Does anyone know what is the Intel SSD endurance indicating? Is it endurance of random write or sequential write ?

 

This is becoz I noticed that some other brands got the endurance stated in these 2 different aspects.

Hello ysching,

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel® customer support.

 

 

I understand that you would like to know more about the endurance value that appears on an Intel® SSD.

 

 

The endurance in an Intel® SSD is calculated for the workload specified in JESD-219 standard, which consists of 100% write, 100% drive span, 100% random, mixed blocks size with 67% being 4 KB. So, to sum up, it indicates a random write endurance.

 

 

If you have any other question, don't hesitate to contact us.

 

 

Regards,

 

Andres V.
