TOPIC: Ventura Ultra - clarifications needed

Ventura Ultra - clarifications needed 10 months 2 weeks ago #1646

Hi all,

So I finally managed to order a 120GB Ventura Ultra last week (still to arrive).

I'd like to clarify a few doubts:

1. Last week's press release mentions the drives having a transfer rate as 380/326 MB/s - which is significantly slower than the initially advertised rates (and the rates currently advertised by stores) 445/440 MB/s. Is this an error? If not, why the sudden revision of speeds?

2. What is the write endurance of the drive? (write cycles / maximum bytes)

3. Is it necessary for the OS to issue regular TRIM commands or does the drive controller manage it automatically?

4. Is the firmware of the drive updatable?

Thank you.

The up to read and write speeds on the website are correct, the press release was not.
The 120GB would be up to 445/440MB/s

The drives have 3000 P/E MLC NAND, same as most current SSDs.

The drive's controller will manage the drive automatically.

As far as I know the firmware will be updatable.

Is TRIM possible on the ventura ultra? (If I wanted to for optimized performance.)

And if yes, how enable TRIM on an Apple computer for the Mushkin Ventura Ultra?

There is no TRIM through USB.
