Press Release

PNY presents the PNY LX2030 and LX3030 M.2 NVMe SSDs, designed for “proof of space and time” applications like Chia mining. Plotting Chia Coin uses “proof of space and time” applications that utilize the unused space on a users’ systems, making it a more energy-efficient and environmentally conscious model. To secure the blockchain, the data needs to be first created in a process called “plotting”, which is only required once per plot file. This process is write-intensive requiring a storage device which higher endurance with high sustained write bandwidth. The LX2030 and LX3030 come with higher endurance compared to standard consumer SSDs.

Lifextension Technology
The PNY family of LX drives take advantage of Lifextension technology to offer a Chia plotting TBW rating of up to 54,000 in the LX3030 2TB. To deliver such a high Plotting TBW, the LX series of PNY SSDs utilize an advanced AI Engine, LDPC, and Flash I/F to improve NAND endurance, making them the best unit cost for plotting. Without sacrifice, you are able to take full advantage of Lifextension technology and the up to 18X better endurance by adding an LX drive to your system.

Engineered to Perform
The PNY LX2030 and LX3030 are engineered with the precision and quality our customers have enjoyed with the CS families of SSDs. We've taken the most advanced NAND flash and refined the LX family of SSDs to achieve a higher threshold for endurance and reliability. PNY's extensive testing and rigorous validation process ensure compatibility across various platforms and multiple operating systems.
