I understand that the RAM caching in MaxVeloSSD is supposed to help prolong the life of our SSDs. My basic understanding is that the life of an SSD’s NAND memory is diminished by each write or erase, but not by reads.
Can someone help me understand how the RAM caching mitigates SSD writes?
I’d like to test Intel’s SRT cache with write-back enabled (“maximum” setting) verses MaxVeloSSD configured with different amounts of RAM cache. I want to measure how much wear savings there is by using MaxVeloSSD.
What’s a good way to test this?
