Lineup includes 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB models
Wilk Elektronik SA, which owns the Goodram and IRDM brands, has unveiled a new line of IRDM M.2 SSDs featuring PCIe 3×4 interface and DRAM buffer. The drives support the NVMe 1.3 protocol.
These drives are said to be six times the performance of SATA 6Gb / s SSDs, and the DRAM buffer improves stability under load.
The drives use TLC 3D NAND flash memory and an eight-channel Phison E12 controller. The lineup includes 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB models. The sequential read speed in the case of a 256 GB SSD reaches 3000 MB / s, in other cases – 3200 MB / s. The sequential write speed in the case of a 256 GB SSD reaches 1000 MB / s, in the case of a 512 GB SSD – 2000 MB / s. 1TB and 2TB drives write data at speeds up to 3000MB / s.
The read performance reaches 149,000 IOPS for a 256GB SSD, 295,000 IOPS for a 512GB SSD, 250,000 IOPS for a 1TB SSD, and 490,000 IOPS for a 2TB SSD. Write performance reaches 250,000 IOPS for 256 GB SSDs and 500,000 IOPS for all other sizes.
The manufacturer does not provide a resource, limiting himself to indicating the warranty period – five years. Prices for 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB drives are roughly € 30, 49, 92 and 181, respectively.
