ADATA Swordfish 2Tb SSD tech review

ADATA Swordfish 2Tb works on Realtek RTS5763DL controller. This drive has Dynamic-Random Access Memory Host Memory Buffer to keep a map of where data is located on the NVMe. The Swordfish comes equipped with ADATA 3D TLC memory. SSD is offered also in 3 capacities: 250 Gb, 1 Tb and 500 Gb volume sizes.

Performance and benchmarks

Storage use PCIe M.2 3.0 x 4 bus with sequential read speeds 1800 MB/s, and sequential write speeds equals to 1200 MB/s. This model has input/output performance 180000 on reading and 180000 on writing operations per second.

Endurance and warranty

Manufacturer give 5 years warranty limited by 750 Total Bytes Written. As well it has 1.8 million hours mean time between failure.

Swordfish (2Tb) produced by ADATA use PCIe 3.0 that is twice slower than PCIe Gen4. The write speed is 1200 Mbps, that is slower than has most of rivals. The SSD can write 750 TBW, that is not very much in comparison with competitors. Weighing all these factors, ADATA Swordfish 2Tb has more minuses and our editor strongly do not advise to spend money for it.

Video Review



The ADATA Swordfish has Host Memory Buffer. It means that the drive uses the system's RAM for its own needs. Dynamic Random-Access Memory makes drive work faster, but more expensive.

The Swordfish 2Tb due to the high density of memory chips you need to install of extra heat sink. This would lower temperature of the controller and memory. Some motherboards or laptops from the factory has additional cooling below and above the storage to enhance productivity during heavy loads.

The Swordfish 2Tb has write speed 1200 Mbps, read speed 1800 Mb/s. Storage operate on Realtek RTS5763DL controller and M.2 3.0 x 4 high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. The memory type is ADATA 3D TLC.
