The new NX500 models will connect to your motherboard in the connector PCI-Express 3.0, and guarantee performance that will compete with the best that the storage market has to offer
Although there are new owners, it seems that business at Corsair is continuing as usual, with a range of products only expanding every few weeks - this time with the driveSSD Its first coming as a card expansion interface PCI-Express, Rather than a dedicated SATA or M.2 interface.
The new model receives the name Neutron NX500 and comes equipped with a body Cooling Elegant and significant in its dimensions, which the company claims helps reduce temperatures by up to 20 degrees (compared to an exposed drive with no additional heat dissipation mechanism, most likely), and ensures a maximum possible level of performance without slowdowns due to hardware protection mechanisms.
The drive will be offered with Phison's popular and advanced quad-core PS5007-E7, built-in cache DDR3 Gigabytes and gigabytes of storage, 400 gigabytes, 800 gigabytes, and 1,600 gigabytes based on planetary MLC chips Toshiba - When the actual storage volumes on the drives will be substantially larger than those visible to the user, and will serve as a backup that will extend the scope of work and longevity that the product is capable of carrying.
All drive models will be offered with a five-year warranty that includes an impressive total writing volume of 698 terabytes for the 400 GB model, 1,396 terabytes for the mid-volume and also 2,792 terabytes for the upper volume - which means writing and deleting Almost all information about the drive every day, for five years, without voiding the warranty on it.
And what about the performance itself? Here too you really will not find anything to complain about with continuous read and write speeds of up to 3 GB per second and 2.4 GB per second respectively, as well as maximum random performance with small 4 kilobytes of up to 300,000IOPS per read and up to 270,000IOPS in writing.
The only thing that much less winks at us when it comes to the NX500 is its price, which like any drive based on the Phison E7 will be very expensive - $ 320 per volume storage Of 400 GB, $ 660 for 800 GB and probably over $ 1,400 for 1.6 terabytes in the top version. The price may become a little more sane when you consider the extra "hidden" volume, but it still constitutes a drive that will only suit those who want uncompromising reliability and longevity without too much dependence on the price tag. what do you think?
