T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA is the first high performance M.2 PCIe SSD product in the market that is specifically designed for gaming and high performance computer. Using Teamgroup's cooling module with patent gaming fin type design, it allows natural convection or forced air cooling (e.g. fan) to enhance radiating. Therefore, when gaming/high performance computer operating at full speed, users don’t have to worry about the heat generated will affect the system performance anymore.
T-Force M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA has passed our long and rigorous internal laboratory tests and burn-in test. The computer using TEAMGROUP’s cooling module with patent gaming fin type design can be cooled down about 30˚C in an open space, and 10˚C in a closed space. The exceptional radiating performance offers T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA a more stable performance and prolongs the service life effectively.
The TEAMGROUP T-FORCE series for gaming now release the first gaming M.2 PCIe SSD - CARDEA, the Goddess of Storm. CARDEA supports the new generation PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and the latest NVMe specification. Besides its powerful superior read/write speed, with its outstanding performance of sequential read/write speed up to 2,600/1,450 MB/s*, and random read/write speed up to 180K/140K IOPS*, it is still able to reduce operating delays of the operating system and game/software, and delivers the finest and smoothest gaming experience and an extremely high speed performance without any lag even reading/writing large amounts of game data, complex 3D graphics and motion processing algorithms with fancy special effects, or loading heavy duty video/graphics editing software.
When the transfer speed is higher than 1000MB/s, the controller of PCIe SSD will endure 65˚C of temperature while the center of the heat of PCIe is located at the controller. T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA is using superconductivity – thermally conductive adhesive, which has a higher cooling coefficient than ice. The heat at the control center can be averagely transferred to the cooling module through superconductivity – thermally conductive adhesive to speed up the radiating process.
The thermal conductivity of general heat spreaders’ adhesive in the market is K=0.6~0.8. To pursue perfection, and regardless of the cost, T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA has brought in a high coefficient thermally conductive adhesive which researched and produced by Canada. It can enhance cooling module’s performance and make K value above 2; therefore SSD’s radiating performance can be pushed to the extreme with instantaneous heat transfer.
K value is used to represent thermal conductivity. The greater K valueis, the more heat transfers. For example, the K value of water is 0.6, and the K value of ice is 2.
T-FROCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA supports the latest NVMe specification. The system communicates with it through PCIe bus and connects to the built-in PCIe controller of the chipset or processor, so the signal transfer is as simple and precise as point to point. M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA offers you a pleasant high performance transfer experience, without a bit of lag or delay.
The transfer speed of traditional solid state drive is limited within SATA’s 6Gb/s bandwidth, therefore consumers have gradually shifted to PCIe interface, which is capable of offering higher transfer speed. Due to this fact, T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA is using PCIe Gen3 x 4 high speed transfer interface. With the support of PCIe bus bandwidth, it can offer consumers a stable transfer speed of at least 1000MB/s, or up to over 2000MB/s. The transfer speed is 4 times higher than SATA 6GB/s interface and allows consumers to enjoy the high speed multimedia entertainment experience.
T-FORCE M.2 PCIe SSD – CARDEA supports S.M.A.R.T function and its built-in smart algorithm management mechanism has functions such as GC (garbage collection) and TRIM command which are able to ensure operation efficiency, prolong the service life of the SSD and bring it to its maximum performance. Meanwhile, the powerful Wear-Leveling technology and ECC (Error Correction Code) function improve the accuracy and reliability of data transfer.
*The speed was tested by TEAMGROUP and for the reference only.
T-FORCE is TEAM force. The red “T” on the logo of “TF” represents TEAMGROUP’s passion for the storage products. The black “F” represents TEAMGROUP’s over 18 years of promotion of storage products. The visual design of the perfect combination elegantly symbolizes a pair of flying wings. They represent that the high quality and extreme performance gaming products from TEAMGROUP are capable of allowing all gamers to break the speed limit and enjoy the ever-changing world of gaming.
