Chia SSDs – Some Of The Cheapest SSDs For Chia XCH Plotting

Chia (XCH) plotting has become costly but you can still find cheap SSDs for Chia plotting. New SSDs are announced to be available in the stores soon. There are some budget SSDs which you can use for proper Chia farming and saving a lot. So if you are also having issues plotting Chia despite spending a lot of money.

Cheap SSDs For Chia Plotting

Chia blockchain plotting is the proof of space and time which requires tons of TBs storage in a small time ultimately for all these jobs SSD is the only option. We cannot rely on HDDs for faster data read-write capacity comparatively. We cannot use old used SSDs for Chia farming. If we would, they would get destroyed immediately in the process. As just to create a K-32 plot we require TBs of storage. There are many SSDs which come affordable with endurance. 

How to choose cheap SSDs for Chia plotting which actually work?

The fact is you cannot choose just any cheap SSD for plotting. You might use tons of low-end SSDs which will soon wear out due to their low endurance. To save SSD total cost many SSDs come without DRAM which ultimately results in poor write performance. Read below to see some of the best flash SSDs which actually perform well for Chia plotting.

Best Cheap SSDs Comparison for Chia Plotting With Endurance, Speed, Performance and Storage

Samsung 980 Pro Vs WD Back SN850

While plotting, we look for two things either quickly plotting on each drive or want fastest performance and modest endurance. With all these qualities we found Samsung 980 Pro a steer in each test and WD Back SN850 stands almost the same for endurance, performance and storage. Although it’s a bit pricey. 

When you’d compare these two with other SSDs mentioned on our list above, you’d definitely find them more useful to plot Chia in terms of performance, endurance and speed. 

Sabrent Rocket Vs Silicon Power US70

The third most reliable SSD is Sabrent Rocket which has endurance, speed and durability. What we found more surprising is its speed and compatibility. Sabrent also comes very cheap as compared to Samsung Pro and WD Back models we mentioned above. 

The fourth most powerful SSD with endurance, quality and speed is Silicon Power US70 that beats others and helps plot in a real quick time. For plotting Chia you need speed a lot and Power US70 is a lot better in terms of speed and power. It’s just a thread slower than Sabrent Rocket. 

These two drives have great endurance. On a rough scale comparison you can find it 3X times more enduring than others. 

However there are still even cheaper SSD options available for plotting. For example you can use SATA only SSDs like Intel S4510 which come a lot cheaper than others and comes with U.2 SSD support to use with native connectors, edge cards etc. 

If you don’t want to spend all the money on plotting Chia which requires tons of TBs to begin with on a standard level, we recommend these SSDs also at this point no SSD manufacturer would tag them with a conformity. Yet, we think they are a lot better and cheaper options to save dollars on enterprise SSDs. 

Chia Cheap Plotting : Nvme SSD VS SAS Drive – Complete Buying Guide

Which SSD is solely built for Chia plotting?

Sabrent has just announced PlotRipper– an SSD solely built for plotting Chia. Like we mentioned earlier, keeping just the highest write performance is not always a better decision. There are many technical things that we need to understand. That’s why Sabrent is going to release its solely built for Chia blockchain farming SSD which will be made keeping in mind all the important things. PlotRipper is coming LifeXtention which will give you 18x time greater results. 

PlotRipper will be the first ever SSD solely made for Chia plotting. It will leverage the latest new Phison E18 controller and Micron NAND combo with 2TB endurance alongwith 10,000 TBW to give Chia farmers great performance. 

The most astonishing thing about Sabrent PlotRipper is its claim to provide 54,000 TBW is just amazing. Let’s see how it boils down in time with Chia farming and plotting. We would also come to know how well Sabrent deals with warranty issues.
