The ADATA company has set before the public its fastest solid-state drive under the XPG SX8200 code name. This device is performed in the M.2 2280 form factor and based on the 2nd generation 3D NAND TLC 64-layer architecture. The novelty got the SMI controller and will be released in 240, 480 and 960 GB variants.
XPG SX8200 features excellent performance measures owing to the presence of the PCIe Gen3 x4 interface, the NVMe 1.3 specification and SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer technologies support. These figures, however, depend on the model’s capacity.
According to the CrystalDiskMark benchmark the maximum sequential read/write speed reaches 3,200/1,700 MBps. AS SSD Benchmark cites the following speed rates: 2,500/1,600 MBps. At the same time, 4 KB random read/write figures are 310,000/280,000. TBW is 160 TB by the 240 GB model, 320 TB by the 480 GB version and 640 TB be the 960 GB sample.
