Just a week ago, we brought you news of XPG's latest mainstream SSD: the PCIe 4.0 based GAMMIX S50 Lite, which provides slightly better performance that typical PCIe 3.0 SSDs on the market. Today, however, XPG is targeting the other end of the spectrum with the high-performance GAMMIX S70 PCIe 4.0 SSD that will be duking it out with the likes of the Samsung 980 Pro and Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus. If you thought that the Rocket 4 Plus was fast, you ain't seen nothin' yet. XPG says that the GAMMIX S70 is good for maximum sequential reads of 7,400MB/sec, while sequential writes are rated for 6,400MB/sec. To put that in perspective, this is how its peers compare:         ... Read more...
With the launch of the AMD Ryzen 3000 processors and X570 chipset in July 2019, the PCIe 4.0 SSD era kicked off with a bang. We saw a number of PCIe 4.0 SSDs enter the market, all of which were using a Phison PS5016-E16 controller, including XPG with its GAMMIX S50. Now, XPG is looking to flesh out the GAMMIX S50 family at the lower end of the pricing spectrum. Enter the GAMMIX S50 Lite, which still leverages the PCIe 4.0 interface, but uses the SMI SM2267 PCIe 4.0 controller instead of the Phison E16. As a result, the GAMMIX S50 is still able to offer respectable speeds, but its pricing will be more geared towards mainstream PC shoppers. Where the standard GAMMIX S50 offers sequential read/write... Read more...
We all know that bigger is better, right? At least in generalities, it's often true. More CPU cores help performance in multi-threaded workloads, while high frequencies boost performance in lightly-threaded tasks. With graphics, it's all about more as well; more shading resources, more ROPs, more VRAM, and a wider bus means more frames per second. About the only way more doesn't help is when it's the wrong kind of more, as in latency. If a monitor has a long response time, it can hurt your game play. Similarly, if system memory has higher latency on data requests from the CPU, to help it complete its task at hand, the process stalls when every nanosecond counts. It was in this vein that ADATA's... Read more...
