Owners of AMD's X570 platforms and soon to be owners of AMD's TRX40 platforms are particular users that demand the best in performance and are not afraid to spend a few bucks for the privilege of owning the best. These are the users that Seagate has targeted with their new FireCuda 520 PCIe Gen4 SSD Series. As one of the world's largest storage providers, Seagate has a leg up on much of the competition and are offering a bit more here with its custom enhancements. Additionally, there is a certain peace of mind in knowing that Seagate will be around for a very long time should you need a warranty replacement or technical support down the line.
Looking back at our benchmarks, we love that the FireCuda 520 delivers unrivaled sequential speeds, but even more than that, we love that it delivers real performance where it matters most. As our PCMark 8 testing demonstrates, the FireCuda 520 isn't just a one-trick pony; it is serving up unrivaled user experience for AMD enthusiasts better than anything flash-based we've seen to date. Because of this, we are rewarding the FireCuda 520 with our top award. Nice job, Seagate!
