The last capacity in the trio we tested this week is likely my favorite. Priced at just $75, this NVMe SSD delivers very strong performance, excellent endurance for its class, and is cheap.
At this point, there isn't a viable reason to buy a SATA SSD unless your system doesn't support NVMe technology. The new breed of low-cost NVMe SSDs have achieved near price parity with premium SATA SSDs.
These drives are superior in every way. The MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro 240GB delivers 3,400 MB/s sequential reads and 1,100 MB/s sequential write speeds. The best SATA SSDs deliver 560 MB/s reads and 550 MB/s writes. NVMe also lowers the latency by reducing the number of commands. Many low-cost NVMe SSDs fail to take full advantage of this because the architecture isn't efficient enough. The BPX Pro is one of the new low-cost NVMe SSDs that breaks past the barrier of what SATA can deliver.
As we mentioned, we've looked at all three BPX Pro capacities available today. In the coming weeks, a larger 1920GB model will arrive and likely lower the cost of 2TB class SSDs across the board. With so few 2TB class NVMe SSDs shipping we hope the BPX Pro sparks an avalanche of these similar drives. If your data requirements are not as spacious, the 240GB BPX Pro is a good choice to get you started with NVMe.
