Looking For M.2 NVMe SSD For NAS System? – Meet Seagate IronWolf 510

An M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3.0 x4 SSD specifically designed for NAS use.

Seagate recently released a new M.2 SSD under their IronWolf series – the Segate IronWolf 510. This new drive is specifically design for NAS use, just like all their drives under the IronWolf series. Seagate already have the IronWolf (Pro) HDD and IronWolf 110 SSD. The only missing is an M.2 drive since latest NAS systems today can also accommodate M.2 NVMe SSDs for a faster storage transfer and access. The IronWolf 510 is now available and you can check out more details below.

The Seagate IronWolf 510, not to be confused with the FireCuda 510, features a Phison E12DC Enterprise SSD controller. This is what separates it from the FireCuda 510 that uses a Phison PS5012-E12 controller. It’s also using 3D TLC NAND flash for the main storage chips and it’s available from 240GB up to 1920GB capacities.

The 240GB and the 480GB are single-sided, meaning only one side of the drive has chips on it; while the 960GB and the 1920GB are double-sided, both sides are populated. The 240GB and the 480GB have the slowest speeds in the lineup; with 2,450 MB/s-2,650 MB/s sequential read and 290MB/s-600MB/s sequential write respectively.

Meanwhile the 960GB and the 1920GB has a faster 3150 MB/s sequential read speed and a 1,000MB/s-850MB/s sequential write speed respectively. These are fast read and write speeds compared to a typical SATA SSD, but it’s not fast enough compared to the FireCuda 510 SSD. The FireCuda 510 has a sequential read speed of 3,400 MB/s and a sequential write speed from 2,100MB/s up to 3150MB/s.

The IronWolf 510 doesn’t feature any SLC caching and it doesn’t have TCG Opal encryption as well. But one of the main features of the IronWolf 510 is that it has 1 DWPD or Drive Writes Per Day. That’s basically higher than other competing SSDs to date. In contrast, the FireCuda 510 has a DWPD of only 0.5.

Western Digital is usually Seagate’s main competitor when it comes to NAS storage drives. However, currently WD doesn’t have any M.2 NVMe SSD designed for NAS that can compete with the IronWolf 510. WD only has the Red SA500 NAS drive. Unfortunately, it is not as fast as the IronWolf 510 since it is only a SATA-based SSD in an M.2 form factor. The WD Red SA500 M.2 is basically equivalent to the SA500 2.5” SSD form factor, or Seagate’s IronWolf 110 SSD.

You can check out the detailed specs of each capacity from the specifications table below.

Seagate IronWolf 510 Price and Where to Buy

The IronWolf 510 is now available in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1.92TB capacities. It comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $119.99, $169.99, $319.99, $539.99 USD respectively. It also comes with a 5-year limited warranty. Prices of SSDs tend to change, so for latest pricing and availability kindly check out the link below.
