Closer Look at the ADATA XPG SX8200 PRO 512GB
3D NAND Flash is provided by Micron. There are four Micron NW926 chips to offer a combined capacity of 512GB. There isn’t much information on these chips so I am not able to provide a reference.
DRAM Cache Buffer in SX8200 PRO is provided by Nanya. There are two NT5CC128M16JR-EK chips on this module. Each of these chips is 2GB in capacity and have operating speeds of 1866Mbps.
NVMe 1.3 SSD Controller is provided by Silicon Motion. A single SM2262ENG chip offers PCIe Gen3 x4 support as well as 8 NAND channels in addition to all of the benefits on NVMe 1.3 specifications.
Do you suggest XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB or Corsair MP510 480GB? XPG is sligtly faster but it has 320TBW guarantee, MP510 has 800TBW guarantee.
It all depends on what is important to you really. No one is looking forward to hardware failures but everyone wants that extra performance. If you are planning to use the NVMe 24 hours a day you might want to look into Enterprize level storage. If not how often do you plan to replace your storage? In my case, I would go with all the performance I can get and worry about hardware failures further down the road.
I hope this helps.
