop
You can also use a PCIE Adapter like Funtin to convert the 2.5" into single PCIE device, I use numerous of these too with great success. There are other PCIE adapters with multiple ports too.
I do believe you are.Am I correct in reading that these drives only have an endurance rating of 127TBW?
Yea these are clearly not for heavy write usage when you look at the endurance rating and the write speeds.I do believe you are.
Elsewhere on Intel's site it's specified as 70GB per day.
That's pretty comical.
It would take 58 seconds of sequential writes per day to reach that figure or around 30 total hours of sequential write to reach the lifetime write specification.
I would say very definitely inappropriate for heavy write workloads, particularly random small block I/O with write amplification.
OS DRIVE for Windows Desktop. Badass for that, esp at this price.I totally get it. Just not sure what's the use case for NVMe type speeds with such low warrantied reliability.
