Test system specs

This is the system we used to test the Team T-Force Delta Max

Motherboard: MSI B550 Pro VDH Wi-Fi

The Team T-Force Delta Max is a SATA SSD joins the expansive ranks of fellow SATA SSDs with an RGB twist. At a price of $120 (about £90, AU$155) for a 1TB drive, it’s not making a name for itself in terms of value, but it’s certainly not the most expensive drive out there. It even manages to land near the $129 Samsung 870 QVO.

What Team T-Force is offering with the Delta Max at this price is what helps it stand out. For one, the Delta Max is an SSD with TLC NAND rather than the QLC found in many budget drives. This TLC NAND tends to offer better endurance than competing QLC-based storage. That said, the 1TB T-Force Delta Max is offering an endurance rating of 360TBW (terabytes written), which isn’t higher than the QLC-based Samsung 870 QVO, though it is higher than the Intel 660p PCIe SSD.
