In a world soon to be overrun by PCI-Express Gen 4 NVMe SSDs, we find ourselves looking at a Gen 3 drive. This may seen almost archaic at a glance, but unless you have an AMD X570 motherboard you’re currently limited to Gen 3 speeds. As Gen 4 drives carry a price premium, future-proofing isn’t necessarily a wise choice. Unless, that is, you can make use of the speed right now.

The ADATA XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro 512 GB SSD is something that can be used to its full potential on many platforms. It has a similar specification and claimed speeds to other high end NVMe drives, but can it perform? First, let’s take a look at the specs.

Those are some bold claims on most fronts, butting it toe-to-toe with the likes of even the Samsung 970 Pro. The only place it really falls short on paper is the endurance rating, but it is aimed at a completely different market segment. The Samsung is aimed at the workstation market, while the ADATA is clearly aimed at the gaming market.
