Today, Gigabyte announced the release of the AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD with up to 32TB of storage and speeds of up to 28GB/s. This dual-slot PCIe 4.0 x16 drive features a massive heatsink with twin fans and looks more like a graphics card than a solid-state drive. The high capacity is possible due to eight 4TB NVMe drives coupled with Phison’s PS5018-E18 controller. Pricing and availability have not been released at this time.

On our test bench today we have the RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC from GIGABYTE. The “Super” line of GPUs was introduced by Nvidia in late June of this year which, coincidently coincided with AMD’s launch of their new Navi-based RX 5700 line of video cards. Speculation at the time was that this move was intended to counter AMD’s perceived price/performance staging of their soon to be launched RX GPUs. AMD’s performance levels were mostly speculation at the time but rumored to be at or near the RTX 2070 levels with a similar price point. Whether or not these rumors were true the RTX Super graphics cards were released intending to slide in between their base model (RTX 2070) and the next tier (RTX 2080). These cards were sporting an increased CUDA core count much like the “Ti” versions of the past but these new Super cards also have increased RT and Tensor core counts.
