UCS B200 M3 100GB SSD drive difference?

Does anyone know the difference between and have tech specs for...

UCS-SD100G0KA2-G

and

UCS-SD100G0KA2-E

Both are 100GB SSD drives.

The  UCS-SD100G0KA2-G is a 100GB SSD Enterprise Value Drive US List is $979 Is this a MLC drive

The UCS-SD100G0KA2-E is a 100GB Enterprise Performance Drive. US List is $2,430 is this a SLC

Single Cell Multi Cell?

I cannot find tech spec differences anywhere and assume its SLC vs MLC.

The difference is write endurance.

The most expensive drive, UCS-SD100G0KA2-E, can tolerate more write intensive workload, and the cheaper one is focused for read intensive applications.

Thank you.

I received this answer as well which is inline with your answer.

Enterprise Performance SSD's have higher endurance, and hence support workload which are more write intensive ( for ex: we support Intel 710 SSD's, which supports 5X full SSD writes): http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/solid-state-drives/solid-state-drives-710-series.html

vs.

Enterprise Value SSD's are targeted for read intensive application,  we support Micron SSD (supports 1X full SSD writes/days) http://www.micron.com/products/solid-state-storage/enterprise-sata-ssd/p400e-enterprise-sata-ssd

The major difference is the write endurance.  The more expensive drive can tolerate over 500 GB of writes every day over the warrantee period.  The less expensive drive can only tolerate about 100 GB of writes every day.
