ADATA Unveils XPG GAMMIX S11 PCIe Gen3x4 NVMe 1.3 SSD

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the XPG GAMMIX S11 (S11), its fastest gaming SSD to date. It arrives in a compact M.2 2280 form factor, is equipped with a unique heatsink to maintain optimal temperatures and sports the ultra-fast PCIe3x4 interface to deliver up to 3200MB/s read and 1700MB/s write - which is ideal for performance seekers, including gamers, PC DIY enthusiasts and graphics professionals. S11 employs the latest 2ndgeneration 64-layer 3D NAND Flash for improved reliability and ships in capacities of 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB.

Leveraging the ultra-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface and the NVMe 1.3 protocol, the S11 offers a tremendous improvement in read/write performance. It implements a 32bit DRAM data bus, Intelligent SLC Caching, and a DRAM cache buffer, accelerating sequential and 4K random read/write speeds. It can reach speeds of up to 3200MB/s for reads and 1700MB/s for writes and 310K/280K IOPS random 4K read/writes for faster boot, shorter game loads, and system response time. In addition, XPG's custom-designed heatsink ensures temperatures are at least 10 degrees*(1) Celsius lower than non-shielded M.2 SSDs, providing enhanced stability and longevity.
Rugged durability is your strongest backup
Utilizing 2ndgeneration 64-layer 3D NAND Flash, S11 is more reliable, faster performing, and longer lasting than ever. It also supports RAID Engine and Data Shaping for greater reliability and stability. To ensure data integrity and accuracy, S11 is equipped with advanced LDPC error correction, which helps to fix more errors than BCH ECC during data transfers. With these technologies the S11 provides superior durability and has a 2-million-hour MTBF (mean time between failures) rating.Like all XPG SSDs, the S11 is backed by an extended 5-year warranty.

I'm baffled, what is the difference to SX8200? Looking it's specs looks like a same drive.
This one is for "gaming"...
Or someone at Adata was lazy and did a copy/paste...

A headsink would make more sense for a professional user with massive file transfers all day, not a gamer. When you load a game, it's over after 1 minute, no heat!

Heh only difference on marketing diipadaapa is this line:
Eye - Catching Heatsink for Excellent Cooling
A black XPG heatsink with red streamlined curves makes the GAMMIX S11 look attractive and aggressive. Compared to M.2 SSDs without a heatsink, the S11's temperature is lower by about 10°C for better cooling.
Wow, so what it's 10°C cooler than sx8200 model without heatsink or what(sx8200 comes with user installable heatsink).
