The SATA-based SSD market has now become quite stagnant and saturated. Prices have tumbled in recent years which has been great for mainstream users who can benefit from a slice of solid state action. However, with the arrival of AMD and Intel platforms supplying generous allocation for NVMe technology and M.2 pricing having also dropped significantly, never has there been a better time to breach that 550MB/s threshold and benefit from a faster storage drive.
In the spotlight today is Lexar’s new NM700; an M.2 SSD using NVMe technology and PCI Express Gen3 x4. Lexar claims the NM700 will reach speeds in excess of 3000MB/s. Let’s find out if these claims hold true!
