GIGABYTE announces its AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD with massive heatsink, speed up to 7GB/s

Written by

Today, GIGABYTE announces their latest flagship SSD the AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD. What is thus is it has a massive heatsink and a top speed of 7GB/s. This SSD promises a throttling-free experience for a long period of time using its heatsinks that passively optimized the thermal dissipation out of the SSD. Breaking the 7GB barrier, this SSD makes a top choice for gamers or content creators that are looking for extreme performance.

The AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD is one of the SSD for the latest PCIe 4.0 technology which unlocks the highest transfer rate in most storage devices. It is powered with the Phison E18 selected 8-channel controller for ultimate random access rate and a high speed 3D-TLC NAND Flash and SLC cache design.

The advanced thermal design of this SSD is powered with their massive heatsink called M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME that has Nanocarbon coating, highly conductive pad design, optimization on the height and dissipation and its dual heat-pipes. With these changes, they promise a consistent cooling and high performance even at situation with a minimum airflow. During their real test, the SSD maintained its extreme read of 7GB/s for a long period of operation.

Director of GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Design Division, Jackson Hsu said “High-speed SSDs generate heat on full speed operation, and normally thermal throttling is implemented as a safety feature to prevent data loss, or wear-out the memory chips and controllers. The throttling state engages to maintain the stability and durability, however it slows down the performance and it reduces the transfer rate.”

He also added “AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD uses ultra-durable design and high quality materials for high-speed performance. Moreover, it optimizes the premium thermal standards set by our previous 7000s SSD products to provide users with an outstanding performance. Even without air flow, the thermal solution is capable of preventing the thermal throttling that might occur at high-speed operation of SSD, thus boost the system performance.”

The AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD is now out in the market and it is compatible for all motherboards with 2280 NVMe M.2 interface design. To know more about this product, you can check its official page at
