Something that really piqued our interest at Computex this year was spotting G.SKILL's amazingly fast Phoenix Blade PCIe-based SSD, an SSD capable of pushing a massive 2GB/sec, has been officially released by the company.




G.SKILL reaches these speeds within the Phoenix Blade using four LSI SF-2281 SSD controllers in a RAID0 setup, splashed together with 480GB of MLC flash. This amplifies the bandwidth up over four times the normal SATA 3-based SSDs, thanks to it sitting on an x8 PCIe slot. We have up to 2GB/sec read/writes, and 245,000 IOPS to ensure super-fast transfers.




The Phoenix Blade also supports TRIM and SMART support, which provides users with piece of mind that their data should be safe. We also have CRC data protection, which prevents data from corrupting during file transfers, and a great 3-year warranty from G.SKILL with full technical support from their tech team.
