ADATA XPG Spectrix S20G M.2 2280 Gen 3x4 SSD Review

ADATA is one of the leading names when it comes to high-performance memory and storage. Actually, they’re even a strong competitor when it comes to laptops, PC cases and peripherals these days too! However, I’ll be focusing on their storage division for now. I have their new XPG Spectrix S20G M.2 2280 Gen 3×4 SSD in for review. It’s packed full of features, and promises RGB thrills, fast read and write speeds, so it’s sure to appeal to those planning a new Gaming PC or even a nice upgrade to their existing system.

The drive features a PCIe Gen3x4 interface, with support for both SLC Caching and Host Memory Buffer. That means it should deliver random read/write speeds of 160K/190K IOPS. You can benefit from LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors, as well as AES 256 encryption; it’ll ensure data security and integrity. With read speeds of 2500MB/s and write speeds of 1800MB/s, it’s as fast as we can hope for from a Gen 3 drive, so it shouldn’t feel like it’s holding us up, even when loading larger files and games.
