GIGABYTE Releases The AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD Bringing Forth The PCIe 4.0 Era

Bla­zing Fast Read/Write Speeds With A Full Body Cop­per Heat­sink For The Best SSD Per­for­mance


Tai­pei, Tai­wan, May 29th, 2019 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a lea­ding manu­fac­tu­rer of mother­boards and gra­phics cards, today announ­ced the new NVMe archi­tec­tu­re and PCIe 4.0 inter­face based M.2 SSD. The new SSD comes in 3 dif­fe­rent capa­ci­ty sizes, uses a full body cop­per heat­sink to bols­ter heat dis­si­pa­ti­on during ope­ra­ti­on, and deli­vers sequen­ti­al read/write speeds at 5000/4400 MB/s. GIGABYTE Ultra Dura­ble cer­ti­fied, the new SSD has under­go­ne rigo­rous stress tests to ensu­re that the SSD per­forms at an eli­te level users expect from an AORUS pro­duct.

AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD uses an all new PCIe 4.0 con­trol­ler with Toshi­ba Bisc4 Nand Flash memo­ry par­ti­cles, pro­vi­ding up to a 40% per­for­mance boost over PCIe 3.0 which trans­la­tes to 5000MB/s sequen­ti­al read speeds. Whe­ther rea­ding data or boo­ting up games, the SSD boasts data trans­fer rates at unpre­ce­den­ted speeds. The new series offers 3 capa­ci­ty opti­ons at 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, comes in 2280 modu­le sizing, and sup­ports the PCIe 4.0x4 M.2 inter­face. Whe­re­as SATA SSDs use data and power cables, the M.2 SSDs are easier to con­fi­gu­re with its cable free design which also impro­ves air­flow in the chas­sis, increa­sing over­all heat miti­ga­ti­on.

AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD offers excel­lent heat dis­si­pa­ti­on with its full body cop­per heat­sinks and LAIRD high con­duc­tivi­ty ther­mal pad so heat gene­ra­ted from ope­ra­ti­on of the device is quick­ly trans­fer­red to the heat­sinks. The sty­lish heat­sink design is com­po­sed of around 30 fins which have been sand­blas­ted, offe­ring grea­ter heat dis­si­pa­ti­on sur­face area wit­hout dimi­nis­hing the strength of the heat­sink while also easing crow­ding around the M.2 slot area with its space effi­ci­ent design. Com­pa­red to SSDs with sin­gle side coverage or smal­ler heat­sinks, AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD pro­vi­des supe­ri­or heat dis­si­pa­ti­on so it can miti­ga­te the heat gene­ra­ted at high tem­pe­ra­tures when the SSD is in ope­ra­ti­on, exten­ding the pro­duct life­span and bols­te­ring the SSD per­for­mance.

When the PCIe 4.0 spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on was announ­ced, GIGABYTE was alrea­dy a step ahead in pre­pa­ra­ti­on for the deve­lop­ment of the pro­duct. Through the smal­ler size and supe­ri­or per­for­mance attri­bu­tes of the NVMe PCIe 4.0 M.2 inter­face, per­for­mance see­king users will be able to unleash the best SSD per­for­mance ‚” said Jack­son Hsu, Direc­tor of the GIGABYTE Chan­nel Solu­ti­ons Pro­duct Deve­lop­ment Divi­si­on. “GIGABYTE AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD fur­ther advan­ces the stan­dards set by our pre­vious SSD pro­duc­ts. The SSD ful­fills many users’ expec­ta­ti­ons and users are get­ting bet­ter per­for­mance, a bet­ter ther­mal design, a GIGABYTE Ultra Dura­ble cer­ti­fied pro­duct, and a nice selec­tion of size capa­ci­ties at 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB.”

To gua­ran­tee the most sta­ble and best read/write per­for­mance, GIGABYTE stress tested the M.2 SSDs with mother­boards under rigo­rous tes­ting con­di­ti­ons. Under various high-load test soft­ware with high tem­pe­ra­tures and high pres­su­re, the M.2 SSDs have suc­cess­ful­ly pas­sed the stress tests and are rea­dy to per­form so users can expect the best pro­duct qua­li­ty and dura­bi­li­ty.

GIGABYTE NVMe Gen4 M.2 SSD is rea­dy for release and will soon be avail­ab­le to users. For more details, plea­se visit the offi­ci­al GIGABYTE web­site:
