more like XPG GIMMICK lol
el oh el
so specs are more like 2700 read 1500 write. Not bad. But not quite what the description implies. I'll stick to Samsung and Intel optane for now. More boring looking but better performance.
"these XPG GAMMIX S11 PCIe M.2 SSD drives have been optimized for the most intense gaming, rendering, overclocking, and demanding applications. The PCIe Gen3x4 interface allows for read/write speeds of 3,200 MB/s and 1,700 MB/s," Wow, really Massdrop? Do you even check the stuff you're putting online and it's description before just copying and pasting (or whatever) the commercial words? Seems this is aimed towards the unknowledgable and not enthusiats.

What are you talking about? Those are the correct speeds for the 480 drive....
That's why you read the description first, folks: "The PCIe Gen3x4 interface allows for read/write speeds of 3,200 MB/s and 1,700 MB/s [...]". Much like I am allowed to be the Supreme Leader of the Universe, but well, I'm not.
Turns out that AnandTech recently did a review of the unit, assuming it's the same thing: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13112/the-adata-sx8200-gammix-s11-nvme-ssd-review
are those read/write speeds actually legit???

thanks i actually didnt know that
Oh and as DimaG notes....those speeds are for a PCIe M.2 slot; not all boards support PCIe SSDs. Check your manuals! many msata slots support M.2 at sata6 speed only. Which would mean you get 6gbps read and write....
this would look good next to my Gilette Fusion 3 razor.
Not a deal, pass by.
Will MD ever have a decent SSD drop?

Specifically, I'm interested in the 250GB version, and this drop is a better value than the current price of the Mushkin Pilot, and this SSD has better performance.

Then don't buy a Pilot? MyDigital SBX 128GB NVME for $34.99, 256GB for $52.99 on Amazon.
Literally just bought a 240gb one from Newegg for $66. Same exact thing. And, it doesn’t take years to ship...

i can’t post a link for some reason from my phone but its listed as the XPG SX8200. I didn’t compare the specs that much, but it has the read and write times. It’s not on sale anymore, though. The Gammix thing sounds like a marketing gimic, but once again, I didn’t compare specs and didn’t look into that much.
You can't trust "userbenchmark" when you're looking at bechmarks for PCIe M.2 drives because kids buy these things and don't even realize their board only supports legacy SATA M.2. Resulting in significantly reduced read and write speeds. This is the same drive as the XPG SX8200 but with a fancy looking heatsink.
Oh boy the opening catch line of the description. Do people really buy into that stuff. Like honestly, do you really think there is special code in there to specifically boost your games and rendering. I mean of course its within their duty to create the fastest drive they can and optimize it for different workloads. However, i highly doubt this drive is going to recognize that the data it’s chewing is part of a render process or a video game and suddenly work harder for you. Or else why not make it always work as hard as possible. Maybe I’m interpreting it wrong, and they just mean to advertise that because their drive is fast you will be able to do things like render faster and load games smoother compared to SATA or HDD. However to me it just sounds like it’s promising more than is logical. But... the real zinger is that it’s going to help you overclock. Someone pleas explain to me how this drive will ever have any impact on how you overclock your CPU or GPU. Please. Lets be honest, thos company realistically should just say “Hey buy our NVMe drive because you know you’d rather have this awesome shroud we designed for it than one of those boring Samsung 970 egos that might perform better accross the board, but who pays attention to the fractions of a second faster it might boot your web browser. Wouldn’t you rather this than a basic green circuit board with a sticker?
PS please don’t interpret this as me whining or actually being upset about the fact that companys think we are all stupid. its just I found that description so absurd I laughed and need to sanity check that everyone is laughing too. I mean the evo 970 is clearly the best drive you can buy... they don’t even embellish like this either.

NAND wants to be hot like you said.... I have heard of cases where 70C is still optimal. It is the controller that wants to be cold and the controller that will do the throttling. M.2 Drives will a cool tech are nightmares due to the want of these different temps on the same extremely small chip!

Exactly right, and Tom's Hardware specifically notes that the "heatsink" makes poor contact with the controller, not only failing to improve cooling but obstructing airflow directly to the controller. As a heatsink, it's literally worse than nothing.
