QLC stands for Quad Level Cell. TLC stands for Triple Level Cell.

The way flash memory works is by trapping electrons. The way the memory tells 0 and 1 is by whether or not there is an electron trapped (In either polysilicon or nitride. That's a separate story altogether with intel memory that I won't get into here...)

Each time it is stored / erased, an electron is trapped, and then released. If you do this enough times, the material eventually fails. (Think of each erase / write cycle as a tiny degradation of the material).

This is the first flash memory, known as SLC (Single Level Cell).

To save cost, flash manufacturers figured out how to trap TWO charges in one structure. This is done by having 4 distinct quantum states. (No electrons at all (state 1) is 00, electron in state 2 is 01, electron in state 3 is 10, electron in state 4 is 11). This makes the material less stable and thus degrades faster. This is MLC (Multi Level Cell)

TLC is the next evolution, 3 charges in one structure. That's 8 distinct quantum states.

Now, QLC is 4 charges in one structures, that's 16 distinct quantum states required. As you can imagine, the material is now much more susceptible to degradation.


Hope this helps.

Should be perfectly fine for normal use for 99% of computer users. It's supposed to be slower and less durable than higher end nvme or SATA drives, but if you're upgrading from a traditional hdd it's still a massive speed improvement. And the write life span is north of 100 TB or something, way more than most people would ever write to one hard drive.

Is there a reason this isn't getting as much attention as the other ssd deals? Given the capacity and speed, this seems like a bargain?

Offer some advice? I plan on getting this with the x570 phantom Mobo and 2700x CPU to upgrade my current PC. I built it over 3 years ago, I've looked at what I need to know when I install this, but I know SDers are informative so, any details or specific information I should know about starting a build like that?

Thank you Smilie

They're not really comparable. One is M.2 and the other is not? They won't fit the same port.

I almost bought early this morning for my 2013 mac pro but at 1tb it's only 200 twb compared to the evo 970's 600. Recommened for light use only.
