"ADATA's XPG SX8000 is a great choice for the budget-conscious gamer looking to put an NVMe SSD in their notebook or desktop computer. This compact, M.2 form factor SSD is powered by Silicon Motion's SM2260 controller and is available with up to 1TB of 3D MLC NAND flash. The SX8000 is also equipped with an NVMe 1.2 certified, PCIe Gen3 x4 interface capable of delivering nearly four times the performance of your average SATA 6Gb/s SSD. In our sequential read and write tests, the 256GB version of the drive was able to read at speeds as high as 2,096 MB/s and write at speeds in excess of 1,105 MB/s. The SX8000 also did quite well in our random write tests, producing more than 173,000 IOPS at low queue depths.”
