ADATA XPG SX8100: high-performance SSDs for M.2 PCIe

By | September 20, 2019

The manufacturer's offer has three versions of SX8100 media that will work in computers and laptops. The specification looks quite promising.

The ADATA XPG SX8200 and SX8200 PRO carriers are extremely successful constructions. The manufacturer's offer has appeared cheaper models XPG SX8100. What's so special about them?

The XPG SX8100 series includes three capacitive versions: 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB. Theoretically, we are talking about very efficient constructions, because the declared transfers reach 3500 MB / s when reading and 3000 MB / s when writing data (the less capacious version offers a slightly slower write).


The manufacturer used here an 8-channel Realtek RTS5762 controller, 3D TLC NAND memory chips, and the recording supports the DRAM cache and an additional buffer operating on the principle of SLC NAND memory.

XPG SX8100 media will work on computers and laptops with M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 connector. The new series supports LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) and E2E Data Protection technologies.
