HP FX900 Pro 2TB PCIe 4 M.2 SSD Review
Peter Donnell / 11 months ago
There’s no shortage of amazingly fast storage solutions these days. In the last ten years, we’ve seen the steady transition from 3.5″ mechanical HDDs, to faster SATA 2.5″ SSDs, and now, M.2 PCIe Gen 3 and 4 drives are becoming the dominant choice for high-end PCs. While you need a newer motherboard and CPU to take full advantage of the PCIe 4.0 technology, it still presents one of the most attractive upgrades in recent years, with drives offering speeds significantly faster than ever before. With that in mind, HP has just unleashed their new FX900 Pro, a Gen 4 NVMe drive that promises to impress.
HP FX900 Pro
Now, HP may not be a byword for high-end PC gamers, at least, not in the past, but they have been making great efforts in that area. However, this new drive is actually made by the mighty BIWIN, who design and manufacture high-performance memory and storage for the biggest names in the business and typically use the best of the best components, so this drive should really be able to compete with the cool kids when it comes to hardware and performance. It’s available in 512GB, 1TB and 2TB models, but I have the top-end 2TB model at my disposal today.

What BIWIN Had to Say
“Designed for high performance and gaming, FX900 Pro uses 8-channel Gen 4 x 4 controller, supports NVMe 1.4 technology, and takes the sequential read/write speeds up to 7000 MB/s and 6700 MB/s. It breaks through the performance bottleneck of previous PCIe generations to upgrade the computing experience for gamers, professionals, and video makers.” – BIWIN
