TEAMGROUP releases many gaming products, but it’s their SSD line which seems to offer the widest choice. Today, we present you the Cardea A440 SSD, which combines high performance with other features that are essential for gamers and power users alike. The SSD is also available in capacities of up to 8TB!
I won’t share everything in the introduction just yet, but the Cardea A440 is an interesting option in the very rich SSD market. Keep reading to find out why I said that.
The tests will be performed on the latest AMD Ryzen 7000 platform, which shouldn’t limit the SSD in any way. Let’s start with some technical data and product features.
Enjoy the lightning speed of the PCIe Gen4 x4
Supports the latest PCIe Gen4 x4 specification, reaching 7,000/6,900 Mb/s, provides outstanding performance 15 times faster than ordinary SATA SSDs, and is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0 ports.
Featuring two patented heat sinks
The first in the industry to incorporate two patented heat sinks, giving you the benefits of a patented high-strength aluminum heat sink and a patented ultra-thin graphene heat sink at the same time, so you can choose your preferred method for dissipating heat.
Effective cooling—flexible installation
The patented high-strength aluminum heat sink features a unique thermal diversion design, capable of effectively reducing the temperature by up to 15%. The patented ultra-thin graphene heat sink features graphene material with excellent thermal conduction performance, delivering heat dissipation rates of up to 9%. Two patented heat sinks allow for flexible assembly without interference issues.
Supports the latest NVMe 1.4 standard
Supports the latest NVMe 1.4 standard, optimizes the NVM sets distribution mechanism and Predictable Latency Mode (PLM), effectively reducing latency, while minimizing read/write damage and improving system QoS. Uses the latest Read Recovery Level (RRL) technology to extend the SSD’s service life.
