ADATA SR2000 breaks all records: up to 11 TB and 6 GB / s speed
Today we are going to talk about the new creation of ADATA, the ADATA SR2000 that comes in two formats and that provides up to 11 TB of capacity with a speed that reaches 3.5 GB / s of both reading and writing. While it is true that, initially, these new ADATA SR2000 will be launched for the industrial environment, we must bear in mind that traditionally the company usually launches models of similar characteristics for the user’s environment on purpose, under another name and other premises, so it is expected that not long after we find new SSDs of the brand under the name of XPG, ADATA’s gaming-oriented division.
ADATA SR2000 specifications go like this. The manufacturer launches two variants of this SSD, one in HHHL format (PCI-Express 3.0 x4 card), and another in 2.5-inch format (with PCI-Express 3.0 x8 interface). Both models mount NAND TLC memory chips, although it is true that the manufacturer describes them as eTLC (it is the type of NAND memory that has more durability) since it has values close to the MLC chips.
The ADATA SR2000P (the PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe model) achieves theoretical speeds of 3500 MB / s read and 3500 MB / s write, with 4K random read rates of up to 830,000 IOPS and 4K random write of up to 140,000 IOPS. This model will be available in capacities of 2 TB, 3.6 TB, 4 TB, 8 TB and 11 TB nothing more and nothing less. According to the manufacturer, at rest this SSD consumes only 7 watts, and at maximum load level, it reaches 21 watts of consumption.
This was the “slow” model. The ADATA SR2000 CP version has PCI-Express 3.0 x8 interface, and in this case reaches a whopping 6000 MB / s reading speed and 3800 MB / s writing speed, with (eye to data) up to one million IOPS of 4K random read speed, and 150,000 IOPS of 4K random write speed. It comes with the same capacities (up to 11 TB) that the previous model, and with a consumption of 8 watts at rest and 21 watts at full load.
What ADATA has not said is the availability of these new SSDs, nor its price, although it is true that given its characteristics we can predict without fear of making mistakes that will not be, at the moment, within reach of all pockets. However, as we said initially it is expected that the manufacturer launches models based on these under its brand XPG, and oriented to the user on foot, giving us the opportunity to acquire a SSD with performance values that we have not yet seen on a home PC.
