Mate, What’s the Deal with SSDs These Days?
Before we dive into the nitty-gritty, let’s chat about SSDs. These little beauties are all the rage worldwide, and they’ve got prices shooting up like fireworks on New Year’s Eve. But worry not, because the Kingsman Gaming KE680 4TB Gen4 SSD is here to save the day.
The Down Under Tech Review
We’ve had the pleasure of getting our hands on this dinky-di SSD from Kingsman Gaming, and let us tell you, it’s a real cracker. Made right here in Taiwan, this SSD is all about giving you bang for your buck.
Fasten Your Seatbelts, It’s Speed Time
This SSD is like a turbocharged ute on the tech highway. With a MAXIO MAP1602 controller and speedy 232 Layers 3D TLC NAND chips that run at a blistering 2400MT/s, you’re looking at 7,400MB/s read and 6,600MB/s write speeds. Mate, that’s faster than a Formula 1 car on a straight stretch!
DRAMless, But Not Clueless
Now, you might be thinking, “What’s the deal with DRAMless design?” Well, this SSD might not have a DRAM cache, but it’s got NVMe 2.0 and Host Memory Buffers (HMB) tech that’ll make your gaming experience smoother than a cold beer on a hot day. With 4K random read/write speeds hitting over 800,000 IOPS, you won’t even have time to blink.
Made in Taiwan, Mate!
Kingsman Gaming KE680 4TB Gen4 SSD is a real Aussie at heart. It’s made in Taiwan, and it’s got that Made in Taiwan charm. You can even see the SSD through a transparent window on the box – it’s like peering into the future of gaming!
Faster Than a Roo on Steroids
This SSD fits into an M.2 2280 form factor and runs on a PCI Express 4.0 x4 interface. It’s got 4TB of storage capacity, which means you can store more games than you can count kangaroos in the Outback.
Meet the MAXIO MAP1602A Gen 4 Controller
The MAXIO MAP1602A Gen 4 controller is a real ripper. It’s the first controller that supports NVMe 2.0, and it’s got speeds that’ll make your head spin. Plus, it’s so efficient it sips power like it’s having a cuppa.
Yankee Doodle NAND
Now, here’s the real kicker – it’s got NAND chips from Yangtze Memory Technologies Co., Ltd. (YMTC). These are the real deal, 4th-gen 3D TLC NAND chips that run at 2,400MT/s. That’s a 50% boost in IOPS performance compared to the previous generation, and it’s 25% more power-efficient.
DRAM Cache – Not Just for Show
You might be wondering about that DRAM cache. Well, it’s not just for show. It’s like having a secret stash of Tim Tams. It helps with IOPS performance, garbage collection, and wear leveling. Without it, things can get slower than a snail on a go-slow day.
HMB – The Secret Sauce
But wait, there’s more! NVMe 2.0 brought along Host Memory Buffer (HMB) tech. In Windows 10/11, it borrows a bit of your system memory to make things even snappier. It’s like adding an extra turbo boost to your rig.
Performance that’ll Make You Say “Crikey!”
