We have a tendency to value performance above all, because it is exciting. To gain a proper perspective on ADATA's XPG Gammix S10, we need to take a step back from our enthusiast views and see the XPG Gammix S10 for what it brings to the table. The XPG Gammix S10 actually represents what most everyday consumers are looking for. Fast enough, good quality and the best value available.
The XPG Gammix S10 delivers to the consumer the lowest cost 4-lane NVMe SSD on the market. The XPG Gammix S10 has all the latest features, like LDPC ECC, SLC caching, data shaping, and a RAID engine for the ultimate in data protection. When you buy an XPG Gammix S10, you get more than just a capable drive, you get two great value adds - Acronis cloning software and ADATA's comprehensive SSD Toolbox.
Too top it off, the XPG Gammix S10 is in our opinion the best-looking M.2 solution on the market. The thin but substantial and very functional aluminum heat sink really brings the bling while providing on average 10c lower temps. Even the packaging is top notch. You can feel the quality in your hand. Additionally, ADATA backs the XPG Gammix S10 with an industry leading 5-year warranty.
In terms of value, the XPG Gammix S10 checks all the boxes. In terms of performance the XPG Gammix S10 isn't going to light the world on fire. But for most, the performance delivered is more than sufficient for most. The XPG Gammix S10 is much faster than SATA SSDs for everyday use, faster (and significantly cheaper) than Intel's popular 600p and it comes in the most popular form-factor - M.2 x 2280. No data or power cables, it just integrates onto your motherboard with a single screw.
