ADATA is announcing the launch of their new XPG SX6000 Pro PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 SSD. The combination of 3D NAND Flash and the NVMe 1.3 protocol creates an SSD that delivers excellent performance and up to 1TB of capacity. The SX6000 Pro’s single-sided design results in a thinner-than-standard M.2 2280 SSD, providing a higher level of compatibility and a more viable upgrade option from SATA SSDs.
ADATA is offering the SX6000 Pro in capacities of 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. Users looking to improve from SATA SSD performance will realize tangible results when upgrading to the SX6000 Pro, which offers a superb cost-to-performance ratio. The 3D TLC NAND, PCIe Gen 3×4 interface and the NVMe 1.3 protocol combine to provide sequential read speeds of up to 2100MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 1500MB/s. Random read speeds are stated as up to 250,000 IOPS, with random write speeds of up to 240,000 IOPS. This is nearly 4 x the performance of a typical SATA SSD.
The single-sided design of the SX6000 Pro is a mere 2.15mm thick, which is much slimmer than a standard M.2 2280 SSD. This design makes the SX6000 Pro ideal for use in notebooks, laptops, ultrabooks and small-form-factor desktops, with either the latest Intel® or AMD platforms.
The XPG SX6000 Pro also features a number of performance- and lifespan-enhancing features, including Host Memory Buffer and SLC caching to ensure better workload distribution and sustained peak performance, even when rendering video or loading and playing AAA game titles. The SX6000 Pro also utilizes LDPC (Low-Density-Parity-Check) error correction code technology to detect and repair a wider range of data errors, resulting in more reliable data transfers and increased drive lifespan.
As with all ADATA SSDs, the XPG SX6000 Pro passes rigorous testing and screening to deliver utmost reliability and quality. ADATA is backing the XPG SX6000 Pro with a five-year limited warranty. For more information, you can view the XPG SX6000 Pro product page here.
