HP has unveiled its new high performance gaming SSD, the EX900 Pro




The HP EX900 Pro is an apt follow-up to the original HP EX900 SSD as it has been upgraded with durability and performance improvements over the previous version. It maintains its M.2 2280 form in a single-built structure. It has the interface of PCIe Gen3x4 and NVMe 1.3.

HP has been in the market for a long time and is already a well-established product based on many devices such as laptops or monitors, but these SSDs show their quality and durability up to 650 TBW with read rates up to 2095 MB / s. write up to 1965 MB / s. They come with a separate cache, which extends SSD life, because you don't have to have a cache partition to use it as a cache.

The type of driver they use is unknown, but the original is known to have DRAM Silicon Motion SM2263XT powered by Micron & # 39; s 64MB 3D NAND TLC HMB technology. Host Memory Buffer allows SSD providers to save part of the SSD capacity to act as a buffer, compensating for the absence of DRAM on the SSD, thereby increasing its performance. The original EX900 allocates 1 MB of 1 GB of single NAND memory.

The original EX900 offered capabilities ranging from 120GB to 1TB. Some learning speed has been lost, around 7%, but consecutive speeds have improved, about 39-61% depending on model and random, which is quite prominent, contributing between 141% and 161% over the previous model.

Its durability increased by 60%. This increase in robustness leads us to believe that HP uses higher NANDs, up from the 64 layers used 3D 96 Micron TLC layer.

The HP EX900 Pro comes with 3 different models with the following storage capabilities: 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.

The top-of-the-range model, the 1 TB EX900 Pro, achieves fast track speed 2095 MBps, while recorder sequences reach 1965 MBps. The model below for these components is achievable 2080 MBps and 1800 MBps, while one with low volume comes down to it 1960 MBps y 1120 MBps

As for the fixed reading and writing capabilities of the low-power model, the HP EX900 Pro 256GB achieves 167k IOPS and 259k IOPS speeds respectively. The next highest one gets 193k IOPS and 282k IOPS and the top grade gets 283k IOPS and 286k IOPS.

More capacity and more quality, HP is constantly striving to improve its best offering

In the section for fitness or resistance we are talking about a 60% increase in the model in which it occurs. In this model the resistance doubles as its average doubles, the 256 GB model starts to go away 160WW. The 512 GB model doubles that amount 320 TWB and more about 1 TB is controversial 650 TBW.

In the consumption category we have the most basic model with only 3.22W active consumption and 0.66W at rest. The mid-range model uses 4.29W in active and 0.67W in rest and distance in start with 4.38W in use and 0.68W in rest.

In the warranty category, this HP EX900 Pro SSD is supported by nothing less 5 years thus HP shows to be very satisfied with the reliability of these SSDs.

The price of the HP EX900 Pro SSD on the market is currently unknown and it is not known when it will be released, but it is expected to be soon.
