Decent price for a drive in this form factor and specs.


https://www.rakuten.com/shop/adat...P-512GT-C/


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.

Features:
High speed PCIe Gen3x2 interface: R/W speed up to 1000/800 MB/s
NVMe 1.2 Certified
Intelligent SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer
Includes DIY XPG heatsink
Compact M.2 2280 form factor - ideal for gaming notebooks and high-end desktops

If you need the speed from a 4 lane solution, then the Evo 960 is a great drive - if prices were the same buying the Evo is a no brainer but at a 50% price premium..... Most people will not see a noticeable difference though between this drive and the Evo 960.

Nonsense.

Feel free to link a 4x NVMe at 26¢ per GB or a sata drive that isn't noticeably slower...

For boot times, gaming, and general use this drive at this price can't be beat.

An average joe paying the requisite premium for a 4x PCIe drive would be the definition of wasting money...

Would this be good in a ultrabook? The heatsink makes it seem like this might produce a lot of heat.

I have placed numerous orders from Rakuten and never had an issue. They had a data breach a couple years and had some bad press from that but which company hasn't these days.

If your laptop supports m.2 NVME drives. Most newer models will.

most ssd's don't get very hot but this looks like the heatsink is on the controller chip which could get hot I suppose. I have a samsung 960 evo and it doesn't get hot at all. I would imagine this would be similar but who knows..

One of the amazon reviews for the 128GB of this makes one think twice about using it in a lappy:

Capacity: 128 GB|Color: PCIe 2280|Verified Purchase
Decent performance, faster than SSD by a decent amount but idle operating temperatures when not even in use of 61 degrees C is not ok. It literally heats up the rest of my system even with good airflow, the heatsink design is pretty awful, but i guess that's to be expected when it's cheap. I literally need to turn on all fans to max just to cool it down to 43 C

I'm getting sick of everything being "VR Ready". How could a current gen motherboard not be VR ready?

This is an x2 drive. If the drive you are installing it on is capable of x4 speeds you are wasting money on this.

What is the performance increase of using one of these drives vs an SSD? Vs Sata 3.0?
