COLORFUL is known for their crazy awesome GeForce GTX series graphics cards, but the company is pushing into PCIe-based SSDs with SMI controllers, with their new CN600 DRAM-less Series of SSDs.

The new COLORFUL CN600 and CP600 iGame SSDs will be available in 240GB right through to 2TB, with the CN600 DRAM-less rocking the SMI 2263XT controller. The CN600 is a M.2 2280 standard that provides up to 2GB/sec read speeds and 1.6GB/sec writes. We have the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface for those wicked-fast speeds, which will be available in 240GB up to 1TB.

 

COLORFUL's other CN600 DRAM Edition rocks the SMI2263 controller and DRAM that bumps the read/write speeds to 2.4GB/sec and 1.7GB/sec, respectively. The COLORFUL CN600 DRAM Edition has a unique cooling solution that keeps the drive as cool as possible, with capacities of 240GB up to 1TB.

 

Lastly, we have the flagship SSD from COLORFUL in the form of the CP600 iGame Edition, which is powered by a SMI2262 controller and reads of up to 3GB/sec, while writes hit 1.7GB/sec. COLORFUL's new CP600 iGame Edition has an RGB cooling solution, and a huge 5-year warranty backing it up. The CP600 iGame Edition will come in capacities of 480GB right up to 2TB.

 

COLORFUL hasn't released any pricing of their new PCIe SSDs just yet, but we'll hear more about them soon.
