TeamGroup Announces "Industrial" 3D TLC NVMe SSD Lineup

SSD Data Recovery TeamGroup

TeamGroup has announced two new PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD solutions under its "Industrial" branding. The new M.2 2280 SSDs (N75A-M80 and N75G-M80) are marketed as having industrial-grade resilience and patented cooling technologies for performance and reliability in 24-hour, high-workload environments.

TeamGroup only presented three available capacities for the Industrial N75A-M80 SSDs and N75G-M80 SSDs: 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB. The SSDs are based on 3d TCL NAND and feature a DRAM cache, although TeamGroup doesn’t quantify it in their marketing materials. Both the reduced capacity and PCIe 3.0 interface are responsible for this card’s sequential 3,500 MBps read and 2,100 MBps write speeds, but it’s important to remember that they are built for high reliability that meets performance expectations.

The Industrial SSDs come with cooling systems that differ in their capabilities. The N75A-M80 SSD has a tall aluminum fin heatsink, while the N75G-M80 has a graphene copper foil heatsink that's one 1 mm high. According to TeamGroup, these patented cooling systems can reduce operating temperatures and improve reliability in the harshest operating conditions. The company claims a 23.8% temperature reduction in the N75A (the one with the tall aluminum fin) and an 8.3% temperature reduction for the N75G (graphene copper foil).

The reliability of the Industrial Series is backed by numerous MIL-Spec certifications. Both SSDs are rated to shock up to 50 G / 11 ms (meets MIL-STD-202G Test Condition A) in operation and 1500 G / 0.5 ms (meets MIL-STD-883K Test Condition) at rest. Also, the drives have certificates of vibration resistance according to the MIL-STD-810G General standard.

Operating temperatures for both Industrial SSDs can range from -40 degrees Celsius up to 65 degrees Celsius with no loss in operational capability. Mean Time between Failures (MTBF) is set at 3 million hours + (around 342 years). Operational energy consumption is quoted at 4.27 W Max and 0.82 W Min for the 512 GB version.

TeamGroup expects their Industrial SSDs to be mainly picked up by such industries as automotive systems, aerospace equipment, military, and AI machines, so support for AES256 bit encryption / TCG Opal 2.0 is also included along with SSD error correction algorithms.

But no matter how good and reliable they are, the TeamGroup Industrial 3D TLC NVMe SSDs can also fall victim to physical and logical failures that can result in critical data inaccessibility. Then the owners of the Industrial N75A-M80 SSDs and the N75G-M80 SSDs will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their data back.
