ADATA Launches XPG SX8200 Pro SSD, GAMMIX S5 SSD, and GAMMIX D30 DDR4 Memory

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today announces a new line up of gaming hardware including the XPG SX8200 ProM.2 2280 SSD, GAMMIX S5 PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 SSD, and GAMMIX D30 DDR4 memory module.

The SX8200 Pro M.2 2280 SSD is XPG's fastest SSD to date and is designed for avid PC enthusiasts, gamers, and overclockers. It features an ultra-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface that offers sustained peak read/write speeds of 3500/3000MB/s, outpacing SATA 6Gb/s by a wide margin. Supporting NVMe 1.3, the SX8200 Pro delivers excellent random read/write performance of 390K/380K IOPS. With SLC caching, DRAM cache buffer, E2E Data Protection, and LDPC ECC, it maintains high speeds and data integrity, even during highly intensive applications such as gaming, rendering, and overclocking.
XPG GAMMIX S5 - Stay Cool in the Heat of Battle
Users can boot, load, and transfer faster with the XPG GAMMIX S5 PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 SSD. With support for NVMe 1.3 and equipped with 3D NAND Flash, it offers up to 4 times faster performance than SATA SSDs. What's more, the GAMMIX S5 sports excellent heat dissipation capabilities with a built-in heatsink. The slender, black heatsink with a hairline-brushed finish makes the GAMMIX S5 look and stay cool. Compared to M.2 SSDs without a heatsink, the GAMMIX S5 is up to 10°C cooler, offering enhanced system stability. Featuring HMB (Host Memory Buffer) and SLC caching, the GAMMIX S5 accelerates read/write speeds up to 2100/1500MB/s. The GAMMIX S5 comes in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities.

XPG GAMMIX D30 - Soar to Victory
The GAMMIX D30 DDR4 memory module features an edgy wing-shaped design that exudes a sense of power and stealth. It's encased in a gray, glossy heatsink that contrasts beautifully with a translucent red or black top cover. GAMMIX D30 delivers excellent performance with speeds up to 4600MHz and supports Intel X299 2666MHz and AMD AM4 / Ryzen platforms. Sporting Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 2.0, overclocking is more straightforward. Instead of adjusting individual parameters in BIOS, users can do it right through the operating system. The GAMMIX D30 is built with high-quality chips selected through a strict filtering process. It also uses top-quality PCBs (Printed Circuit Board) that effectively extend the lifespan of the memory module.

The SX8200 Pro and GAMMIX S5 will be available this month, while the GAMMIX D30 will be available in November.

Interesting. The SX8200 is a legit samsung 970 evo competitor.

However, if these have the typical ADATA reliability, I'll stick with samsung.

They use USA made Micron 2nd generation NAND. (pretty good honestly.. )

And yet their reviews paint a bleak picture of unreliability and slow speeds compared to standard crucial drives, samsung drives, or sandisk drives.

Nobody ever said the NAND itself was the problem. ADATA drives on the whole seem to be less reliable then drives direct from the NAND companies themselves, as well as less reliable then other 3rd party drives from the likes of corsair or mushkin.

I bought a SX8200 recently for a Z370 build. Performance is pretty amazing. Let's hope it doesn't die anytime soon.

Go look at their drives on newegg or amazon, they have a much larger number of 1 and 2 star reviews for unreliability then other brands.

Obviously, in these drives will be used another controller - SM2262EN.
Such a conclusion can be made if you look at the write speed. Or transferred to 96L memory. Or both variants.

It seems to me that everything is fine with the reviews. If we are talking about NVME solution, of course

Try Samsung 970 PRO, EVO is left in the dust.
