ADATA Releases the XPG SX9000 PCIe Gen3x4 NVMe 1.2 SSD

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the XPG SX9000, its fastest consumer SSD yet. The SX9000 caters to gamers and PC overclockers. It arrives in an M.2 2280 form factor and uses the PCIe3x4 interface to deliver up to 2800MB/s read and 1450 MB/s write. ADATA has selected a new Marvell controller to ensure consistently optimized performance, while in-house ADATA manufacturing, assembly, and quality control result in up to a 1000TB terabytes/total bytes written (TBW) rating. The SX9000 uses MLC NAND Flash and ships in 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB capacities.

The SX9000 goes even beyond the XPG SX8000 thanks to balanced ADATA design and the integration of a new Marvell controller. It reaches 2800MB/s read and 1450 MB/s write, leveraging the PCI Express Gen 3x4 interface and the NVMe 1.2 protocol. A compact M.2 2280 drive, the SX9000 also manages 310K/140K IOPS random 4K read/write. For fast boot, reduced cross-drive transfer times, shorter game loads, and quicker in-game asset delivery, the SX9000 offers an excellent foundation.
Long life through careful production
ADATA quality assurance and in-house, outsource-free production lead to a long product lifespan. The SX9000 is rated for a TBW of up to 1000TB, at least 20% more than the longest-lasting 2.5" SATA consumer SSDs currently available. Similarly, it has a 2 million hour MTBF (mean time between failures) rating. On the data integrity side, the SX9000 supports low density parity check error correction and wear leveling, among other fidelity-enhancing features.

Providing gamers and professionals with more options
The high speed and tolerances of the SX9000 make it a great choice for speed-seeking gamers, overclockers, and professionals such as graphics/render artists and compositors. Customers can choose from 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB versions of the SX9000. Additionally, the retail package includes a stylish black heat spreader with the XPG logo that users can opt to DIY install on the SX9000 quickly and easily, as it has thermal compound pre-applied. This way, customers can use the SX9000 with or without a heat shield based on preference and specific system conditions. This is in keeping with the ADATA and XPG dedication to providing more flexibility.

Peace of mind assured
The SX9000 offers the added benefit of an extended 5-year warranty as befits its premium quality.

What? You say we don't need yet another middle-of-the-road gumstick NVMe drive, priced around $200 for the 512GB, which will quickly drop in price like the others? What was that? You hear that the new Sammy is coming out soon, and it will surely obliterate all these latecomer wannabes? Yeah, I agree. But the competition seems to be driving prices down , albeit slowly. I'm glad we had this conversation, catch you later...

The problem isn't competition rather Adata's behaviour of releasing too many SSDs. They need to slow down the release cycles of SSDs.

I don't think that they need to do anything some random guy on the internet tells them.

I do notice this when shopping online for SSDs, Adata has quite a few different models, and not easy to figure out which ones are even worth considering. They release new models so often that reviewers don't have a chance to test them all, or maybe they don't send out drives to many reviewers. Don't let it get you down, lots of Chinese companies are doing the same thing, finally jumping on the SSD bandwagon, trying to sell their cheap, slow, cookie-cutter drives as some great new tech that will revolutionize your PC experience., and they're right, for people on spinning rust. Anyone still running their OS on a HDD is so far behind the curve, they don't know the difference, and the finer points of flash storage are lost on them - you can sell them any piece of crap and they'll still think it's amazing. Enthusiasts can safely ignore them. If a new price/performance champ arises somehow from one of these brands, I'm sure we'll hear about it.
