If you’re a PC gamer in todays market, you will find yourself bombarded by items specifically aimed towards yourself, sometimes with very little justification for the “Gamer” branding; typically we find that the association stems only as far as a colour scheme.
Having listened to that, today we’re looking at a new solid state drive from ADATA’s performance division, XPG; this SX950U SSD is available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB capacities and is aimed directly towards gamers.
The SX950U makes use of 3D NAND flash as well as SLC Caching and a DRAM Cache to help improve speeds while LDPC ECC and RAID Engines ensure your data remains stable during prolonged gaming sessions, demanding absolute integrity.
As previously mentioned, the “Gaming” branding is apparent with the black and red colour scheme, a popular style choice amongst many gamers. It’s difficult to imagine how this SSD could noticeably impact your gaming experience when compared to the vast majority of solid state drives on the market, but when compared to an HDD, the gains should be enormous.
