Product Description

IBM 64GB Intel SSD 3GB/s for IBM System x 43W7659

While the IBM 64GB Intel SSD X25-E's faster write speed and quicker access latency are great, it's on the longevity front that the drive offers the biggest step up over the X25-M. Multi-level memory cells are limited to 10,000 write-erase cycles before they burn out. Single-level memory cells, on the other hand, are good for 100,000 write-erase cycles—a difference of one order of magnitude.

SLC-based flash drives should last much longer than those that use MLC memory chips. Exactly how much longer depends on several factors, including the write-erase content of the workloads involved, the size of the drive, its write amplification factor, and the efficiency of its wear-leveling algorithms. Solid-state drive makers tend not to discuss those last two factors, but according to Intel, they can have a profound impact on a drive's actual lifespan.
