Transcend high-end NVME PCI Express Gen4x4 3D NAND M.2 2280 SSD - up to 3,800 MB/s
PCIe SSD 240S
Transcend's PCIe SSD 240S aims at high-end applications, such as digital audio/video production, gaming, and enterprise use, which require constant processing of heavy workloads with no system lags or slowdowns of any kind. Utilizing the PCI Express® Gen4 x4 interface supported by the latest NVMe™ standard, 3D NAND flash memory, a 4-channel controller, and a DRAM cache, the PCIe SSD 240S offers superior transfer speeds that easily beat the competition.
Supreme transfer speeds
Transcend's PCIe SSD 240S follows the NVMe 1.4 standard and utilizes the PCIe™ Gen4 x4 interface, meaning four lanes are used for transmitting and receiving data simultaneously. Its 4-channel controller supports ultra-high data throughput, resulting in the compelling performance of up to 3,800MB/s read and 3,200MB/s write.
Note: Performance is based on CrystalDiskMark v6.0.2.
Understanding the NVMe PCIe interface
NVMe (or NVM Express®) is a host controller interface standard designed to address the needs of enterprise and client applications that utilize PCI Express-based solid-state storage. The NVMe PCIe interface consists of one or more lanes connected serially, which can best support data transmission between a host computer and an SSD.
Next-generation storage: PCIe 4.0 SSD
PCIe SSD 240S features the new PCIe 4.0 specification. It supports a bandwidth of 16 GT/s per lane as opposed to 8 GT/s per lane for PCIe 3.0. Downwards compatible with PCIe 3.0, PCIe 4.0 unleashes a higher processing speed for your computer and guarantees lower system latency.
Stay cool with graphene heatsink
PCIe SSD 240S is integrated with an ultra-thin graphene heatsink to effectively improve the heat dissipation of the compact-sized SSD. The high conductivity of graphene quickly cools the system down, ensuring stable device performance.
3D expansion to break through limits
Unlike planar NAND memory, 3D NAND flash features memory cells stacked vertically in multiple layers. 3D NAND overcomes the density limitations of 2D planar NAND and delivers a higher level of performance and endurance.+
Better endurance, higher reliability
Transcend's PCIe SSD 240S is engineered with LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check) coding, a powerful ECC algorithm, to keep data secure. Engineered with a dynamic thermal throttling mechanism, the temperature is precisely monitored and controlled for the PCIe SSD 240S, delivering superior endurance and stability for high-end applications.
