NM610 (1Tb) produced by Lexar use previous bus standard that is twice slower than PCIe 4. The sequential write speed is 1600 Mbps, that is slower than has most of competitors. The Lexar NM610 provide possibility to write 375 TBW, that is bad in comparison with nearest competitors. Weighing all these factors, Lexar NM610 1Tb has more disadvantages and we highly do not advise to buy it.

The Lexar NM610 1Tb has no dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) in their controller or data about it is not known. Dynamic Random-Access Memory in their controller help to increase I/O performance and endurance.

The Lexar NM610 1Tb due to the low density of memory chips may function with no further heat sinks. Some laptops or motherboards designed with thermal pads below or above the drive for improving performance during times of heavy loads.

The Lexar NM610 has sequential write speed 1600 Mbps, read speed 2100 Mbps. It operate on Silicon Motion SM2263XT controller and M.2 3.0 x 4 high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. The NAND flash memory type is Intel TLC.
