Any idea on how this effects SSD life? My guess is that almost all the write amplification will hit the SLCs and then it will eventually migrate over to the MLCs when it settles down. Since the whole point of caching is to hit these hot spots, then any effective caching should lower write amplification, and it shouldn't take much effort to drop write amplification down to a non-problem.

Want.

Benchmarks please. Numbers will determine whether I splurge on one of these since my current SSD is going on 2 and half years and starting to show its age.

Double post due to the interference of MP's annoying advertisement of which they refuse to fix.

Just run an adblocker. If they lose out on that revenue, maybe they'll change their minds.
