GeIL Shuttle Series M.2 NVMe SSD Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of GeIL Shuttle series SSDs. Built in the M.2-2280 form-factor with PCI-Express 3.0 x4 interface, the drives take advantage of the NVMe 1.2 protocol, and are characterized by a prominent aluminium heatsink over the controller, DRAM, and NAND flash chips, which keeps temperatures of these chips below 38°C in a common work environment. The GeIL Shuttle series drives combine a Silicon Machines SM2260 controller with 3D MLC NAND flash (G2 variant) and 3D TLC NAND flash (G1 variant). The drives offer sequential performance of up to 2,000 MB/s reads, with up to 1,000 MB/s writes.

Good thing it has a finger guard so you don't burn yourself touching the hot heatsink...

Time to check your spell checker... I'm fairly certain they're called Silicon Motion...

Irrelevant how it performs, must have just because it looks cool.

Is it as fast as a 960 evo? Irrelevant. Is it cheap? Probably not. Is it awesome? Hell yeah!

Probably going to beat any 960 series ssd in a proper mini-itx case with limited airflow after 10-15 minutes or less, so it's great for content creators with tiny pc's? All we know, it's not the Stig, but it's the Stig's 24/7 ssd of choice!

I would imagine the MLC variant is in real use

the samsung will be faster in benchmarks though, as if by magic(ian)

bandwidth is decent, but what are the capacities? Has somebody other than samsung decided to make a 2TB m.2.
