Team Group Launches Ultra Durable SSDs w/ 12 Years of Warranty: Ideal for ChiaCoin Mining

Story Highlights
  • The 1 TB drive should help generate profits of up to $11,665 while the 2 TB drive drives that figure up to $23,331

Team Group has launched a new ultra-durable SSD lineup aimed at ChiaCoin miners, with an insane TBW lifetime of up to 12,000 TB. These SSDs will come under the T-Create Expert series lineup, making it a creator SSD for the most part (but for miners). The T-Create Expert series is the first in the industry to come with a warranty of up to 12 years, further demonstrating the high life expectancy of the SSDs.

The SSDs will come with a sequential read speed of up to 3,400 MB/s and writes of up to 3,000 MB/s. The random read and write performance is rated at 180,000 IOPS and 140,000 IOPS, respectively. They will leverage TLC NAND technology and adopt the PCIe 3.0 x4 (NVMe) interface. In terms of storage capacity, you’re looking at only two models, a 1 TB and a 2 TB variant.

The 1 TB model has a TBW lifetime of up to 6,000 TB while the 2 TB has a rated expectancy of 12,000 TB. A normal 1 TB SSD generally lasts for up to six months mining (farming) ChiaCoin while a 2 TB should last for a bit less than a year. These drives should last for nearly twice as much considering the rated TWB lifetime.

As per present prices, the 1 TB drive should help generate profits of up to $11,665 while the 2 TB drive drives that figure up to $23,331. Not bad at all.

    1. You just need high-capacity drives, or SSDs if you can afford them. Try to look for custom boards with more than 10 SATA slots. NVMe storage isn’t recommended as it saturates the limited PCIe lane count (16-20) of most processors.
