Team Group Releases T-FORCE CARDEA II M.2 SSD and PD400 Portable SSD

Today Team Group launches two solid state drives with different features. The internal model, which under Team Group's gaming brand T-FORCE, is CARDEA II M.2 solid state drive. This solid state drive emphasizes on features like PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and cooling module with patent gaming fin type design. The portable solid state drive PD400 uses the latest generation of high speed USB 3.1 Gen1 interface. It is lightweight, easy to carry and also has three major features: pressure resistant, shock proof, water proof. The two internal and external solid state drives offers solutions for the need of performance and appearance. Consumers not only can possess the latest visual design, but also enjoy the great advance in performance of storage devices.

T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD - CARDEA series release the CARDEA II solid state drive with improved performance. The gaming fin type cooling module has patented design (Taiwan Utility Model Patent No. M541645), and has passed rigorous tests and burn-in test. It can be cooled down about 10 degrees in a closed space, and 30 degrees in an open space. The radiating performance can be increased by 15% comparing with traditional cooling module. Module's superconductivity - thermally conductive adhesive can effectively accelerate the heat transfer process, so the speed performance won't be affected by high temperature anymore. CARDEA II uses PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and supports the latest NVMe 1.3 protocol. It has a truly outstanding sequential read/write speed of up to 3400/3000 MB/s, and random read/write speed of up to 180K/160K IOPS.
With size of a palm and the color of ocean blue, the case of PD400 external solid state drive is solution enhanced. Data can be safely protected with three major protective features: pressure resistant, shock proof and water proof. The sophisticated design is low key and yet tasteful. PD400 only weights 60g, which is highly portable. PD400 uses the latest generation of high speed USB 3.1 Gen1 interface, which is four times faster than general external hard drive in transfer performance. The time for data accessing can be greatly reduced and it can be used more freely at different environments. PD400 is both high performance and tasteful. It is the top choice for external solid state drive that combines convenience, taste and performance.

Hummm.... 3400/3000 speeds are getting realy close to WD & Sammy range.....some reviews say it's $149, which is a bit steep atm, with flash prices dropping so fast.....

Although I like the heatsink design in general, whats with that giga-hunka-metal clamp ... seems way overdone IMHO, and the whole thing will not allow installation in a lappy either :confused:

or in a x570 mother board. No way they will fit underneath the air funnels they have.

The size of the heatsink would not work on MBs were the M2 slots are under the GPUs. It also makes me wonder about compatibility with X570 boards.

It works fine under a GPU. It's the same heatsink as the first one and that fit flush with the PCIe slot.

You take off the heatsink.
You then plug the SSD into laptop.
You then glue that heatsink to the back of your laptop (where SSD resides)

Spaced heatsinks.

Hmmm, judging by specs and PCB appearance, this supposed to be "upgraded" MP34 with cheap ass heatsink obtainable from Amazon, besides unspecified controller whom I should assume could be another cheap ass Phison and pathetic 3 years warranty. Hard pass.

My Corsair MP510 has similar speeds but didn't come with a hunk of metal attached. Is one needed?
