Gigabyte unveiled the Aorus RAID SSD, which is one of the fastest SSD models in the world with its design and performance. The card consists of four PCIe 3.0 512GB NVMe SSDs, offering 6.3 GBps read and 5.9 GBps write speeds.
Taiwan-based hardware manufacturer Gigabyte came up with a new SSD that promises more than storage solutions. The company introduced the Gigabyte Aorus RAID SSD, a 2TB storage device with a PCIe 3.0 interface that resembles PCI Express graphics cards.
Comes with a five-year warranty, Gigabyte says the card uses an enterprise-class NVMe RAID controller with four PCIe 3.0 512GB NVMe SSDs running basically on RAID-0. The Gigabyte Aorus RAID SSD has a read speed of 6.3 GBps and a write speed of 5.9 GBps. The SSD is surprisingly fast and delivers superior performance as a system drive or storage.
Gigabyte’s new SSD wins acclaim for its graphics card design
As expected, the storage chips take advantage of the 3D TLC architecture and include the Phison E12 controllers. Thus, the smaller scale promises more size, higher performance, lower power consumption and more durable memory cells. Gigabyte also offers a dedicated Aorus storage manager application and an SSD tool that allows users to change the RAID array.
Another alternative would be the OWC Accelsior 4M2 NVMe storage solution, available in capacities up to 8TB and prices starting at $ 520 (1TB). OWC also offers a five-year warranty and allows users to add two of these drives to RAID-0 to provide up to 16TB of storage.
Gigabyte hasn’t announced any prices yet. Last year, the company introduced the world’s fastest and largest PCIe 4.0 SSD, the AORUS Gen 4 NVMe AIC 8TB. Up to 15000 MB / s, the SSD outshines the 5GB / s write speed of PCIe 4.0 SSDs.
