MyDigitalSSD BPX M.2 NVMe SSD Review (480GB) – An Unmatched Value

CRYSTAL DISK BENCHMARK VER. 4.0.3 X64

Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through a sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples.

Crystal Disk Mark’s results are lower than what ATTO reports, but, show to be better than the rated specs on the packaging. Instead of 2.6GB/s read, it achieved nearly 2.8GB/s and instead of 1.3GB/s write, it achieved 1.4GB/s write. At 4K QD1 the speeds show to be very respectable with read reaching 49MB/s and write at nearly 190MB/s.

AS SSD BENCHMARK VER 1.8

The toughest benchmark available for solid state drives is AS SSD as it relies solely on incompressible data samples when testing performance. For the most part, AS SSD tests can be considered the ‘worst case scenario’ in obtaining data transfer speeds and many enthusiasts like AS SSD for their needs. Transfer speeds are displayed on the left with IOPS results on the right.

The MyDigitalSSD BPX’s AS SSD results are similar to the other E7 powered SSDs we have tested. It achieved 2779 points with sequential speeds reaching 2.37GB/s for read and 1.22GB/s for write. Furthermore, it achieved 56MB/s read in 4K QD1 reads and 131MB/s in write. In terms of IOPS the MyDigitalSSD BPX delivered nearly 240K IOPS read and over 180K IOPS write. Finally, for the Copy test it achieved very respectable results with the ISO and Game results both over 1GB/s.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL

Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) is the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and use in our benchmark testing.

The BPX achieved an overall score of 10.5K in Anvil. Sequential read speeds reached 2GB/s and write speeds reached just over 1.2GB/s. It also achieved very respectable 4K QD1 results.

Great to see a review of this by you.
Did you conduct any tests for throttling?
My main beef with M.2s in general is how they heat up and drop down to 2x speeds.
I’ve only used Samsung XP / 950Pro and Plextor.
Have seen this in Towers and 1U/4U chassis.
I buy them for smaller footprint builds, but even 2x speeds allow the higher random iops.
Hoping somebody makes one that doesn’t slow down from streaming.
Thanks

Team Group is announcing a gaming M.2 SSD called the T-FORCE CARDEA. It has a cooling module atop the drive that they claim reduces temps by at least 15% and mitigates throttling. TSSDR should be posting press release coverage of this in the next day or so.

Excellent to hear. The MSI X270s address this but that Dog won’t hunt…

Your 30 GB transfer test is a bit of a giveaway-looks like a Toshiba built-possibly
My Digital firmware.
If they’re willing to sell at lower margins than the other clones-They’re the one
to buy…………………………………….

So is it good compare to other ssds ? I like the sound of the enterprise support modules

Please read the report as many of the tests are direct comparison with other SSDs.

Hi, the ssd is faster when the data is compressable, because of the nature of the controller?

Les@TheSSDReview

SSDs compress data when it is being stored which provides higher write speeds than data that is not easily compressed.

this ssd is much better value compare to 960 evo?

Largely due to this review, I chose the 240GB MyDigitalSSD BPX over a Corsair using the same controller that was on promo on Newegg. While I was about to pull the trigger on the latter, switched to Amazon & thankfully found this one. Performance wise, on a ASRock Z97 Extreme6 MB, although using a Sintech PCIe adaptor with a small fan for extra cooling, and would had purchased the Lycon or Addonics one w/out the fan if the Sintech model weren’t available. Because in the native Ultra M.2 slot (just as mSATA), these SSD’s will get toasty then begin to… Read more »

My first one was so good…..that I had to get another of the 240GB version, was priced the same. Wanted the larger, although pricing jumped by $25. In reality, don’t need that large of an OS drive, have many high performance HDD’s & various models of 120-128GB SATA-3 SSD’s awaiting action again. Just felt that any extra unallocated space (minimum of 10% recommended for most) would had boosted performance & drive longevity by the controllers having lots of unused space to work with. Note that some SSD’s (not limited to NVMe) has inaccessible space for this purpose, so manual over… Read more »
