S.M.A.R.T refers to Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology, which is a built-in monitoring function of SSDs and hard drives. This technology allows users to monitor the status of their devices, performance monitoring and control using software specifically designed functionality of S.M.A.R.T. All Teamgroup SSDs support S.M.A.R.T.
Due to limitations in data writing/erasing times of the Flash memory, SSD firmware is designed with wear-leveling technology so as to extend product life and service time. Also referred to as storage block writing/erasing leveling, the wear conditions of each block are leveled equally for the optimal extension of product life to meet system requirements.
When users wish to over-clock the memory module, they must manually adjust relevant parameters, such as clock speed, working voltage, CL, tRCD, tRP and tRAS from the BIOS. Therefore, unless the user has rich overclocking experience, he will need to try different combinations in order to find out the best settings for the module to display its optimal performance. Therefore, it is time- and labor consuming, especially to beginners. As a solution, NVIDIA extended the SPD by adding more parameter combinations to the unused space, about 29 bytes, in conventional SPD. As long as the supported motherboards are used, the BIOS can automatically detect the optimal module settings to easily release the performance of modules. This feature is called the EPP, Enhanced Performance Profiles.
