GIGABYTE launches the AORUS Gen4 AIC SSD 8TB with speeds of up to 15,000MB/s sequential read and 15,000MB/s sequential write. The AORUS Gen4 AIC SSD 8TB was first presented at Computex 2019 which we had a first look along with the AORUS PCIe NVMe Gen4 M.2 SSDs. The prototype and the final model have a few differences with its aesthetics on the aluminium shroud wherein the AORUS logo is moved to the fan. The AORUS Gen4 AIC SSD 8TB will still be sporting four 2TB AORUS Gen4 NVMe M.2 SSDs like the prototype demonstrated at Computex 2019. The AORUS Gen4 AIC SSD 8TB features a single-slot design and uses pure copper finned heatsinks with dual-sided cooling pads to keep the M.2 SSDs installed inside cool.
The AORUS Gen4 AIC SSD 8TB comes with the GIGABYTE exclusive AORUS Storage Manager for RAID configuration. The AORUS Storage Manager also offers real-time monitoring on both SSD temperatures and fan speed. AORUS Gen4 AIC SSD 8TB has 8 thermal sensors for users to monitor the four M.2 SSDs. Using the AORUS Storage Manager, users can select one of the three different fan modes for silent and effective cooling. GIGABYTE also officially introduces the AORUS Gen4 AIC Adaptor without M.2 SSDs which we published earlier this month.
