Addlink is a fairly young Taiwanese hardware manufacturer founded in 2014. They specialize in all products related to flash storage, like USB sticks, SD memory cards, and SSDs.
Today, we have for review the Addlink X70 RGB SSD, which comes in the M.2 form factor, using a fast PCI-Express x4 3.0 NVMe connection to interface with the rest of the system.
Under the hood, the X70 SSD is built around a Phison E12 controller paired with Toshiba 64-layer 3D TLC flash. In order to ensure best performance, the Addlink X70 has DRAM cache and SLC caching.
A highlight of the SSD is that it includes ten RGB LEDs on the PCB, which enables adjustable RGB lighting.
