HP mid-range FX900 NVMe SSD
The Hewlett-Packard FX900 SSD, manufactured with the assistance of BiWin, comes in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities. Its performance tops out at 5/4.8 GBps for sequential read and writes, with IOPS hitting an astonishing 828,000/663,000 peak for read and write, both respectively. That’s astonishing because the HP FX900 SSD is based on the DRAM-less InnoGrit IG5220 controller, although it still supports PCI-Express 4.0. The FX900 also features a fast 176-layer 3D TLC NAND flash from Micron.
The specifications indicate that the HP FX900 is an entry-level to mid-range NVMe SSD, DRAM-less but able to benefit from PCIe 4.0 bandwidth to a limited degree. HP offers a 5-year warranty with 400 TBW per TB of capacity. This is less than typical for a standard NVMe drive but more than adequate for most users.
The HP FX900 SSD is good for the industry and reasonably priced. It shows that pairing a good controller and good flash can offer high everyday performance. In addition, the 4-channel, DRAM-less design is not a limiting factor as it was in the past. There are indeed similarly priced PCIe 4.0 SSDs available, but many of those use various older controllers that are not nearly as fast.
The HP FX900 SSDs are efficient and fast enough so they feel good to use, but they are also vulnerable to logical and physical failures that may result in critical files inaccessibility. If failures occur, the owners of the HP FX900 SSDs will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their valuable documents and files back.
