Gigabyte unveils the Aorus Gen4 7300 SSD, with read speeds of up to 7.3GB/s.

Press Releases

Although the era of PCIe 5.0 SSDs has arrived, Gen4 drives are not going away anytime soon. For example, Gigabyte recently unveiled the Aorus Gen4 7300 SSD, an enhanced PCIe 4.0 SSD with read performance of up to 7300MB/s.

A Phison E18 8-channel controller powers the SSD, providing customers with a high random access rate and high-speed 3D-TLC NAND Flash and SLC cache design capable of saturating the PCIe 4.0 standard. In real-world testing, it achieved read speeds of up to 7300MB/s and write speeds of up to 6850MB/s, making it roughly 13 times faster than a SATA III SSD.

PCIe 4.0 SSDs can generate a lot of heat when fully loaded, which can cause throttling if not properly cooled. To avoid this situation, Gigabyte has included a unique full-coverage heatsink that allows users to choose between the motherboard’s built-in aluminium heatsink and the included heatsink. This design also enables more flexible thermal configurations for PCs and PS5 consoles.

The Aorus 7300 Gen SSD will be available in 2TB and 1TB capacities, with SMART, TRIM, and AES-256 encryption support. Customers can use Gigabyte’s proprietary GCC (Gigabyte Control Center) software management platform to monitor the SSD and change specific drive settings.
