The Beefy Gigabyte Aorus 7000s PCIe 4.0 NVMe Drive 2

The Usual Suspects, A Phison E18 And 96-Layer 3D Micron TLC

Check out the heatsink on the Gigabyte Aorus 7000s, perfect for an M.2 slot which didn’t come with a heatspreader or you could pop it off if your motherboard came with a heatspreader you prefer.  Underneath the aluminium heatspreader lies a Phison PS5018-E1 controller paired with 2GB of DDR4 for cache and 2TB of Micron’s 96 layer TLC in 256GB packages. 

According to the package the drive should provide up to 7,000MB/s sequential read, 6,850MB/s writes, however in some benchmarks the drive fell a bit short of  that, for instance in ATTO Kitguru measured 6,820MB/s for reads and 6,440MB/s writes.  The drive is covered by a limited 5 year warranty, or 1400TBW; whichever comes first.

If you need even more cooling, the 7000s ‘Prem.’ version has a larger heatspreader which contains twin heatpipes and adds around 12mm to the length of the drive and 33.3mm to the height.
