AORUS SSD – NVMe Gen4 SSD Review

WEB: AORUS MSRP: US $259.99 | ZAR 4,249 | AUTHOR: Neo

Just a week ago, I reviewed the Corsair Force MP600 Gen4 NVMe SSD drive and here we are again with another similarly spec’d drive. Or better yet, here is another drive with the exact same specifications or component list rather, the AORUS SSD. Yes, the full name is AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD, but that’s about as descriptive as AORUS DX12 Gen3 GPU. That said, at the heart of the AORUS SSD is the Phison PS5016-E16 controller, 512MB of DDR4 memory and 96 Layer 3D TLC NAND. This is a configuration we have already seen and will see a lot more of going forward. So, the obvious question then is who can make the most out of it?
