With the advent of 5G networks and the ever-growing volume of data being processed, the PCIe Gen4 interface is a critical upgrade that will bring storage devices to the next level. The S50 Lite expands the GAMMIX S50 series with a new option for mainstream users wanting to harness the capabilities of PCIe 4.0.
“With the launch of the S50 Lite, we have now extended our PCIe 4.0 SSD offering to meet not only the demands of early adopters but also mainstream users, whether for work or play,” said Ibsen Chen, Director of Product Marketing at ADATA. “With support from our strategic partners at Silicon Motion, we have invested in developing a next-generation SSD that is accessible and offers exceptional performance.”
“We are very excited that ADATA has launched the new GAMMIX S50 Lite SSD powered by SMI’s new SM2267 PCIe Gen4 controller solution,” said Nelson S. Duann, Senior Vice President of Marketing and R&D at Silicon Motion. “As a long-time partner, Silicon Motion offers best-in-class support to meet ADATA's high-quality requirements. The new GAMMIX S50 Lite and our SM2267 bring enhanced user experiences and high performance to help usher the upgrade cycle to PCIe Gen4 SSDs."
Sporting a SMI SM2267 controller, the latest PCIe Gen4 interface, and support for NVMe 1.4, the S50 Lite can achieve sustained read/write performance of up to 3900/3200/MB/s. It also delivers random read and write performance of up to 490K/540K IOPS, giving users the advantage of expedited data transmissions for enhanced productivity and entertainment. What’s more, because of the SM2267 controller and an optimized thermal design the S50 Lite stays cool, up to twenty percent cooler, for excellent stability. In combination with Dynamic SLC Caching and Host Memory Buffer, the S50 Lite offers performance that is superior to that of SATA SSDs.
The S50 Lite is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0 for ease of use and convenience.
On top of its core performance characteristics, the S50 Lite supports LDPC error correcting code technology to detect and fix a more comprehensive range of data errors for more accurate data transfers and a higher Total Bytes Written (TBW) rating. In addition, with End-to-End (E2E) Data Protection, RAID Engine support, and AES 256-bit Encryption, the S50 Lite ensures data security and integrity. All of the components encased in the S50 Lite have passed meticulous screening, testing, and certification to provide a reliability product of the highest quality.
