If you have the PCI-E lanes to support it... This is hilariously potent. Read/writes out of this world, that only workstations would ever truly find useful, if even that. For games, you'll never worry about load times again. [Aug '19 xDEFCONx]


5000 MB/s of transfer speed? Check. 1TB? Check. Sleek looking heatsink? Check. This PCIe 4.0 SSD may be probably one of the sleekiest and best SSD i have ever seen. [Feb '20 ColdSpy]
