Also, it supports up to 8 NAND Flash channels with 32CEs, DDR4 caching and complies with the NVMe 2.0 standard. AORUS Gen5 12000 SSD offers approximately 60% faster in read throughput and up to 38% higher write throughput than PCIe Gen4.0 x4.
NAND Flash Selected for High Quality and Performance
Leveraging the superior throughput and high-quality combination that 3D TLC NAND provides, AORUS Gen5 12000 SSD brings a better experience in work.
M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME with Nanocarbon Coating
AORUS Gen5 12000 SSD offer with an optional M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME which is made up of two heatpipes and stacked fins with advanced thermal technology Nanocarbon coating for maximum heat dissipation efficiency. Applied with dual side high conductivity thermal pad ensures the heat transfers to the stacked fins. The M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME is the best solution in passive airflow conditions when your personal computer adopts a CPU AIO water cooler.
Why is keeping an SSDs at lower temperatures so important?
Higher working temperature may cause data loss. The degradation factor of data loss could be a hundred times higher. Compared with regular plated heat spreader, the M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME improves thermal dissipation to keep the highest Seq. read performance. With M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME, the SSD can operate at lower working temperatures to improve data storage reliability. Enjoy smoother & upgraded storage performance any time by utilizing M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME.
