There’s another hot new ZADAK product on the market, and this one is going to take gamers one step beyond. It’s the TWSG4S M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD, and it delivers read-write speeds that many Gen4 x4 SSDs can’t – 7,400 and 7,000 MB/s, respectively. This is an ideal expansion SSD for new game consoles and PCs, giving players the chance to dominate their games. It ships with two powerful heatsinks in the box. One is made of ultra-thin graphene and the other of aluminum, and they reduce the operating temperatures by 15% and 35% respectively.
Choose The Heatsink That Suits Your Needs
Either will fit inside the PS5, but notebooks will only permit the installation of the graphene heatsink. PC gamers will quickly see the advantages of this SSD, but it’s also fully compliant with the technical requirements and physical dimensions of Sony’s PS5, so console gamers will love it too.
