SSD drive for cryptocurrencies


The growing popularity of the cryptocurrency Chia has led to increased interest in high-performance SSDs. The well-known company Adata decided to take advantage of this situation.

A cryptocurrency called Chia, unlike market giants like Bitcoin or Ethereum, does not require powerful video cards to mine. Called “green virtual money,” it uses the resources of storage media such as HDDs and SSDs.

So it’s not surprising that its ever-growing popularity has led to the creation of a device specifically designed to use it effectively. We’re talking about Adata’s new Prospector950 SSD.

The Prospector 950 uses an M. 2 PCI-E 3.0 x4 interface, achieving read speeds up to 3500MB/s and write speeds up to 3000MB/s. Its TBW cell capacity is estimated at 28,000 TB, more than 40 times that of standard media. The drive has also been equipped with a small heat sink that makes it easier to dissipate heat.

In addition to efficient Chia mining, the Prospector 950 Pro SSD is also great for editing large video files, uploading and downloading them.

Unfortunately, details about its price and availability are not known at this time.
