What are the endurance specs (TBW) of Compute Stick's 32Gb internal storage module?

The OS reports that the system drive model my Compute Stick has is Kingston S10032. It's not a regular SSD, but an eMMC module, thus it has no support for S.M.A.R.T. and TRIM.

I was unable to find this model's specs on Kingston's website, and I'm concerned about its endurance.

What are the endurance characteristics (TBW, DWPD, P/E cycles) of Kingston S10032?

Hi anton_p,

The compute stick is a small device for basic home entertainment. The storage device is an eMMC (Kingston) and it complies with JEDEC e•MMC 5.0 standard.

More details of the eMMC at https://www.jedec.org/standards-documents/technology-focus-areas/flash-memory-ssds-ufs-emmc/e-mmc e.MMC | JEDEC

Thank you, Mike.

Looks like eMMC standard defines support for TRIM.

However, JEDEC specs do not say anything about endurance.

Is it possible to ask Kingston to provide this information?

Hi anton_p,

I would try to get the information that you are looking for. It is possible to get support on Kingston embedded products using their support website. Their support is by email.
