Micron 3D TLC NAND with Silicon Motion SM2263XT controller
Original Coupon Deal
Any reviews online? How does it compare with the usual subjects?
2s google search gave me this: https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/8923/lexar-nm600-low-cost-...
Just note that review is for the nm600 not the nm610. Not sure what the differences are.
You’re right. Can’t even find the production page for NM600 on Lexar website now. Spec wise they seem very much the same as from what I’ve read in the reviews, but not sure what the differences are as well.
cant see dram in this one
SM2263XT is a DRAM less controller that uses HMB
yep no dram
Would the no-DRAM \ HMB matter in a "purely storage" scenario? Looks like an awesome deal for a secondary storage drive without OS.
Probably not, to be honest, even for system drive, it should still be half decent. I probably will pick this over the QLC drives in the market for either purposes.
