Enjoy the lightning speed of the PCIe Gen4 x4

Enjoy the lightning speed of the PCIe Gen4 x4

Supports the latest PCIe Gen4 x4 specification, reaching 7,000/6,900 Mb/s[1], provides outstanding performance 15 times faster than ordinary SATA SSDs, and is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0 ports.

Featuring two patented heat sinks

Featuring two patented heat sinks

The first in the industry to incorporate two patented heat sinks, giving you the benefits of a patented high-strength aluminum heat sink and a patented ultra-thin graphene heat sink at the same time, so you can choose your preferred method for dissipating heat.

Effective cooling—flexible installation

Effective cooling—flexible installation

The patented high-strength aluminum heat sink features a unique thermal diversion design, capable of effectively reducing the temperature by up to 15%[2]. The patented ultra-thin graphene heat sink features graphene material with excellent thermal conduction performance, delivering heat dissipation rates of up to 9%[3]. Two patented heat sinks allow for flexible assembly without interference issues.

Supports the latest NVMe 1.4 standard

Supports the latest NVMe 1.4 standard

Supports the latest NVMe 1.4 standard, optimizes the NVM sets distribution mechanism and Predictable Latency Mode (PLM), effectively reducing latency, while minimizing read/write damage and improving system QoS. Uses the latest Read Recovery Level (RRL) technology to extend the SSD's service life.

T-FORCE

T-FORCE

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.

PRECAUTIONS
[1] This product is compatible with Intel and AMD platforms, and the performance result is tested on a motherboard that supports PCIe 4.0 interface by the T-FORCE internal laboratory. The actual speed may vary depending on the software and hardware conditions of the platform.
[2] With TEAMGROUP’s patented gaming fin type cooling module, both natural convection or forced air cooling (e.g. fan) can enhance heat dissipation. Long and rigorous test and burn-in test by the internal laboratory have proven that it can lower the temperature by up to 30℃ in open space and 10℃ in closed space, which provides more stable performance and extends the service life of the SSD.
[3] The experimental data is based on T-FORCE internal laboratory's test result. Under the same condition, the temperature test data is according to the comparison of the non-heat spreader M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD and the T-FORCE CARDEA A440 Solid State Drive. The relevant test environment is simulated under a fanless environment using mask. The actual speed may vary depending on the software and hardware conditions of the platform.
[4] 1GB=1,000,000,000 Bytes. In OS system, it would be displayed as 1,000,000,000 Bytes/1024/1024/1024 = 0.93GB
[5] Definition and conditions of TBW (Terabytes Written)are based on JEDEC standard
[6] PCIe SSD works best under WIN8.1 and WIN10 operating system. Windows Operating Systems earlier than Windows 8.1 does not support NVMe Driver natively. Users will need to install NVMe Driver prior installing the SSD.
[7] The SSD is based on the TBW or Warranty period.
