An affordable choice for large capacity and good performance, Lexar NM610PRO solid-state drive evaluation

Regarding Lexar, I believe that users who are familiar with consumer storage products are no strangers. And Lexar Lexar has been in action recently, and new products have been launched continuously. Some time ago, we also brought you a variety of Lexar Lexar memory cards, storage devices and new SSD solid state drive evaluations, and today we bring you the same SSD solid state drive recently launched by Lexar Lexar. New product - Lexar Lexar NM610PROM.2 solid state drive. Lexar Lexar NM610PRO PCIeGen3x4M.22280NVMe solid state drive out of the box Lexar Lexar NM610PRO is an upgraded version of NM610, it also uses PCIeGen3x4 interface protocol, but NM610PRO uses the more high-speed and efficient NVMe1.4 high-speed technology standard, which makes the solid-state drive more efficient transmission performance. The product positioning of Lexar NM610PRO solid state drive is similar to that of NM610. It is also positioned as an entry-level M.2 solid state drive product. The color of the outer packaging is different from the traditional black or black gold. The NM610PRO chooses a fresher gradient blue and white. combination. The product rendering of the NM610PROM.2 solid-state drive is printed on the front of the outer packaging carton, allowing buyers to intuitively understand the design of the entire SSD solid-state drive. Above the rendering is Lexar's text LOGO and the detailed NM610PRO product. Model Name. Below the product rendering, the performance parameters and interface specifications that the NM610PRO's read performance can reach 3300MB/s are marked. Of course, there are also product capacity specifications. The NM610PRO we received has a 2TB capacity specification. Version. On the back of the outer packaging carton is the description of the product's performance specifications and related warranty descriptions. In addition, the back of the carton is equipped with a cut-through window design, through which the product label of the SSD solid state drive placed in the inner package can be seen through the window, which can better identify the specification label on the SSD solid state drive and the specification label on the outer packaging. Whether it is consistent or not, it also has an anti-counterfeiting effect from one side. Open the outer packaging carton, you can see that the Lexar NM610PROM.2 solid state drive is fixed in the inner packaging plastic box made of transparent blister material, because the internal structure of the plastic box is fixed according to the size of the M.2 standard SSD solid state drive The protection design, coupled with the flip-type folded fixation, enables the SSD solid state drive to obtain a very good fixation and protection effect in the inner packaging plastic box. The Lexar NM610PROM.2 solid state drive adopts a single-sided component welding layout, and the size of the SSD is also the current mainstream M.22280 design, so whether it is used on a desktop platform or a portable notebook computer, it can provide very good installation compatibility. Since the SSD solid state drive adopts a single-sided component welding layout design, there is no component distribution on the back of the PCB substrate of the SSD, and only part of the component circuit on the substrate and the pins in the component installation area can be seen. After peeling off the label sticker covering the components on the front of the PCB substrate, you can see the component layout of the entire SSD solid state drive. It can be roughly divided into two areas, the main control circuit area located near the M.2 interface end and the memory chip circuit area that occupies four-fifths of the entire PCB substrate. The main control chip used by Lexar NM610PROM.2 solid state drive is from Maxio, the model is MAP1202A-F1C. It is designed based on the Dramaless no-cache solution, and the main controller supports the third-generation AgileECC+4KLDPC technology, which greatly improves the embarrassment of entry-level SSDs without cache. For the memory chip part, four RC75QAA1442512G memory chips from Longsys are used, with a single capacity of 512GB, and four of them form a product specification capacity of 2TB. Lexar Lexar NM610PROPCIeGen3x4M.22280NVMe SSD performance test The test platform used in this evaluation: build the main test platform based on AMDRyzen95900X, the system disk is Samsung 9801TB, the data disk is Samsung 870EVO1TB, and the test disk is LexarNM610PRO. Verification of the actual capacity specification of the hard disk First, after formatting the system, take a look at the actual free space of the Lexar NM610PROM.2 solid-state hard disk. You can see that the free space displayed in the system reaches 1.81TB, which is in line with the capacity level of a 2TB hard disk. The HWinfo64 monitoring software verifies the hard disk specifications and parameters. Through the HWinfo64 monitoring software, the specifications and parameters and supporting technologies of the Lexar NM610PROM.2 solid state hard disk can be understood in more detail. CrystalDiskInfo to check hard disk information Using the hard disk health detection tool CrystalDiskInfo to check hard disk information, we see that the firmware version of Lexar NM610PRO2TB is 5915, the transmission mode is PCIe3.0x4, supports NVMe1.4 standard, supports S.M.A.R.T, TRIM and VolatileWriteCache functions, standby The temperature is 33 degrees. ASSSDBenchmark theoretical performance test ASSSDBenchmark We will compare the 1GB and 10GB tests of two orders of magnitude. It can be seen that the Lexar NM610PRO in the two orders of magnitude read and write tests, the results obtained after the two data packet tests are not very different. It shows that the SSD can meet the load of different test packages, and the performance of sequential read and write can basically be maintained at the level of 3100MB/s and 2300MB/s. CrystalDiskMark theoretical performance test CrystalDiskMark theoretical performance test results are similar to ASSSDBenchmark. Whether it is a small-capacity data packet or a large-capacity data packet, in the performance test of the SSD, the solid-state drive can maintain a stable and there will be no speed difference. There are obvious differences. Sequential reads are all above 3500MB/s, while sequential writes have a certain difference, but the performance is only within 100MB/s, and can reach above 2500MB/s, both exceeding the official standard. called speed. ezIOmeter benchmark test: The data level obtained by the ezIOmeter benchmark test is not significantly different from the data obtained by the above two software tests, but the ezIOmeter benchmark test can see that the SSD can reach the limit speed data in the extreme speed state, and in the test, the highest The write and read MBps can reach 5063.99 and 6711.34. 3DMark storage test: In the 3DMark disk test, you can see that the average bandwidth and access time obtained by the SSD in the test are 394.03MB/s and 80μs, respectively.
