The Taiwanese actress is increasing her supply in the storage market with faster models
We are not opposed to seeing more and more companies starting to offer consumers drives SSDAnd now this trend seems to be expanding not only in the "old" SATA drives, but also in theNVMe Even more compact and advanced, thanks to platforms that offer Phison and-Silicon Motion To do this.
Now you can add Gigabyte which sells to us all from worlds of motherboards and video cards to the Names Exchange from which NVMe drives can be purchased for your system - with minimalist models that do not even include any dedicated branding but simply bear the name of the manufacturer, along with the description required as M .2 PCIe SSD.
Gigabyte models are based on the Phison E8T controller on the PCI-Express 3.0 × 2 interface, half the physical interface of modern M.2 connectors, combined with chips NAND TLC from Micron or from home Toshiba (Depending on the specific model), and with the HBM (Memory Host Buffer) technology that allows you to dispense dedicated cache for use with some of the memoryRAM System to speed up random performance.
The end result gives continuous transfer speeds of up to 1,200 MB per second in read and up to 800 MB per write (for 256GB models), combined with a random performance of up to 80,000IOPS in read and up to 150,000 IOPS in writing in small 4KB files - not close to drives NVMe Leading and prestigious, but still enough to give priority over most traditional SATA drives, including a promise for lower power consumption. The drives will be offered with a 3-year warranty with a reasonable write-up of up to 0.71 from the drive volume per day (0.71DWPD) plus an average MTBF of 1.5 million hours between critical failures.
DrivesSSD Will be available in volumes of between 256GB, 128GB and 512GB, with the two lower volumes being available first, in the coming weeks - at recommended prices of 50 dollars and 70 dollars respectively, which will be an interesting competition for the Kingston A1000 in the lowest market segment of NVMe technology. Kingston's half-terabyte competitor can now be found on Amazon at a nice price of 100 dollars (excluding VAT and shipping) - is there any chance that the offer of GIGABYTE Will you wink even more? We'll probably soon find out.
