    Enhanced Reliability

    Non-volatile NAND up to 30 times more robust than HDDs

    Up to 18X Better Endurance

    More Endurance for Your Plotting Needs


    The PNY LX3030 M.2 NVMe SSD is the ideal solution for “proof of space and time” applications like plotting Chia Coin. Unlike “proof of work” models like bitcoin which consume large amounts of power by requiring the miners to do complex mathematical calculations, “proof of space and time” applications utilize the unused space on a users’ systems, making it a more energy efficient and environmentally conscious model. To secure the blockchain, the data needs to be first created in a process called “plotting”, which is only required once per plot file. This process is write intensive, so a desirable SSD for plotting has high sustained write bandwidth and endurance (TBW, or terabytes written). Typically this level of write performance and endurance was only seen on enterprise class SSDs.

    The PNY family of LX drives take advantage of LifeXtention technology to offer a Chia plotting TBW rating of up to 54,000 in the LX3030 2TB. To deliver such a high Plotting TBW, the LX series of PNY SSDs utilize an advanced AI Engine and LDPC to improve NAND endurance, making them the best unit cost for plotting. Without sacrifice, you are able to take full advantage of LifeXtention technology and the up to 18X better endurance by adding an LX drive to your system.
