Gigabyte have announced the release of their new Aorus Xtreme Gen 4 AIC SSD.
Featuring 28 GB/s ultra-fast access speed, Gigabyte stated:
This high capacity and extreme performance SSD builds in eight 4TB 2nd generation PCIe® 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs with a PHISON PS5018-E18 controller. The AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD offers ultra-high transfer bandwidth and superior access performance through RAID configuration. It features ultimate thermal design with a large aluminum finned heatsink, M.2 baseplate for passive cooling, 10 temperature sensors and active dual-fan heat dissipation design, while the exclusive SSD Tool Box offers users real-time status and temperature monitoring of SSDs. GIGABYTE AORUS Storage Manager allows users to configure a RAID array with a single click and 3-phase fan speed adjustment, which enables the AORUS XTREME Gen4 AIC SSD to keep cool and perform at a high level. It promises a non-throttling experience for users who want high capacity and breakthrough performance.
The Aorus Xtreme Gen 4 AIC SSD is certainly no slouch. The official spec sheet indicates that it features a high-quality, hairline brushed baseplate with a curved edge design. Integrates 8 sets of 4TB Aorus Gen 4 7000s level SSDs with PHISON PS5018-E18 controllers in a RAID configuration. This means that not only does it provide a large capacity of up to 32 TB, but it also increases the sequential read speed to 28 GB/s, which surpasses the individual AORUS Gen4 7000s SSDs up to 4 times. This allows it to become the highest performing storage device among all consumer SSDs on the market right now according to Gigabyte.
While pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, we’re expecting this to cost a fortune so PC users, best prepare your wallets. This beastly piece of technology is not going to come cheap given its specs. For those of you out there that would prefer to buy AIC SSD Adaptor alone, without the SSDs, Gigabyte does sell this separately.
