ADATA unveils the XPG Gammix S11 NVMe SSD
NVMe SSDs have clearly demonstrated their superiority over the SATA3 ones, and, even though pricing is not yet on par, the premium paid for the speed boost is really worth it. This year, prices for the entry-level NVMe SSDs have reached their lowest points, quickly approaching SATA3 affordability thanks to Patriot and Kingston. However, gamers who prefer to get the most out of the NVMe technology would surely appreciate the latest ADATA XPG Gammix S11 SS, which provides greatly improved read/write speeds compared to SATA3 and entry-level NVMe models.
The Gammix S11 is compatible with the PCIe Gen3 X4 NVMe 1.3 standard and comes in the M.2 2280 form-factor. This would usually allow it to fit inside laptops, as well, but, due to its sleek red/black heatsink It uses, the Gammix S11 can only fit inside PCs. Toshiba’s 2nd generation 64-layer 3D NAND flash memory technology is allowing the Gammix S11 to reach read speeds of up to 3200 MB/s and write speeds of up to 1700 MB/s, while also offering LDPC (low density parity check) support for increased data integrity. Additionally, technologies like the RAID Engine and Data Shaping offer extended lifespan and increased stability.
The five-year warranty is more than enough, even though the Gammix S11 has a 2-million-hour MTBF rating that was once a strong point for HDDs. This model will come in 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB capacities, but pricing and availability has yet to be determined.
