MSI Ventures into Solid State Drives
MSI has announced the launch of their solid state drive product line with the introduction of SPATIUM. The initial product offering will include M480, M470, and M370, which are Gen4 & Gen3 PCIe NVMe SSDs in compact M.2 2280 form factors that can be installed into compatible desktop motherboards and laptops.
MSI continues as a high-performance PC brand and SPATIUM was envisioned to expand our ecosystem and cover the high-performance storage category. These SSDs are built with high-quality, high-density 3D NAND flash that deliver the best compromise of performance and endurance for professionals, content creators, and gamers. Among the performance improving technologies include a DRAM cache buffer for M480 and M470, and a SLC cache for all announced models.
SPATIUM M480 brings next-level storage performance to demanding content creators and gamers. Compliance with PCIe Gen 4 and NVMe 1.4 standards unleash the latest in extreme transfer speeds up to 7000 MB/sec sequential read and 6850 MB/sec sequential write speeds. M480 will be produced in three storage capacities – 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. These SSDs are the fastest in the entire SPATIUM lineup.
SPATIUM M470 was developed to meet the expectations of mainstream SSD consumers. Blazing fast speeds up to 5000 MB/sec sequential read and 4400 MB/sec sequential write speeds allow users using the latest generation of PCs to enjoy the capabilities of the PCIe Gen4 interface. Available storage capacities are 1TB, and 2TB.
SPATIUM M370 marks our entry-level offering with its PCIe Gen3 interface, yet still offers the essential benefits of rapid file transfers and short loading times. 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB storage capacities are available that deliver ultra-fast speeds up to 2400 MB/sec sequential read and 1850 MB/sec sequential write speeds.
All of the announced SPATIUM SSD products support a comprehensive range of data error correction features including LPDC ECC and E2E Data Protection, providing a high TBW (Terabytes Written) for excellent durability and longevity. A limited 5-year warranty backs these products and MSI is ready to assist customers in most global regions.
