IRDM Ultimate X PCIe GEN 4 x4 NVMe M.2 SSD

GOODRAM announced cooperation with AMD on their new IRDM ULTIMATE X PCIe Gen 4 NVMe M.2 SSD. This collaboration is closely related to the recent launch of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Desktop Processors and AMD X570 motherboards. This innovative solution is fully compatible with the latest version of the PCI Express 4.0 interface, also supported by the AMD X570 chipset for Socket AM4.

As an innovative brand, IRDM by GOODRAM works with AMD to build drives with unprecedented data transfer speeds.

Key features
  • Available capacities:
    500 GB 1000 GB 2000 GB
  • Fastest PCIe gen 4 x4 NVMe interface
  • Read speed up to 5 GB/s
  • AMD Ryzen 3000 compatible
  • Includes heatsink

New definition of performance

Complying with new generation PCIe 4×4 interface, IRDM Ultimate X brings the new definition of SSD for enthusiasts and pro users. Additionally, transfer speed up to 5 000 MB/s read and 4 500 MB/s write, translates into unmatched comfort, no matter if you’re a gamer, video expert or photographer.

New possibilities with NVMe

NVM Express communication protocol was designed from the ground up to achieve the potential of fast flash based storage media. By utilizing it in IRDM Ultimate X SSD, we were able to extract the maximum performance from its memory, controller and PCIe Gen 4 x4 interface. NVMe drastically reduces latency and queuing to bring much better responsiveness vs. AHCI-based SSD.

Flexible form factor

IRDM Ultimate X SSD is available in M.2 2280 form factor with PCIe interface. It can be connected into new desktop motherboards and laptops with compatible M.2 port which support NVMe standard. The drive comes with heatsink which reduces the operating temperature and improves sustained performance.

Guaranteed quality

IRDM Ultimate X is based on selected 3D NAND Flash and 8-channel Phison PS5016-E16 controller. Extensive tests and component qualification translate into complete and reliable Solid State Drive. IRDM Ultimate X SSD is covered under 5-year warranty and free technical support.
