XPG SX8000 PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive

The first M.2 2280 SSD from XPG, the SX8000 delivers massive speed for gaming notebooks and high-end desktops. Utilizing the super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface, the SX8000 reaches extremely high speeds of up to 2500/1100MB per second (read/write), outperforming SATA 6Gb/s by a huge margin - several times over, in fact! NVMe 1.2 qualified, the SX8000 delivers superior random read/write performance and multi-tasking capabilities. It implements 3D NAND Flash, which provides higher storage density and reliability compared to 2D NAND. With support for SLC Caching, DRAM Cache Buffer and LDPC ECC technologies, the SX8000 maintains optimized performance and data integrity during even the most intense gaming, rendering, overclocking, or other high-demand applications.

Blazing fast PCIe Gen3x4

Designed for gaming, overclocking, and graphics rendering, the SX8000 is perfect for applications that rely on superior storage performance. It is an ideal solution for high-end systems, leveraging the super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface to provide stunning read/write speeds up to 2500/1100MB per second. This is nearly four times faster than SATA 6Gb/s for read and over twice faster for write. The compact M.2 2280 form factor means users can easily install the SX8000 in gaming notebooks and desktop PCs with no messy cables or dedicated power leads. The SX8000 supports the latest Intel platforms, helping gamers and overclockers get the most out of their systems.

NVMe 1.2 certified

Meeting NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory express) revision 1.2 requirements, the SX8000 goes beyond high sequential throughput to excellent random performance and multi-tasking. Whether gaming, rendering, or overclocking, the SX8000 helps maintain system stability even under the most data-hungry conditions.

3D NAND Flash - higher capacity and reliability

Thanks to the flexibility of 3D NAND, we can offer the SX8000 M.2 2280 SSD in diverse capacities, ranging from 128GB to 1TB while keeping its compact form factor. Moreover, 3D NAND outperforms 2D NAND and offers higher efficiency and reliability. All SX8000 models provide high TBW (Total Bytes Written), meaning the number of times an SSD can write its entire capacity in one lifespan. The SX8000 has a TBW rating that outranks comparable models, indicating a longer-lasting SSD.

Intelligent SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer

Intelligent SLC Caching allows NAND Flash memory to operate in single-level cell mode and boosts read/write performance. In addition, with support for DRAM Cache Buffer, read/write performance can be as much as double that of solid state drives that lack a DRAM cache, or in other words that can't use system memory as an SSD buffer for high intensity tasks.

LDPC ECC Engine for high durability

LDPC (low density parity check) error correcting code has been implemented on the SX8000, leading to a massive reduction in data errors and an equal increase in data integrity. It protects your valuable content against corruption to a much greater extent than non-ECC SSDs or even SSDs that use basic BCH error correction. In addition, the SX8000 has a program/erase cycle three times longer than standard SSDs due to incorporating native hard and soft decode. Together, these ensure improved durability and a longer SSD lifespan.

RAID Engine and Data Shaping for enhanced protection

By supporting RAID Engine and Data Shaping, the SX8000 ensures data integrity and delivers extended SSD lifespan for better, longer-lasting stability and return on investment. You get an SSD able to fine-tune workload and stress balancing while easily integrating in storage arrays with a high degree of protection and privacy assurance.

Backed by a 5-year warranty

The SX8000 is made using the finest 3D NAND Flash and custom ADATA circuitry and boards. Every component passes meticulous screening, testing, and certification. The SX8000 therefore ships with the comfort of a 5-year warranty.
