The products are powered by an Aries development controller, 176-layer 3D NAND flash microchips and DDR4 DRAM cache. The PCI Express 4.0 x4 interface is used to exchange data with a computer.

The family comprises three models – with a capacity of 500 GB and 1 and 2 TB. All are equipped with a thin heat sink, which makes them suitable for installation in both desktop computers and laptops.

The drives offer sequential read speeds of up to 7000 MB / s and sequential write speeds of up to 6500 MB / s. IOPS (input / output operations per second) reach 1.4 million for random reads and 1.3 million for random writes.

Products come with a five-year guarantee. The mean time between failures (MTBF value) reaches 1.5 million hours. No pricing information yet.
