Galax is a brand that many have never heard of. They don't have a big presence in the west, but when it comes to the international PC enthusiast community, Galax is very well known. Galax is known to deliver the pinnacle in quality and performance with their HOF series products, which makes HOF products highly sought after by the overclocking community.
We believe the HOF Pro 2TB SSD really lives up to the standard set by other Galax HOF products, and just like those products, we would like to see the HOF Pro series SSDs made more readily available to PC enthusiasts in the west. Availability is our only gripe with the Galax HOF Pro SSDs.
We absolutely love the stunning looks of the Galax HOF Pro SSD. That all white PCB is gorgeous as is the drive's exotic looking heat sink. We will point out that the included heat sink is not required for throttle-free performance; in fact, we did not use it while testing.
In the end, it all comes down to user experience, and as you can see from the above chart, the 2TB HOF Pro delivers better than any 2TB SSD we've tested to date. Currently, there is nothing at 2TB that will perform better overall on your Gen4 enabled platform.
Looking back at our testing, we can spot several results that make the 2TB HOF Pro stand out as an elite performing SSD. A total score of well over 21.5K is not unexpected for an E16 powered SSD, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. The drive's dominating performance with AS SSD and its ability to deliver nearly 900K IOPS when writing random data is another head-turner. However, the most impressive result comes from the test we consider the most important, PCMark 10 Quick System Drive Benchmark, where the HOF Pro delivered the best results to date for a 2TB class flash-based SSD.
Elite looks combined with elite performance have earned the Galax HOF Pro 2TB Gen4 M.2 SSD TweakTown's highest award.
