ADATA drops new XPG Gammix S11 PCIe SSD with NVMe 1.3 support
ADATA has been very aggressive in the SSD space and they just announced a new SSD called the XPG Gammix S11.
The Gammix S11 comes in an M.2 2280 form factor and is distinguishable by its fancy red heatsink. According to ADATA, the heatsink reduces operating temperatures by up to 10 degrees Celsius, which can reduce the occurrence of performance throttling.
It features a controller from Silicon Motion and it uses what the company calls "second generation 3D NAND." It also supports the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and NVme 1.3.
Thanks to SLC Caching and a DRAM cache buffer, the Gammix S11 offers sequential read performance of up to 3,200MB/s and sequential write performance of up to 1,700MB/s.
Maximum 4K random reads and writes are rated at up to 310,000 IOPS and 280,000 IOPS respectively.
The Gammix S11 is available in 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacities and will come with a 5-year long warranty.
