ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the SX7000 SSD as part of its growing XPG gaming brand. The SX7000 uses an M.2 2280 form factor and carefully-sorted 3D TLC NAND Flash, paired with an SMI controller. The SX7000 interfaces with motherboards via PCI Express 3.0 x4 and meets NVMe 1.2 specifications to deliver 1800MB/s read, 850MB/s write, and 130K/140K IOPS. The SX7000 is available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB, making the most of the flexibility of 3D NAND to present consumers with greater choice based on budget and need.
Extra-fast PCIe3x4 M.2 for a wider audience
The SX7000 connects to desktop and notebook PCs via low profile M.2 2280 and channels data through four-lane PCI Express 3.0. It uses 3D TLC NAND, meticulously sorted to ADATA standards, making the SX7000 a more accessible first-time M.2 purchase for many users. With NVMe 1.2, the SX7000 represents a massive upgrade compared to SATA SSDs and hard drives. Read speeds go up to 1800MB/s while write performance reaches 850MB/s. Those equal roughly ten times HDD performance, and compare very favorably with the 500MB/s read/write of SATA SSDs. Read and write IOPS figures are also at least 40% higher than SATA SSDs. The SX7000 is ideal as a fast boot/OS drive for first time buyers, cutting down boot delays to a few seconds. As a storage drive it offers significantly lower loading times in games and other applications.Add a comment
