Mike Sanders / 6 months ago
PNY has today announced the launch of the XLR8 CS3140 M.2 NVMe Gen4 x4 Solid State Drive, the “CS3140”, delivering speeds never seen before. PNY’s quest to continuously deliver cutting-edge technology for the most demanding applications has led to the development of the company’s fastest M.2 NVMe SSD yet. The CS3140 sets new standards that enable 4K and 8K content creators, high-intensive application users, gamers, and others to experience a whole new level of speed, performance, and productivity.
PNY XLR8 CS3140 M.2 NVMe SSD
Optimized for the latest NVMe Gen 4.0 protocol, which continues to gain adoption from motherboard manufacturers and users, the CS3140 delivers outstanding sequential speeds of up to 7,500 MB/s read and up to 6,850 MB/s write speeds, redefining possibilities and paving the road to a whole new world of content creation, gaming, and so much more.
Raw performance is not the only focus with the CS3140. Utilizing a 12-nanometer manufacturing process, it also delivers greater power efficiency, which is critical for both desktop and laptop applications, enabling the drive to deliver greater performance while generating less heat; allowing desktops to run cooler and laptops to have longer battery lives.
The CS3140 is available in two versions: a non-heatsink version for laptops and desktops with space constraints and a version with a 45-gram extruded aluminium heatsink responsible for absorbing and dissipating some of the heat produced by such fast speeds, high-intensive applications, and sustained workloads. Eight individual vertical fins provide a larger heatsink surface area while optimizing airflow and heat dissipation.
The PNY XLR8 CS3140 M.2 NVMe Gen4 x4 Solid State Drive delivers speeds never seen before, provides optimal thermal dissipation, adds impressive storage of up to 2 TBs, and offers great aesthetics so that you can look good as you experience world-leading performance.
