XPG launches Gammix S70 PCIe 4 SSD w/ Speeds up to 7,400 MB/s

XPG has launched its third PCIe 4.0 SSD in the form of the Gammix S70 paired with its proprietary CoolArmor heatsink.The new SSD boasts read speeds of up to 7,400MB/s and write speeds of up to 6,400MB/s (sequential). XPG had already launched two Gen 4 SSDs before the S70, namely the Gammix S50 and S50 Lite.

The drive is based on 3D NAND flash expected and features the M.2 connector. It also comes with End-to-End (E2E) Data Protection and AES 256-bit Encryption to ensure your data remains safe and sound. There are two variants, namely a 1TB and 2TB model, and both come with 5 years of warranty.

I have to say, this generation the mainstream SSD vendors have really upped the competition. With Sabrent’s latest offerings boasting R/W speeds of up to 7GB/s and XMG coming in at 7,400MB/s (sequential), Samsung’s 980 PRO is looking kind of pale with top read/write speeds of just 6,500MB per sec/5,000MB per sec.
