Gigabyte launches low-cost M.2 PCIe SSDs

Gigabyte has revealed their first M.2 SSD, hoping to expand their range of storage solutions to encompass higher performance tiers. This time, Gigabyte has opted to forgo fancy naming conventions, naming this drive their M.2 PCIe SSD, which combined TLC NAND technology with a Phison PS5008-E8T controller. 

These M.2 drives will operate at PCIe 3.0 2x speeds, placing these drives in the mid-high-end performance category, exceeding the throughput of SATA SSDs while remaining far from premium tier PCIe 4x SSDs like Samsung's 970 PRO or EVO drives. 

Gigabyte's new SSDs will offer capacity options of 128GB and 256GB, with a larger 512GB drive being planned for a future release. Both the 128GB and 256GB drives will provide users with a three-year warranty, assuming that users do not pass the drive's maximum write limit (TBW), which is 100 TB and 200TB for the 128GB and 256GB models respectively.  

Like most low-capacity NVMe SSDs, Gigabyte's 128GB M.2 SSD offers lower sequential read/write speeds than its larger 256GB counterpart, delivering sequential read speeds of 1100MB/s and 500MB/s. The drive's 256GB model offers faster sequential read/write speeds of 1200MB/s and 800MB/s respectively, surpassing all SATA-based SSDs.

Gigabyte plans to release high-performance Aorus series NVMe SSDs at a later date, offering users similar performance levels to other high-performance NVMe offerings, far surpassing the performance of these affordable offerings. 

These PCIe M.2 NVMe SSDs are expected to release with price tags of $49.99 and $69.99 respectively for 128GB and 256GB capacity options respectively.

Two things against this.
1: It's Gigabyte. Don't trust them seeing as they don't really care about there motherboard BIOS's
2: Not much more to get an x4 drive and the speed increases definitely make it worth it.Quote
