SK hynix SE3010 960GB Review

Rating: 8.0.

When we last looked at an SSD from SK hynix it was from their consumer portfolio. This time around we are looking at a drive from the other part of their storage business in the shape of the SE3010, a read intensive drive for the Enterprise market space.

The SE3010 has been designed to cope with read intensive applications such as web servers, media streaming, data warehousing or video on demand and in these environments write operations take somewhat of a back seat.

SK hynix are one of the lucky few; one of the companies who have the full house of NAND, controller, firmware and cache firmly under their own control which gives them a great deal of flexibility regarding hardware choice and more importantly perhaps, a firmer grip on pricing.

At the time of writing the SE3010 family consists of the following capacities; 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and the flagship 1.9TB.

The quoted sequential read performance for the 960GB drive is 560MB/s with writes coming in at 490MB/s and SK hynix give an endurance figure for the drive of 0.50 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day).

    the numbers for the Samsunf 850 EVO 1TB SSD are low compared to other reviews…just mentioning it because the 850 EVO 1TB, according to other reviews, beats all the drives on this site’s graphics in this article. http://www.thessdreview.com/our-reviews/samsung-850-evo-ssd-review-1tb-differing-series-controllers-compared/3/

  2. This is an enterprise drive, it has power protection and has nothing to do with the EVO. Also, the EVO is a TLC drive. I’d take an MX200 1TB over it any day.
