Are hard drives dead? 8TB M.2 SSD


The Edge NextGen M.2 2Tb has no DRAM or information about it is unknown. Dynamic Random-Access Memory makes SSD faster, but also more expensive.

The Edge NextGen M.2 2Tb due to the high density of memory chips you need to install of extra heat sink. It reduce temperature of the memory chips and controller. Some motherboards or laptops from the factory has thermal pads below or above the drive to enhance performance during heavy loads.

The Edge NextGen M.2 has write speed 1600 Mb per second, read speed 2705 Mbps. Storage operate on Silicon Motion SM2262 controller and PCIe 3.0 x 4 interface standard. The NAND flash memory type is TLC.
