SPECIFICATIONS

DRAM Cache 512MB DDR3 // Rated Se­quen­tial Read Up to 2,600 MB/s // Rated Se­quen­tial Write Up to 1,300 MB/s // Sup­ported OS Win­dows, Mac OS, Linux // MTBF (hours) 2,000,000 // War­ranty 3-years // URL www. zotac.com/my The ZOTAC SONIX PCIe SSD was first demon­strated at CES ear­lier this year. It marks the ar­rival of a new breed of high­per­for­mance PCIe SSDs based on the Phi­son PS5007-E7 con­troller. The ver­sion that we tested is rated for se­quen­tial read per­for­mance of up to 2,600MB/s and se­quen­tial write per­for­mance of up to 1,300 MB/s. In con­trast, your av­er­age SATA3-based SSDs these days of­fer about 500MB/s read and 450MB/s write.

Our re­view unit of­fers 480GB of stor­age ca­pac­ity, and is equipped with 512MB of DDR3 DRAM cache, while ar­riv­ing in a half-length halfheight PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 card form fac­tor. Ac­cord­ing to ZOTAC, the drive con­sumes 5.57W when per­form­ing read op­er­a­tions, 7.27W while writ­ing, and 0.5W in idle mode, which is on the lower end

The high­est speed achieved in our test. CON­CLU­SION
