The current M.2 SSD, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB can basically be called large-capacity, only a few can achieve 8TB, but as QLC flash memory gradually enters the market, the average capacity of a single SSD will gradually increase, Team Group’s newly launched MP34Q M.2 SSD has achieved a maximum capacity of 8TB.
Team Group’s MP34Q M.2 SSD uses 3D QLC flash memory. The capacity starts directly from 2TB, and there are 4TB and 8TB upwards. Users can store audio, video, and large-scale games in it at will. Large-capacity SSDs are very good data warehouses for gamers and content creators.
It uses PCI-E 3.0 x4 interface, continuous read and write speed reaches 3400/3000 MB/s, SSD is equipped with DRAM cache. Of course, the SLC cache is also supported, otherwise, the original writing speed of QLC is really unclear. At present, QLC SSD basically uses a dynamic large-capacity SLC cache strategy, and Team Group MP34Q itself has a very large capacity, so I guess its SLC cache capacity is also considerable.
In terms of durability, TEAM GROUP MP34Q 2TB is 450 TBW, 4TB is 900 TBW, 8TB is 1800 TBW, and the warranty period is 5 years. The durability is actually significantly lower than the TLC SSD of the same capacity, but because the capacity is large enough. The overall TBW is still very impressive. Of course, the biggest selling point of this series is that it is cheap enough. The suggested retail price is now $300 for 2TB, $700 for 4TB, and $1,300 for 8TB. It is expected to be listed in mid-August.
