The MSRPs (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Prices) are just insane; none of the big brands even come close to the prices of the MX100.

I wasn't very impressed by the performance of the M600 and DWA, but what DWA does provide is higher endurance since SLC is significantly more durable.

Crucial MX100 (256GB & 512GB) Review

by Kristian Vättö |

Unfortunately IMFT wouldn't disclose any details of their 16nm NAND (not even the die size) but this is most likely a symmetrical (i.e. 16nm*16nm) design as the use of high-K dielectrics allows scaling in both X and Y axes without major sacrifices in endurance or reliability.
I'm thinking that the 256GB M550 is more optimized for non-steady-state operation as that's more common for client workloads, which would explain why it performs poorly in the 2013 bench but is better in the 2011 Heavy test.

This is a good development of which we hope to see more, though we fear that due to an incoming stream of M.2 SSDs, SSD prices in general won't go down all that much over the next few weeks, if not months.
