Acer is a world-leading manufacturer of computer hardware. The company was founded in 1976, in Taiwan. They are mostly famous for their laptops, desktop PCs, and monitors. They have now branched out into the field of solid-state storage with OEM partner BIWIN Storage, who is also helping HP produce their SSDs.
In today's review, we're taking a look at the Acer Predator GM7000 M.2 NVMe SSD. It is powered by an Innogrit IG5236 controller, a model we've recently seen on the ADATA Gammix S70 and S70 Blade. Acer has paired the IG5236 with 96-layer 3D TLC flash from Micron and 2 GB DDR4-2666 DRAM cache from Nanya. PCI-Express 4.0 x4 is used as the host interface; it doubles the theoretical bandwidth over PCI-Express Gen 3.
The Acer Predator GM7000 is available in capacities of 512 GB ($120), 1 TB ($180), and 2 TB ($350). A 4 TB variant is planned. Endurance for these models is set at 300 TBW, 600 TBW, and 1300 TBW respectively. Acer provides a five-year warranty for the Predator GM7000.
