The XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro has been released by ADATA at the end of last year. With high performance and fast speed, this new M.2 NVMe SSD is a suitable choice for gaming. If you are one of those who care a lot about speed as well as performance, you should pay attention to this new product to see whether it satisfy your needs.
XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro: Remains Cool Blazing Speeds
According to news, ADATA adds a new product to the XPG series – it’s XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro, which is said to be equipped with improved performance figures and up to 1TB capacity. As a new enthusiast-class PCIe 3.0 x 4 drive, the new GAMMIX S11 Pro has been developed on the basis of proven components paired and the latest controller technology.
The new ADATA NVMe SSD is powered by the range-topping controller (SM2262EN) of Silicon Motion, which is said to be a beast (no exaggeration). Why? It is equipped with:
- Eight channels
- Four ARM Cortex-R5 cores
- Plenty of advanced features
- 2 2280 form factor (giving support to the latest Intel and AMD desktops)
High performance can be achieved if you use the controller with 64-layer 3D TLC NAND cooperatively. Besides, an SLC Cache and a DRAM Cache Buffer are also adopted in XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro to boost the performance.
If you are a gamer, PC enthusiast, video rendering professional, or overclocker, you may pay more attention to the following things:
- RAID engine
- LDPC ECC technology
- End-to-end data protection
GAMMIX S11 Pro Overview
Capacity & Speed
As for the capacity, ADATA offers you with 3 choices:
By using advanced 3D NAND Flash, S11 Pro can increase the capacity to be up to 1TB. Meanwhile, the higher efficiency & rugged reliability as well as a high TBW (Total Bytes Written) can be achieved.
The GAMMIX S11 Pro delivers blazing fast read/write speeds, all thanks to the extra-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface and the support of NVMe 1.3.
- The sequential reading speed is rated up to 3500MB/s
- The sequential writing speed is rated up to 3000MB/s
The write speed is actually a great progress for the non-Pro model. Correspondingly, the random performance is improved (not as much as the sequential). The 4K random IOPS of GAMMIX S11 Pro read and write are respectively: up to 390K and up to 380K. Thus, tasks like gaming, booting, or large files transferring are just a piece of cake; XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro can finish them quickly and effectively.
A heat sink has been applied to ADATA GAMMIX S11 Pro SSD to reduce the temperatures by up to 10°C; this helps to achieve enhanced system stability. The heat sink, together with the sports-car-inspired design, is able to let the S11 Pro look and stay cool. In this way, you can get the best performance at all times.
Security and Warranty
As I have mentioned before, the LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology has been applied to XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro. In this way, a wider range of data errors could be detected & fixed and more accurate data transfers can be achieved.
What’s more, the data security can be ensured and the transmission stability can be improved with the help of End-to-end data protection and RAID engine support.
The MTBF of this ADATA M.2 NVMe SSD is rated for 2 million hours and the TBW is rated at 160TB, 320TB, and 640TB respectively (in correspondence to the 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB models).
Every component you can find in this product has gone through meticulous screening, testing, and certification. As for the warranty, ADATA gives it a 5-year quality guarantee.
