XPG GAMMIX SSD S11 Pro Series: 1TB Internal PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 (NVMe) for $124.99 w/ Free Shipping >Now $125.99
  • Use Code: FSETTA
Employing the extra-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface and supporting NVMe 1.3, the GAMMIX S11 Pro delivers blazing fast read/write speeds of up to 3500/3000MB per second. What's more, the S11 Pro is encased in a heatsink that reduces the SSD's temperatures by up to 10°C. Equipped with 3D NAND Flash along with SLC Caching, a DRAM Cache Buffer, End-to-End Data Protection, and LDPC ECC technology, it maintains high speeds and data integrity even during intense gaming, rendering, overclocking, and other high-demand applications.

Breakthrough Performance
● PCIe Gen3x4 interface : read/write up to 3500/3000MB/s
● NVMe 1.3 supported
● Next-generation 3D NAND Flash : Higher capacity, durability, and power efficiency
● M.2 2280 form factor : supports desktops with the latest Intel and AMD platforms
● Built for pros : ideal for gamers, PC enthusiasts, overclockers, and video rendering professionals

Cool-Headed in the Face of Battle
A heatsink with a sports-car-inspired design makes the S11 Pro look and stay cool. Compared to M.2 SSDs without a heatsink, the S11 Pro is up to 10°C cooler, offering enhanced system stability.

Accelerate on to Victory
Featuring SLC Caching and a DRAM cache buffer, the S11 Pro accelerates read/write speeds up to 3500/3000MB/s and delivers random performance of up to 390K/380K IOPS. Whether booting, gaming or transferring large files, the S11 Pro accomplish them quickly and effectively.

3D NAND FLASH – Higher Capacities for More Games
Implementing advanced 3D NAND Flash, S11 Pro features higher storage capacities of up to 1TB, while also providing higher efficiency, rugged reliability and a high TBW (Total Bytes Written).

Data Integrity, Security, and Stability
The GAMMIX S11 Pro supports LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors for more accurate data transfers. Meanwhile, End-to-End Data Protection and RAID Engine support ensure data security and improve transmission stability.

Backed by a 5-Year Warranty
Every component on the GAMMIX S11 Pro has passed meticulous screening, testing, and certification. The GAMMIX S11 ships with the comfort of a 5-year warranty.

I don't know why people always bring up random read, because games DO NOT benefit from higher random read.

If you're talking about the AVERAGE user, they won't see a benefit from anything above Sata speed SSDs.

The SINGLE only roadblock a general consumer might hit, is End to end write.

The SLC cache is dynamic as part of the drive, it is NOT 128GB if you fill up the drive.

This is where the SX82 and ex95/ s11pro fall apart.

If you ever even come close to filling up the drive, it sometimes starts to hitch and stutter.
How many people fill up their drive? Mine is half full. How about yours?

If you're going to get a 970 EVO Plus so you can fill it up, I have a better idea - spend the same money to get a Crucial P1 or Intel 660p that is twice the size for the same price and never go more than half full.

That's ridiculous, why buy a drive that you Can't fill up. or would stutter when near full.

That's what the sx8200/s11pro/ex950 represent.

The fact that YOU don't fill up your drive, does not alter the fact that with these dynamic slc drives you really "Can't"


In the discussion of well what's relevant to someone who's gonna buy 1 drive.

Since we already agree raw performance metrics arn't relevant, well then the fact that you PAID for 1TB and can USE 1 TB that's the line.

Sure, I'll fill up my 1TB because that's a stupid, useless metric. Like that specific test, the last time I put over 144GB (128+16GB) onto my drive in one go was... never, and I know/use SSDs more than the average user

Besides, all SSDs get slower when they are over 75% full, even the 970 Evo Plus. So if you want to pay 20% more for that drive, well they say some people and their money are easily parted.

Ohh and you didn't acknowledge that that picture you linked me was stupid because they were comparing 1TB drives to 256GB drives. You need to compare apples to apples and not to oranges. Let's compare this 1TB drive to a 250GB EVO with a quarter the chips and NAND channels and see how it goes

That's not true, the picture I linked compares the right drive drives in 1tb iterations. the ex920 is fine for comparison, but I've updated the post with the ex950 iteration, it chokes just like the ex920.

https://images.anandtech.com/grap...last16.png

Again, we're paying money for a 1TB drive, if it starts to stutter at nearing full, then it's not a good drive. That's the bottom line.

The Sn750 is $135, and it can write 1.5GB/s end to end, only slightly behind 970 pro/evoplus

600tb for all other top brands. So what do you suggest or want to say here?
It's a info. Means it's not 320tb or 1280tb.

This is a repost from a few days ago. SD bots hard at work to make $$ 😂

I paid 91 in change during the last lightening deal back in Oct 2019. Great drive and a tad faster & larger than my 1tb 970 Evo...

Just a FYI. I have the Asrock x570 Tachi board & had to use a razor blade to remove the heatsink. This was so it would sit flush under the boards heatsink plate...

PS: Games don't load faster than my MX500 1Tb drive & the only time I see the raw speed is file to file transfers between the two NVME drives. So outside of the space saved with power wires & sata cables most folks will never benifit from the raw speed. All of it is hype...

We knew you paid for $91. So what? That's yesterday's price. It's sounds stupid to remove the heatsink. laugh out loudLMAO

It boggles my mind why you think sustained write is "the ONLY metric that will matter to end users" - I think that metric is UTTERLY USELESS to 95% of all users. Probably less than 5% so let's say a very tiny minority of users.

The graphic linked shows them writing whatever GB of data and the graph showing the speed of the last 16GB. It basically makes a SSD's cache irrelevant even though the cache can be as large as 128GB.

The average enthusiast user would be a gamer who, at most, updates or installs a game or two at a time. They're unlikely to come close to using up 128GB cache so if they write under 128GB of data their drive is essentially performing as a SLC drive and thus caches are very useful. Your metric puts a cache at zero value.

They would care more about windows or game load times. Thus random read

Also that picture is extremely flawed because it's comparing 240/256GB drives to 960/1TB drives. Quadruple the memory means quadruple the lanes means quadruple the write speeds. Theoretically. (there's still limits with the interface and controller) Look at the sx8200 pro spec sheet. The same drive has 1200, 2300, and 3000 sequential write speed depending on the size
https://www.anandtech.com/show/13...s-hp-ex950

I rest my case
There are no further questions, your honor.

I assume "Next gen flash" means worse QLC flash.

Hence why this has a SLC cache. QLC is slow slow slow.


QLC is only worth the trade off in 2TB+ sizes where you need it to make the price practical.


For 1TB the Inland Premium were $99.

SSDs have been rising in price - DRAM shortages :/

Agreed QLC can be slow once the cache runs out but I believe this drive is TLC

" The Gammix S11 features proven high-performance components like Silicon Motion's SM2262 PCIe 3.0 x4 eight-channel NVMe controller and Micron's 64-layer 3D TLC NAND flash"
