XPG pitches its latest Atom 50 M.2 2280 SSDs at those planning PC builds for their creative or professional output; then again, the ADATA brand also hints one might be ideal as new backups for their PlayStation 5 (PS5) storage. The drives are rated for NVMe 1.4 and PCIe Gen4 x4 for potentially blazing maximum read and write speeds, and come with a 5-year warranty in their new markets.

ADATA's "high-performance" PC and components brand XPG has announced new SSDs for those looking at new such drives for their M.2 2280-compatible motherboard (or PS5). As such, the Atom 50 drives have a low-key look, although their maker asserts that they are made with nothing but "high-quality", reliability-tested integrated circuits.

They also exhibit heatsinks that go with their esthetic and are also rated to reduce their chips' temperatures by up to 15%. The Atom 50s are also compatible with the up-to-date NVMe 1.4 and PCIe Gen4x4 standards, which, according to XPG, equip them to support read speeds of 5,000 megabytes per second (MB/s) and write speeds of up to 4,500MB/s. per second.

The Atom 50 series helps to handle a rig's data secuirty with AES 256-bit encryption and Low Density Parity Check Code. Its memory also supports Host Memory Buffer and SLC caching, which might raise 4K random read and write speeds to as much as 440K and 400K IOPS respectively.

Accordingly, XPG is confident enough in the new drives to issue a 5-year warranty with every one sold through Amazon in Germany, Italy, Spain, France and the UK. They start at €80 for a 512GB Atom 50, or €145 for one of 1TB in capacity.
