- Adrian Ungureanu

ADATA Technology announced the launching of a new Solide State Drive (SSD) dedicated to gamers, the XPG SX950U, which utilizes the latest 3D NAND Flash memory and is driven by a high-speed SMI controller.

The SX950U Gaming SSD applies the latest generation of 3D NAND Flash, providing higher reliability and performance in comparison to previous 2D NAND SSDs. With large capacities of up to 960GB, gamers can store more games and data on the SX950U.

The SSD employs an SMI controller, along with intelligent SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer, and is rated at maximum transfer speeds of 560MB/s for reads and 520MB/s for writes. Thanks to the features of the SX950U, gamers will be able to launch and load games faster than ever.

To prevent errors from occurring during data transfer, the SX950U supports LDPC ECC (Low Density Parity Check Code) to enable algorithms to operate in real-time, precisely decode, and improve the quality of data transmission.

In addition, the SX950U has built-in RAID Engine and Data Shaping technology for data safety and provides superior stability with a long lifespan. The SX950U offers the added benefit of an extended 5-year warranty as befits its premium quality.

The company didn’t mentioned anything about availability yet, and about the prices, in their press release, they said it’ll come at an “affordable price”.
