Adata just revealed the world’s fastest SSD


Adata has announced the XPG Gammix S70, a drive which the company claims is now the fastest M.2 SSD out there – and that’s true as far as we are aware.

The Gammix S70 is a PCIe 4.0 SSD, unsurprisingly, and the headline read and write speeds are 7,400 MB/s and 6,400 MB/s respectively. That is, of course, seriously nippy – for example it outdoes Samsung’s (supposedly) imminent 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 M.2 drive which is rated at read speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s.

Cool as a cucumber

Adata notes that the SSD comes with XPG’s CoolArmor aluminum heatsink, the design of which resembles a ‘terraced structure’, and these layers mean that there’s a greater surface area for more effective heat dissipation.

The S70 drive also guns for reliability featuring LDPC error correcting, and benefits from a five-year warranty, plus on the security front you get AES 256-bit encryption.
