ADATA has launched another in its SX line of NVMe SSDs, this one using a Realtek RTS5762 Controller. ADATA is a brand known in the storage world for cheap but reliable storage that provides a solid bang for the buck.
Here’s more on the new SSDs:
ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announces the launch of the XPG SX8100 PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive (SSD). Utilizing PCIe Gen3x4, 3D NAND Flash, and featuring 3500/3000MB/s read and write, the SX8100 M.2 2280 SSD gives DIY enthusiasts, overclockers and graphics professionals the performance they seek.
Supporting PCIe Gen3x4 and the NVMe 1.3 standard the SX8100 delivers read and write speeds of up to 3500/3000MB per second and random read and write of 300K/240K IOPS. Along with 3D NAND Flash, it offers high capacities, efficiency, and durability, while the M.2 2280 form factor supports the latest Intel and AMD platforms. With SLC caching and a DRAM cache buffer the SX8100 accelerates PC performance for quick access to files and game loading.
The SX8100 supports LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors. Meanwhile, E2E (End-to-End) Data Protection and RAID Engine ensure security, integrity, and durability. Every component on the SX8100 has passed meticulous screening, testing, and certification. What’s more, it ships with the comfort of a 5-year warranty.
Niche Gamer’s Take: With pricing aimed at $89.99 for the 512GB and $329.99 for the 2TB, this is geared to provide solid bang for the buck to those who do not need the fastest performance but do want something much faster than a SATA based drive.
