Extreme performance

The IRDM PRO NANO uses the PCIe NVMe Gen. 4 x4 interface. This is one of the most efficient interfaces currently available on the market, guaranteeing above-average data transfer speeds. Unrivalled and impressive sequential speeds of up to 7,300 MB/s read and 6,000 MB/s write maximally reduce file ripping times and allow for faster game installations. With IRDM PRO NANO, games will load even faster and the operation of applications will be extremely smooth and fast.

Data security at the highest level

The IRDM PRO NANO uses the best components. The controller used ensures the reliable operation of the drive. Other elements of the drive’s equipment, such as ECC and thermal throttling, are also not without significance. Also crucial is the high TBW level, which reaches 1,200 TB. It ensures the longevity of the SSD and also significantly reduces the drive’s susceptibility to read and write intensive failures.



Versatile applications

In the era of the pursuit of ever smaller, more compact devices, the IRDM PRO NANO, in addition to handheld consoles, will also prove successful in laptops and ultrabooks which, due to their small dimensions, are only able to fit 2230 drives. In laptops, the IRDM PRO NANO can serve as a simple way of significantly expanding memory. The latest drive from the IRDM will also find use in a special SSD bay allowing it to be used like an external drive. This practical and versatile application makes the medium an invaluable tool for those who value mobility without having to sacrifice high storage performance.

Space for all your games!

Capacities: 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB, in which the IRDM PRO NANO is available, will meet the needs of seasoned gamers, professionals, photographers and all users in need of a drive with high capacity, great technical performance and a miniature size.

All PRO NANO variants are covered by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty, which is a confirmation of the highest quality of the product.
