TeamGroup MP33 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD PCIe 3.0 x4

Powered by a Phison 5013-E13 controller and paired with 3D TLC NAND with 600 TBW and a 5-year warranty, we check out the new PRO series NVMe M2 SSDs from TeamGroup. The series is not targeted at an enthusiast audience but is released as a value to mainstream SSD with decent enough performance. But will that be enough? Well, you can pick up these units at Amazon for 103 USD; that's the tested 1TB version. Team group initially releases two SKUs, a 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB model. As you can tell from the listed sizes, there is some previsioning on NAND for buffering going on, and it'll need that as it has no DRAM caching applied. This NVMe model in M.2 2280 is using the PCI Express 3.0 standard. Leveraging NVMe, the drive has maximum quoted speeds of 2,100/1,700MB/s and random 4K throughput of 220K IOPS. These are not brilliant numbers anno 2020; then again, if it's a multitude faster than a SATA3 SSD or faster, who am I to complain, really. The TBW values we learned ar listed at like so for the models 512GB / >400TB 1TB / >600TB 2TB / >1,000TB, which is a lot as you could completely write the SSD 600x before NAND would get exhausted. The company will offer a warranty is five years or that TBW value reached, whichever once comes first.

Let's head on to the next page and talk a little more about this value proposition at 11 cents per GB.
