The all-new, upgraded special aluminum fin type heat sink can effectively reduce the temperature by 48% and delay speed dropping

The all-new, upgraded special aluminum fin type heat sink can effectively reduce the temperature by 48% and delay speed dropping

CARDEA A440 PRO SSD has an all-new, upgraded special aluminum fin type heat sink. Its special conduction design can effectively reduce the temperature by up to 48%[2]. Compared to other SSDs, it is more stable in terms of read and write performance. It delays the occurrence of speed drop caused by high temperature generated during high-speed operations.

The flagship SSD that keeps on pushing the limits

The flagship SSD that keeps on pushing the limits

With the latest PCIe Gen4x4 interface, the CARDEA A440 PRO PCIe4.0 flagship SSD continues to go beyond the limits, delivering amazing sequential read/write speeds of 7,400/7,000 MB/s[1], which is 15 times faster than the performance of typical SATA SSDs. It is also backwards compatible with PCIe 3.0 specification interface.

Patented ultra-thin graphene heat spreader for flexible installation

Patented ultra-thin graphene heat spreader for flexible installation

The patented ultra-thin graphene heat spreader contains graphene’s best thermal conductivity material, and the heat dissipation can be enhanced by up to 9%[3]. The installation is very flexible and there won’t be any problem of interference.

Two different packages of cooling modules for you to choose from

Two different packages of cooling modules for you to choose from

The first in the industry to offer two different packages of cooling modules, allowing you to choose the most suitable heat sink or heat spreader for your device according to your needs.

Support the latest NVMe 1.4 specification

Support the latest NVMe 1.4 specification

By supporting the latest NVMe 1.4 specification and optimizing the work division mechanism of NVM Sets and PLM (Predictable Latency Mode), it can effectively reduce latency time and the write loss and improve the QoS of the system. The use of the latest RRL (Read Recovery Level) technology can also improve the service life of SSD.

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 and 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 48% in open 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 Gen4x4 SSD and the T-FORCE CARDEA A440 PRO 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.
