Yesterday i bought a 535 256GB SSD and found the Write Amplification problem.
But I only found Write Amplification Firmware for 240GB (Firmware:RG21).
as title my question is when will 256GB(Firmware:BG21) Write Amplification Firmware release?
We understand you have one of the SSD 535 series, but this does not appear in our retail list, as you can see in http://ark.intel.com/products/series/86825/Consumer-SSDs this link.
We would like to know:
-Where did you get the drive from?
-Did you try to run the firmware version that fixes the write amp? (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26452/Write-Amp-Firmware-for-Intel-SSD-530-535-Series Here is the link)
Please let us know if this works, we'll be waiting for your response.
Thanks for your reply.
I searched the 256GB drive using "SSDSC2BW256H601" and found a PDF from intel https://qdms.intel.com/dm/i.aspx/2FB5BCC3.../PCN114318-01.pdf pdf's link
I come from Taiwan and bought the drive from "德源電腦有限公司" here is the website http://deyuan-pc.com.tw/ link
Yes i tried that firmware but i got "status: The selected Intel SSD contains current firmware as of this tool release".
I also tried intel ssd toolbox and it's firmware update button still gray.
Thank you for the reply and the links.
We'd like to get more information about this model and the firmware version on it since it is not the generic one.
We'll keep you posted here.
