Gigabyte has just announced the release of its new AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem M.2 2TB SSD with sequential read speeds of up to 7 GB/s and write speed up to 6.85GB/s. This is made possible due to its large dual heat pipe cooler and a Phison eight-channel 4th Gen E18 controller. Naturally, to reach these speeds you will need one of AMD’s X570/B550 or Intel’s Z590 / B560 / Z490 / H470 motherboards (with a Rocket Lake-based CPU). Pricing is not available at this time. Here is Gigabytes’ official press release.
GIGABYTE Unleashes the AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD, Your Smartest Choice for High-speed SSD
M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME enables the extreme performance of 7GB/s read speed without throttling
May 24th, 2021 – GIGABYTE Technology, one of the top global manufacturers of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware solutions, announces today the latest AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD with up to7GB/s read speed while optimizing passive thermal dissipation, which promises no throttling under long-lasting operation. Through the SSD Tool Box application, users can have an instant control on overall operation of SSD.
AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD adopts the PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 interface and it equips the latest Phison E18 selected 8-channel controller, which provides users with ultimate random access rate, as well as the high speed 3D-TLC NAND Flash and SLC cache design that brings the PCIe 4.0 into full play. With the read speed up to7 GB/s and write speed up to 6.85 GB/s, AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD can power up content creators, gamers, and users eager for extreme performance.
The AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD is the best solution for the extreme users who prefer an advanced thermal design. M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME with Nanocabon coating, the high conductivity pad design, the optimization on the height and dissipation area, as well as the enhanced double heat-pipes are some of the changes that promise the consistent cooling and high performance even at situations with minimum airflow. Under the real test, AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD can maintain extreme read speed of 7 GB/s for long lasting operation.
“High-speed SSDs generate heat on full speed operation, and normally thermal throttling is implemented as a safety feature to prevent data loss, or wear-out the memory chips and controllers. The throttling state engages to maintain the stability and durability, however it slows down the performance and it reduces the transfer rate.” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. “AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD uses ultra-durable design and high quality materials for high-speed performance. Moreover, it optimizes the premium thermal standards set by our previous 7000s SSD products to provide users with an outstanding performance. Even without air flow, the thermal solution is capable of preventing the thermal throttling that might occur at high-speed operation of SSD, thus boost the system performance.”
AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD is already in the market and it supports all the motherboards with 2280 NVMe M.2 interface design. To release the breakthrough performance of read speed up to 7GB/s , AMD X570 / B550 motherboards or Intel Z590 / B560 / Z490 / H470 motherboards with next-gen Intel® Core™ processors supported are highly-recommended. With GIGABYTE R&D’s professional adjustment, comprehensive verification, software enhancement, and the 5 years warranty service, GIGABYTE motherboards offers more stability with higher performance, which is definitely the best choice for users.
