PNY LX2030 and LX3030 M.2 NVMe Gen3 x4 Solid State Drives: More Endurance for the Chia(R) Plotting Needs
HSINCHU, July 16, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

PNY( announced today the launch of the LX2030 and LX3030 
line of ultra high endurance SSDs to the company's assortment of solid-state 
drives. The new LX families of SSDs offer ever higher levels of endurance 
designed for "proof of space and time" applications like Chia (XCH) Plotting. 

Designed for Plotting
The PNY LX2030 and LX3030 M.2 NVMe SSDs are the ideal solution for "proof of 
space and time" applications like plotting Chia Coin. To secure the blockchain, 
the data needs to be first created in a process called "plotting", which is 
only required once per plot file. This process is write intensive, so a 
desirable SSD for plotting has high sustained write bandwidth and endurance 
(TBW, or terabytes written). Typically this level of write performance and 
endurance was only seen on enterprise class SSDs.

Lifextension Technology
The PNY family of LX drives take advantage of Lifextension technology to offer 
a Chia Plotting TBW rating of up to 54,000 in the LX3030 2TB. To deliver such a 
high Plotting TBW, the LX series of PNY SSDs utilize an advanced AI Engine, 
LDPC and Flash I/F to improve NAND endurance, making them the best unit cost 
for plotting. Without sacrifice, you are able to take full advantage of 
Lifextension technology and the up to 18X better endurance by adding an LX 
drive to the system.

Statement From CHIA Team
"I'm very excited that PNY has partnered with Phison to deliver the first SSD 
for Chia plotting. The LX3030 is tuned for the Chia plotting workload, which 
requires a high amount of sustained bandwidth. Users can be at ease knowing 
they won't wear out the drive easily - the LX3030 1TB can create 2PB of plots 
before wearing out. All of this is in an M.2 80mm form factor for broad 
compatibility. The entry LX2030 will be great for small form factor systems and 
4-6 core desktops and laptops, like the NUC build," said Jonmichael Hands, VP 
Storage Business Development at Chia.
