PNY unveiled its new LX circle of relatives of SSDs which might be designed in particular for write-intensive workloads, reminiscent of. The corporate’s LX-series drives ship relatively unparalleled staying power scores of as much as 54,000 terabytes written (TBW), courtesy to Phison’s proprietary LifeXtension generation.
PNY’s LX circle of relatives contains three fashions that are available an M.2 2280 form-factor: the entry-level LX2030 2TB, the midrange LX3030 1TB, and the flagship LX3030 2TB. The drives characteristic a PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and are rated for as much as 3200 MB/s sequential learn speeds and 2400 MB/s (LX3030) or 1000 MB/s (LX2030) sequential write velocity. Those don’t seem to be efficiency champions right here, however the drives are adapted in particular for optimum staying power in plotting eventualities.
“I’m very excited that PNY has partnered with Phison to ship the primary SSD for Chia plotting,” stated Jonmichael Palms, VP Garage Trade Building at Chia. “The LX3030 is tuned for the Chia plotting workload, which calls for a top quantity of sustained bandwidth. Customers may also be relaxed figuring out they would possibly not put on out the power simply — the LX3030 1TB can create 2PB of plots ahead of dressed in out!”
PNY LX-Collection SSDs Specs
|TBW||Sequential Learn||Sequential Write|
|LX2030 2TB||10,000||3200 MB/s||1000 MB/s|
|LX3030 1TB||27,000||3200 MB/s||2400 MB/s|

The PNY LX SSDs are in line with a Phison controller enhanced with the LifeXtension generation (designed in particular for Chia plotting), and possibly come coupled with 3-D TLC NAND reminiscence. Neither PNY nor Phison expose how precisely LifeXtension works, but it surely seems like we’re coping with a compression generation designed in particular for Chia plots that comprise hashes. In addition they point out that it helps two XPlot modes: XPlot undeniable designed to extend staying power through about 3x and XPlot Professional that guarantees to spice up staying power through as much as 18x.
