On today’s test bench we are making the leap into the realm of SSD reviews with the XPG SX8100 SSD review. This will be the first review from TheFPSReview of an SSD. We will continue to make new SSD reviews in the future and evolve our SSD review format constantly improving it, and adding comparisons.
Right now, we do not have any comparisons to use against the SSD being reviewed, but as time goes on and we review more SSDs we will be able to accumulate more comparison data and include them in reviews. We will also be able to take user feedback and improve the review format moving forward making sure all relevant data you are interested in is included.
Today we are reviewing the XPG SX8100NP 2TB M.2 2280 PCIe Gen3x4 NVMe Solid State Drive. The part number for the XPG SX8100 PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive is ASX8100NP-2TT-C with EAN code 4710273773711. We will simply refer to this SSD as XPG SX8100 2TB moving forward with the review.
If you are not familiar with XPG know that it was established by ADATA with the aim of providing high-performance products to gamers and enthusiasts. XPG stands for XTREME PERFORMANCE GEAR. All XPG hardware has to adhere to the ADATA A+ testing methodology which ensures stability and reliability. When you click on Gaming from the ADATA website it takes you to XPG.
XPG has several different lines of SSDs, using ADATA hardware of course. The newest is SX8800 Pro, and then there is SX8100 we are reviewing today, as well as a GAMMIX line and SPECTRIX line all with more robust heatsinks. XPG offers M.2 format as well as standard 2.5” drives and NVMe and SATA interfaces.
