HP EX950 NVMe In 512GB, 1TB and 2TB
HP have jumped into the consumer SSD market with a series of three drives, using Silicon Motion’s SM2262EN with Micron 64-layer 3D TLC and there is a RAM cache to help with sustained transfers. The 1TB model reviewed at Guru of 3D is rated for 3,500 MB/s sequential write and 2,250 MB/s sequential read, which CrystalDiskMark agrees is accurate.
The current prices are $89 for the 512 GB model, $145 for 1TB and $279 for 2TB which falls somewhat outside of $0.10/GB. HP offers a five year warranty on the drives, which are rated at 320 TBW for the 512GB model, 650 TBW for 1TB and 1400 TBW for the 2TB model. Overall they make a decent choice if you can find them at or below those MSRPs.
HP has released an super-fast new M.2. SSD, the new EX950 series, the rather properly volume sized 1024 GB (1 TB) model which we will review is fast and furious with a rated sequential read and write speeds up to 3200MB/s. HP is entering the high-end and enthusiast class with their new SSDs.
