XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade NVMe M.2 SSD Review – 7GB/s at Low Temps in a 11th Gen Laptop

LAPTOP TESTING THE XPG GAMMIX S70 BLADE NMVE SSD

Perhaps the key testing that we wanted to highlight in this report is our benchmark results while the SSD was being used in our Dell Inspiron laptop shown here:

This is the Dell Inspiron 5502 15.6? FHD (1920 x 1080) with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7- 1165G7@2.8GHz, 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM, 1TB Silicon Power A80 PCIe 3 NVMe M.2 SSD, 720P Webcam, Backllit Keyboard, FP Reader, Win 10 Home, Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (2×2),  and USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C.

We have switched off the factory SSD for our XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade NVMe SSD with the newly supplied firmware and we did a fresh install with Win 11 upgrade.  No optimizations whatsoever have been done to this system. The laptop is found here on Amazon. We should state right off that we really don’t expect performance in any laptop to equal that of our Test Bench testing simply because laptops and ultra books contain mobile processors which are built to accommodate a totally different environment.  For example, we could all agree that performance might be a bit lower as mobile processors are built to be much cooler.
