Gigabyte Aorus 500GB M.2 Gen4 NVMe SSD Overview
Gigabyte Aorus 500GB SSD
World First PCIe 4.0×4 Controller
The World First PCIe 4.0×4 Controller, Phison PS5016-E16 controller, made by 28nm manufacturing technology. The advanced fabrication process ensures PS5016-E16 has enough computing power for ECC processing when adopting the latest 3D TLC NAND flash. PS5016-E16 also features eight NAND channels with 32 CE targets, a DDR4 DRAM cache, and a PCIe 4.0×4 interface. As for features, the chip supports the NVMe 1.3 protocol, LDPC error correction, and Wear Leveling, Over-Provision technologies to improve the reliability and durability of SSDs.
TOSHIBA BiCS4 96 Layers 3D TLC (800MT/s)
Toshiba BiCS4 NAND Flash optimizes circuitry and architecture by increasing to 96 layers for higher storage space per unit area. 800MT/s throughput on the AORUS NVMe Gen 4 SSD far exceeds that of PCIe 3.0×4 devices for superior storage performance.
Xtreme Storage Performance
With the new PCIe 4.0 controller, AORUS NVMe Gen 4 SSD delivers blazing speeds: up to 5,000 MB/s for sequential read, and up to 2,500MB/s sequential write. Sequential Read performance of PCIe 4.0 SSDs is up to 40% faster than PCIe 3.0 SSDs. Get ready to enter the next generation of computing with faster and smoother, gaming, streaming, and graphics-intensive rendering.
Full Body Copper Thermal Solution for Outstanding PCIe 4.0 SSD Performance
The Full Body Copper Heatsink takes into account the heat transfer from key components on both the front and back of the device, the controller and NAND Flash. Full copper heatsinks have 69% higher heat transfer capacity compared to aluminum heatsinks giving AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD the best heat dissipation for reading/write performance.
Efficient Copper Heat Spreader Design
Compared with a plated M.2 heat spreader, new efficient copper heat spreaders with 27 fins add more surface area which improves thermal transfer from heating sources to obtain thermal balance sooner. Moreover, an Optimized fin array design does great heat exchange with any direction of airflow. Both unique designs make sure key components of PCIe 4.0 SSD keep the suitable working temperature under ultra-high transfer rate.
