SSD Lifetime writes / Estimated remaining lifetime
Kingston HyperX 3K (SH103S3/120G)
Should we be overly concerned about its durability, because it will most likely "survive" the warranty period and will work for years at a high level
It is a myth that the TBW index determines the lifetime of the carrier. This parameter is only a warranty for the manufacturer. In fact, SSD drives can save much more data than declared. Although SSD life tests are not popular, they lead to the killing of the disc, for such an experiment in 2013, the techreport.com portal decided.
Journalists took six discs and checked how much data you can save on each one. The procedure consisted in the continuous recording, deletion and re-writing of 10 GB data packages, and the whole test lasted for about a year and a half. Effects? The most durable disk was able to save 2.4 petabytes of data, while the weakest of the six records saved 720 TB. These results are virtually unachievable to the average user.
