The manufacturer is claiming to have the world's first ever M.2 SSD with RGB lights and a modular heatsink to prevent performance throttling. SKUs range from 256 GB up to 2 TB with prices starting at $80 USD.

For PC enthusiasts, there's more to just buying components with the highest numbers or fastest performance. Every part must also look extravagant and have that visual "wow" factor to lighten up the room or LAN party. To cater to this high-end market segment, Asura has launched its high-performance Genesis Xtreme M.2 NVMe SSD series with a host of visual extras not found on most M.2 SSDs in the market.

Features include RGB lighting and a modular dual heatsink design to fit onto a wider range of motherboards and desktop form factors. Performance will also be one of the fastest for its class at 3500 MB/s sequential read and 3000 MB/s sequential write. The TLC NAND flash modules themselves are provided by Toshiba and based on the Phison E12 controller.

As impressive as the SSDs may be, it's unlikely that they would fit onto most laptops because of the uniquely large heatsinks encompassing the drives from top to bottom. Running a Genesis Xtreme SSD without the heatsink would probably result in performance throttling over time.

The Genesis Xtreme M.2 series is now shipping in 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB capacities. To boost awareness amongst enthusiasts, Asura will be running contests from now until June 14th for prizes such as an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, Antec DA601 case, and other PC components.
