    Extreme Wearout / NAND_Writes_1Gib on INTEL SSDSC2BW120H6

    usego

      Hi,

       

      I have a number of linux workstations with SSDSC2BW120H6 in the office running for 6-12 months. I've started monitoring SMART recently and was shocked by wear out numbers I see. Please check one of examples:

      So... PC is running for 5353 hours (~7.5 months), 19426161684 logical sectors written (~9TB) , but 249 (NAND_Writes_1Gib) says 90TB with 52% wear out??? Why physical writes are 10 times higher than logical? Will the SSD be dead in another 7 months?
