ADATA Technology Launches LEGEND 960 MAX PCIe 4.0 SSD for Creators

Designed for Ultimate Heat Dissipation and Fully Compatible with the PS5

Taipei, Taiwan – November 8th 2022 – The COVID-19 pandemic and the emergence of next-generation Intel and AMD motherboards have incited a wave of consumer PC replacement as well as growing demand for high-efficiency PCIe 4.0 SSDs. With additional consideration towards the PS5’s SSD heat dissipation requirements, ADATA Technology Co., Ltd., a leading global memory products brand, has launched the LEGEND 960 MAX as of today. The LEGEND 960 MAX SSD has won Japan’s GOOD DESIGN Award and features continuous read/write speeds of up to 7,400/6,800MB per second. Its unique 3D radiator fin design can reduce temperatures of SSDs mounted in PS5 consoles by as much as 40%[1]. The LEGEND 960 MAX and LEGEND 960 are part of the same series of SSD products and the prior LEGEND 960 model can be installed in Intel® Evo™ certified lightweight notebooks. In the face of Web 3.0’s unlimited creative universe, this new product is expected to become the most ideal storage solution for consumers.

Ultimate Specifications with Exceptional Heat Dissipation

The LEGEND 960 MAX employs a PCIe 4.0 transmission interface conforming to NVMe 1.4 standards. The SSD features exceptional 7,400/6,800MB per second read/write capabiliies that are 4 times that of standard PCIe 3.0 SSDs and is backward compatible with the PCIe 3.0 platform. When handling a multitude of intensive creations, the LEGEND 960 MAX delivers 750K/630K IOPS random Read/Write speeds, improving multitasking efficiency and is suitable for driving exceptional performance in the latest Intel or AMD platforms. The professionally designed thermal convection effect produced by a 3D radiator fin profile enables an additional 40% cooling on motherboard installed SSDs and is an optimal solution for highly complex design tasks such as 3D animation, game development, and visual virtualization.

Expanding PS5 SSD Storage: A Perfect Paring for Creation and Gaming

In addition to creative projects, the LEGEND 960 MAX is also a perfect pairing for gaming PCs. Utilizing a PCIe Gen4 x4 interface, the LEGEND 960 MAX features a read/write speed of over 7GB/s and its 4TB capacity thoroughly fulfills the SSD expansion requirements of the PS5[2]. Furthermore, its aluminum alloy casing provides additional surface area for enhanced heat dissipation. The unique design of its convective radiator fin manifold further unlocks an astonishing 40% cooling effect on gaming PC SSDs, not only remedying insufficient capacity issues inherent to out-of-the-box PS5 consoles, but also providing an uninterrupted gaming experience for players.

Practiced Quality Energizes Virtual Creations

The LEGEND 960 MAX provides unique advantages to system loading and data buffering via a SLC cache algorithm and DRAM Cache Buffering. The entire SSD product line is equipped with a Low Density Parity Check Code (LDPC) mechanism and high-level AES 256-bit encryption technology for ensuring accurate and safe data transmission and securing intellectual properties from easy interception. A 5-year warranty is provided globally. For more detailed product information, please visit our official website:
