5 Average maximum power is measured while the SSD is continuously processing sequential read and write commands for at least 10 seconds, with a transfer size of 128KB per command, QD= 32 and 1 thread. Sampling interval is 1 second. Measured at 25°C and can vary due to input voltage and ambient temperature variation.
6 Peak power is the maximum instantaneous power consumption measured while the SSD is continuously processing commands for at least 10 seconds, with a transfer size of 128KB per command, QD=32 and 1 thread. The sampling interval is 10μs. Measured at 25°C and can vary due to input voltage and ambient temperature variation.
7 TBW = Terabytes Written. Projected endurance is calculated based on sustained sequential write operation without frequent idle.
8 Based on Western Digital’s internal calculation, using a prediction methodology in accordance with the Telcordia Special Report SR-332. The prediction is based on a Parts Stress Analysis, performed at a temperature of 40°C in a GB (ground, benign) environment with duty cycle of 12 hours per day.
9 Operational temperature is defined such as -40°C refers to ambient temperature. +85°C refers to NAND BGA case temperature. When SMART composite temperature reported by the drive exceeds 85°C, thermal throttling will be initiated.
