Falcon (256Gb) produced by ADATA use PCIe Gen3 that is undoubtedly slower than PCIe 4. The write speed is 1500 Mb/s, that is slower than has most of rivals. The drive can write 1200 TBW, that is excellent compared to closest competitors. After evaluating all the facts, ADATA Falcon 256Gb has more minuses and our editor strongly do not recommend to buy it.
- Slow writing speed
- PCIe 3.0
