Ok this really isn't fair. You are killing me here. Have you tested start times in various SSDs? Include SATA, NVMe, PCIe, DRAM, DRAMless...etc. Or is your knowledge drawn from what you read on the 'net'. I am all for getting into a conversation in detail and not trying to run and find an article supporting what you say every time i throw a question your way...at which time you pick and choose what you will answer.Temporel wrote: ↑ Wrong again.
A copy of the Map Table is constantly stored on the NANDs (in case of power failure) and is updated before shut down.
You almost never strat from scratch.

And let's not forget... you have stated that everyone interested in this SSD only cares about boot times. That needs to stay right there where you said it.
AND... You need to read this very carefully since you quoted it and are relying on it to say that the mapping tables are somehow stored in SDRAM when the power is off -
A mapping table is maintained in SSD. In general, DRAM is on board in SSD, which is used to store temporary data of program running and will be lost when power fails. The mapping table is stored in SDRAM (convenient for quick access), and several mapping tables are stored in NAND Flash (to prevent loss of mapping relationship after power failures). What’s more, the mapping tables in NAND Flash are updated regularly.
