HGST is announcing a summer release for their new 12Gb/s MLC SAS SSD family, the first 12Gb/s SAS SSDs on the market. Three models comprise the new line including the Ultrastar SSD800MH, Ultrastar SSD800MM and Ultrastar SSD1000MR. The new SAS SSDs utilize co-developed Intel/HGST controllers as well as high endurance 25nm MLC NAND. HGST designed these new drives for the most performance demanding applications such as high-frequency trading, online banking, cloud computing, online gaming, and big data analytics. These applications will benefit from hot caching delivered by the new 12Gb/s SAS SSDs.

Does each model use a different kind of NAND or is there something else going on to account for such large disparities in specified write endurance?

Different levels of over-provisioning and targeted endurance levels basically.
