The FX900 Pro is HP's latest SSD aimed at the enthusiast end of the market. It combines an InnoGrit controller with Micron 176-layer NAND together with a PCIe Gen4 interface. We review the 2TB model, retailing for about $250 – can it do enough to prove competitive in a highly saturated market? That's what we will find out today.
At the heart of the HP FX900 Pro is an InnoGrit IG5236 8-channel controller paired with 176-layer NAND. Four capacities currently make up the FX900 Pro range; 512GB, 1TB, 2TB (our review sample) and a flagship 4TB model.
The official Sequential read/write for the drives are; up to 7,400MB/s reads for the 1TB, 2TB and 4TB models and up to 7,000MB/s for the 512GB drive. Sequential writes are listed as up to 3,800MB/s for the 512GB, 6,400MB/s for the 1TB model, 6,700MB/s for the 2TB drive and up to 6,300MB/s for the 4TB unit.
Random read/write performance for the drives is listed as up to 540K IOPS & 938K IOPS for the 512GB drive, 1,014K IOPS & 1,079K IOPS for the 1TB drive, the 2TB drive is rated at up to 1,344K IOPS for reads and up to 1,122K IOPS writes. The 4TB drive gets figures of up to 1,350K and 1,150K for reads and writes respectively.
The endurance for the 2TB drive is listed as 1,200 TBW and it's backed by a five-year warranty.
