GIGABYTE has recenlty announced its fastest and highest-performing SSD to date – AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD with upo 32TB capacity and 28 GB/s ultra-fast access speed. This high capacity and extreme performance SSD builds in eight 4TB 2nd generation PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs with PHISON PS5018-E18 controller. The SSD offers ultra-high transfer bandwidth and superior access performance through its RAID configuration.
AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD features an ultimate thermal design with large aluminum finned heatsink (giving it a graphics card type look), 10 temperature sensors, M.2 baseplate for passive cooling, and an active dual-fan heat dissipation design to avoid throttling by overheating under high-speed operation and data damage or loss. The system airflow, the large air volume of the dual fans, and the thermal vent on the baffle plate create active heat dissipation which offers the high performance of the SSD under ultra-high-speed operation without throttling.
AORUS XTREME’s exclusive SSD ToolBox gives the real-time status of eight 4TB M.2 SSDs and temperature monitoring of SSDs with the help of 10 thermal sensors. Storage Manager allows users to configure a RAID 0 array with a single click for impressive storage performance and has three fan operating modes of fan speed adjustment for silent and effective cooling, which keeps the SSD cool and helps in performing at a high level. AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD is expected to give a non-throttling experience for users who want high capacity and breakthrough performance.
GIGABYTE’s new SSD is designed with a high-quality, hairline brushed baseplate with a curved edge. It combines with 8 sets of 4TB AORUS Gen4 7000s level SSDs which are based on PHISON PS5018-E18 controllers. By the RAID configuration, provides a large capacity of up to 32 TB and increases the sequential read speed to 28 GB/s, which is 4 times more speedy than AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD making it the highest performance storage device in the market.
The AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0, which can be used on older chipsets. You need to be aware of the fact that it is designed for PCIe 4.0, so its performance would be limited with a PCIe 3.0 connection.
GIGABYTE hasn’t released pricing details for the SSD, but it is likely that it will be priced at several thousand dollars.
