    600p 256GB (SSDPEKKW256G7X1) request for: page size, erase block size


      The Intel website does not contain technical data (yet) for the 600p SSD series, only a product leaflet.


      Fort the purpose of:

      - optimal performance

      - optimal longevity


      I would like to know more technical details about the TLC 3D 600p series NVME SSD 256GB (SSDPEKKW256G7X1).

      This is an after sales question.


      Environment: Arch Linux 64-bit = kernel version 4.9.11.


      In short the questions are:

      - How to optimally GPT partition the device?

         - what is the partition alignment value a.k.a. erase block size? 1.5MB, 2MB, 3MB, 4MB, or even much larger?

      - How to optimally format the drive using ext4 and btrfs file systems?

         - what is the page size a.k.a. the smallest size in which the block device should be accessed? 2KB, 4KB, 8KB, 16KB...?

      - What is the allocation group size? That is a small number of erase blocks which are combined.

      - Is the device 100% MLC or mixed SLC/MLC? (For example for FAT optimization purposes)
