A New Family Of PCIe 3.0 NVMe Drives From Lexar
For their new NM610 family Lexar expanded their choice of capacities to include a 1TB model in addition to 250GB and 500GB models. The 3d TLC in the 500GB has a life of 250TB TBW, with a three year warranty, offering you a decent lifetime for around $80 for 500GB. Sequential speeds were close to the rated speed, with a read of 2,070MB/s and 2,091.11MB/s sequential write, making it a decent drive for storage however you should be aware that Kitguru found 4k speeds relatively slow.
Drop by for a closer look at queue depth performance and other benchmarks, if you are looking for low cost NVMe PCIe 3.0 storage for a new build or to enhance your current one.
