Gigabyte has launched the newest NVMe SSD. And it can reach up to 512GB. Read this post and you will find some specifications of Gigabyte 512GB SSD.

Gigabyte Launches the 512GB NVMe SSD

Recently, the competition of solid state drive market has become more and more serious. And most memory manufactures launches the some newest solid state drive so as to occupy the position in the market. Thus, it is not strange that the Gigabyte Corporation will do the same. Therefore, the newest Gigabyte 512GB SSD has been launched.

Gigabyte has launched two series of SSD in the past. They respectively are UD Pro and Gigabyte SSD. However, the previous two solid state drives focus on SATA market. And now, Gigabyte launches a better performance SSD, which is called Gigabyte M.2 PCIe SSD. Compared the above two SSDs, Gigabyte is pretty conservative since its name are pretty simple and the read and write performance of Gigabyte 512GB SSD are not the best.

Now, we will talk about the read and write performance of Gigabyte SSD.

The Gigabyte M.2 PCIe SSD takes advantage of Phison PS5008-E8 master control and adopts PCI-E 3.0 x2 channel. And from the master control perspective, the Gigabyte 512GB SSD may adopt Toshiba 64-layer TLF flash memory, which is the main configuration of this year.

And Gigabyte SSD has been launched in three different capacities. They respectively are 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. And the 128GB and 256GB are available in current days. The 512GB SSD will be shipped soon. The Gigabyte SSD is converted by a three – year or 100TB written warranty and boasts a 1.5 million hour Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) rating. The Gigabyte SSD can be good for those three years unless you write a large number of data every day.

And the sequential read speed of 128GB Gigabyte SSD can reach up to 1100MB/s and its sequential write speed can reach up to 500MB/s. The 128GB Gigabyte SSD offers 90,000 random IOPS and 100,000 random write IOPS. As to the 256GB model, its sequential read speed can reach up to 1200MB/s and sequential write speed can reach up to 800MB/s. And its random read and write IOPS are 80,000 and 150,000. And the Form Factor of Gigabyte SSDs is M.2 2280. In addition, it is small in size. Its dimension is 80x22x2.3mm.

The Gigabyte M.2 PCIe SSD clearly demonstrates the company’s growing interest in the M.2 storage market. And the Gigabyte M.2 PCIe SSDs provide all the usual benefits. It improves performance in a smaller package that doesn’t require separate power and transmission cables. And in order to occupy the position in the solid state drive market, Gigabyte said that the SSDs must be tested under serious environments such as high temperature and high pressure to ensure their quality and durability.

Therefore, through above information, we can know that even though the Gigabyte SSD is not the best in read and write performance, it has better durability, which also is an essential element of solid state drive. And if you want to clone a hard drive to the new Gigabyte SSD, MiniTool ShadowMaker can be a good assistant. It is a professional backup tool and can be used to create a system image so as to restore to previous Windows state when some accidents happen.


All in all, from this post, we can get the information that Gigabyte has launched a new kind of SSD, which is called Gigabyte M.2 PCIe SSD. And it has three different capacities which respectively are 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. And in this post, you also can see the read and write performance of Gigabyte SSD.
