ADATA has launched the XPG SX8200, its fastest consumer SSD to date. It arrives in a compact M.2 2280 form factor and uses the ultra-fast PCIe3x4 interface to deliver up to 3200MB/s read and 1700MB/s writes. SX8200 employs the latest 2nd generation 64-layer 3D NAND and ships in capacities of 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB.
The XPG SX8200 implements a 32bit DRAM data bus, intelligent SLC Caching, and a DRAM cache buffer, accelerating sequential and 4K random read/write speeds. It reaches speeds of up to 3200MB/s for reads and 1700MB/s for writes and 310K/280K IOPS random 4K read/writes for faster boot, shorter game loads, and system response time.
Utilizing 2nd generation 64-layer 3D NAND Flash, XPG SX8200 is more reliable, faster performing, and longer lasting than ever. It also supports RAID Engine and Data Shaping for greater reliability and stability. Similarly, it has a 2 million hour MTBF (mean time between failures) rating. The SX8200 supports LDPC (low density parity check) error correcting code and wear leveling, among other nifty features.
The high speeds and tolerances of the XPG SX8200 make it a great choice for speed-seeking gamers, overclockers, and professionals, such as graphics/render artists and compositors. Customers can choose between the 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB versions of the SX8200. Additionally, the retail package includes a stylish black heat spreader with the XPG logo that users can opt to DIY install on the SX8200 quickly and easily. Like all XPG SSDs, the SX8200 is backed by an extended 5-year warranty as befits its premium quality.
