2nd Generation PCIe 4.0x4 ControllerN/AThe 2nd generation PCIe 4.0 controller PS5018-E18 deliver sequential read/write up to 7GB/s with 3D TLC NAND Flash. The E18 controller is built with the advanced 12nm process ensuring sufficient computing power. Also it supports up to 8 NAND Flash channel with 32CE DDR4 SLC caching and meets NVMe 1.4.N/AN/ANAND Flash Selected for High Quality and PerformanceN/ASelected High Speed 3D TLC NAND Flash (1200MT/s)N/AThe 3D TLC NAND Flash(96L) is operating at 1200MT/s Which is 50 % more than the prevision version that leads to better performance.N/AN/AXtreme Storage PerformanceN/AWith 2nd generation PCIe 4.0 controller E18 AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD delivers blazing speeds: up to 7000 MB/s for sequential read and up to 5500MB/s sequential write. Sequential Read performance of PCIe 4.0 SSDs is up to 2 times faster than the PCIe 3.0 SSDs. Get ready to enter the next generation of computing with faster and smoother gaming streaming and graphics intensive rendering.N/AN/AOptimized Aluminum Heat Spreaders with Nanocarbon Coating for 20% CoolerN/AChallenged passive cooling to maximize surface area for heat dissipation with advanced thermal technology Nanocarbon coating. Applied with dual side high conductivity thermal pad ensures the heat transferring to the heatsink. The 7mm height heatsink is compatible with all the M.2 slots including the one under graphic card.N/AN/AEfficient Heat Spreader DesignN/ACompared with regular heat spreader the new high efficient heat spreader improves thermal dissipation to extend 46% more time running at high speed. In addition compared to the one without heatsink AORUS 7000s Gen4 SSD running 5 times longer at 7GB/s. Enjoy the smoother & upgraded storage performance.N/AN/AWhy is keeping an SSDs at lower temperatures so important?N/AHigher working temperature may cause data loss. The degradation factor of data loss could be a hundred times higher. With Heat Spreaders the AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD can operate at lower working temperatures to improve data storage reliability. Furthermore SSDs can running at extreme performance longer.N/AN/ASSD Tool BoxN/AThe newly updated SSD Tool Box is a software that gives users an overview of the SSD Status and various aspects such as model name FW version health condition and sensor temperature. Moreover users can clear all the data with the Secure Erase function. You can download the SSD Tool Box from the link.
