Decent price for a drive in this form factor and specs.
The XPG SX6000 combines superior speed and a better cost-performance ratio in a compact M.2 2280 form factor. It's great for gamers, PC enthusiasts, and video rendering professionals and perfect for anyone feeling the need for speed and thus an upgrade from traditional SATA SSDs. Utilizing a PCIe Gen3x2 interface, the SX6000 reaches read/write speeds of 1000/800MB per second for faster boot, game downloads, and data transfers.
NVMe 1.2 qualified, the SX6000 delivers superior random read/write performance and multi-tasking capabilities. It implements 3D NAND Flash, which provides storage density up to 1TB and improved reliability compared to 2D NAND. With support for SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer, the SX6000 maintains optimized performance and data integrity during even intense gaming, rendering, or other high demand applications.
The SX6000 box has a sleek black XPG heatsink with pre-applied thermal compound inside for easy DIY. With or without heatsink: the choice is yours, as the SX6000 looks great in builds either way.
The Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 operating systems offer native support for the PCIe NVMe interface. For the Windows 7 operating system, a Windows update added this native support at a later time. As a result, the Windows 7 installation does not detect the SSD unless this update is made. Please check with your motherboard manufacturer on compatibility and enabling the SSD in the BIOS.
