Hello! I want to share with you my first impressions of using the ADATA M.2 XPG GAMMIX S5 256 Гб PCIe Gen3x4 3D TLC (AGAMMIXS5-256GT-C) SSD. The reason for buying this drive was a great desire to upgrade your home system. For this, a new processor, RAM and motherboard with support for such drives were purchased.
Of course, I had to deal with the system in which such drives were installed, and I saw what they were capable of. There was a noticeable difference between a conventional solid-state ssd connected via a SATA connector and an M.2 form factor drive. It was this factor that served as the impetus for my further actions.
Adata m.2 XPG GAMMIX S5 is delivered in strict packaging on which the model of the delivered product and short, technical characteristics are registered.
The drive itself is in a plastic blister with a hard fit.
At the first inspection, you are convinced how seriously the manufacturer took the visual component. The entire area of the drive is equipped with a radiator, which not only decorates it, but also performs the function of heat dissipation. As the specifications state, the radiator is made of aluminum, which should lead to the solution of temperature issues. After all, as you know, such drives decently warm. But, as they say, “wait and see.” The overall dimensions of the drive are one of the standard, and have 22 mm width, 80 mm length and 3.7 mm thickness.
The drive in question has enviable speed characteristics. The read speed is 2100 mb / s, and the write speed is 1200 mb / s. Of course, in the market for such drives there are also faster ones, but such speeds are beyond praise for the average user.
Fasteners and seats are standard, like other similar ssd-drives.
Now it’s time to install the drive into its connector in the motherboard. In my case, the aggressive appearance of the drive was perfectly combined with the appearance of the motherboard, thereby emphasizing the appearance of the entire system.
I admit honestly, I’m just thrilled! The operating system was installed in a few minutes. The increase in productivity is visible to the naked eye. Working at the computer was one sheer pleasure! No lags or delays! And if you want similar results and emotions, then SSD Adata M.2 XPG GAMMIX S5 should be yours! Have a good shopping!
