REAL WORLD FILE TRANSFER COMPARISON
We have put the XPG Spectrix S40G NVMe M.2 SSD beside the best in the business for our true to life data testing. In this test, we simply place 15GB files representing music, video, pictures and operating systems onto the target drive. We then copy each file from one place on the target disk to another, recording the time taken for the transfer.
REVIEW ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
In the beginning, we spoke of our enthusiasm for testing a controller just a bit outside what we might see mainstream, this being the Realtek RTS 5762 8-channel NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 chip. Our results are pretty much to be expected, in that, they are everywhere. It is the reason we decide to provide the results of so many programs, to include a bit of reality testing.
The XPG Spectrix S40G is a very attractive SSD and it is RGB with software to configure just how the LEDs work so that is of huge benefit. The drive does push out 3.5GB/s throughput and boasts of over 1/4 million read and write IOPS which speaks very well to user needs. With a 5-year warranty and the configurable RGB, pricing for this SSD is pretty decent and we found it on Amazon the day of this report, from ADATA, for $54.99 (256GB), $79.99 (512GB), $159.99 (1TB), and $309.99 (2TB).
