IRDM PRO M.2 SSD

Performance without compromise

The latest IRDM PRO M.2 SSD storage device is equipped with an extremely fast PCIe 4 x4 NVMe interface. Maximum read and write speeds of 7000 MB/s and 6850 MB/s, respectively, provide excellent performance and stability. Equipping a desktop or laptop computer with an IRDM PRO drive guarantees smooth and comfortable operation under the most demanding conditions, such as working with 3D modeling and animation or rendering images. Another of the opportunities IRDM SSD offers is to increase storage space on ninth-generation consoles that support SSDs with M.2 2280 form factor.

Unique Heatsink

Engineers and developers working on the IRDM PRO SSD did not only focus on technical performance, but also on the design. The heatsink that combines matte and glossy elements looks massive and further emphasizes the high quality of the whole device. By keeping the black color scheme, it refers to other products of the IRDM line, and the whole design retains a modern retro style, taking inspiration from the electronics of the 80’s.

High performance

The heatsink is made of aluminum, which conducts heat perfectly, and the additional holes and cut-outs that are also well matched with the brand logo, ensure a free and even airflow. Once installed, the heatsink guarantees a high performance of the drive even under extreme operating conditions, as proven in laboratory tests – SSD’s uptime at the highest speed increases by up to 6x when compared with using it without any type of heat dissipation tool. The height of the heatsink has been optimized to be as small as possible, yet as efficient as possible.

Warranty and technical support

The product is covered by manufacturer’s warranty for 5 years limited by TBW* and it comes along with technical support. Detailed tests and selection of components made it possible to create an efficient and durable SSD.

 

* TBW (Total Bytes Written) – SSD durability, a parameter that determines the maximum amount of data that can be saved on a drive until the warranty expires. The TBW parameter is defined in the SSD product specifications

Performance

1 Based on tests performed in Crystal Disk Mark 6.0.0 on SSD in FOB (fresh-out-of-box) state. Actual results may vary depending on your system configuration or SSD wear. 2 Based on tests performed in Iometer on SSD in FOB (fresh-out-of-box) state. Actual results may vary depending on your system configuration or SSD wear. 3The warranty period ends on the date when the SSD has exceeded its TBW.

[CZ]: "The IRDM PRO 2TB model is currently the best thing you can get from IRDM. It is definitely a fast and high-quality SSD drive that will definitel not be lost among the current competition. You will surely like the presence of massive cooling in the basic set and also the opportuity to choose whether to use this cooler or not. "

[FR]: "The advantage of the disk is excellent performance, Phison E18 controller, Micron 3D TLC NAND memory, a very nice heatsink and a 5-year warranty."

[HU]: "IRDM Pro SSD is a top SSD that brings out the fastest possible PCIe 4.0 x4 technology, and only PCIe 5.0 brings it faster. Cooling is also excellent, the warranty and 1400 TBW value also tells you that this SSD will be your faithful storage for a long time."

[ES]: "IRDM has left PCI Express 3.0 technology behind, and it does it in a big way with a high-speed storage unit that retains its performance well under heavy loads and has a unique finish."

[ES]: "The new series of IRDM PRO M.2 drives includes models with capacities from 1 TB to 4 TB. It is an extremely efficient unit with a very efficient heatsink that keeps the operating temperature of the device within very safe limits. In addition, the drive is distinguished by a good value for money."

The best and proven solutions

The use of the latest solution, which is the PCIe NVMe gen 4 x4 interface, provides high performance and very high read and write speeds. The type of FLASH memory used is the already well-known 3D TLC chips. What's more, the presence of a DRAM buffer of up to 2 GB DDR4 definitely increases the read and write speeds. Using the best quality components allowed to create a product that meets the expectations of the most demanding customers who refuse to compromise.

Phison controller

The management of the entire drive is handled by a technologically advanced PS5018-E18 chip, supplied by one of the best and most experienced manufacturers in the market, namely Phison. The eight-channel E18 controller, based on ARM Cortex R5 architecture, is used by the best SSD manufacturers. It supports the latest version of the NVMe protocol, i.e. 1.4, and is characterized by impressive maximum speeds of 7000 MB/s and 700 000 random IOPS.

Premium packaging

The IRDM PRO M.2 SSD is packed in an elegant box, which indicates that we are looking at a high-end product. Inside the box, you will find the drive itself, the heatsink, and a mounting kit consisting of a special plate, screws and a small screwdriver.
