TEAMGROUP is taking M.2 SSD cooling up a notch with its latest solution for solid state drives.
Announced today, TEAMGROUP’s N74V-M80 is an M.2 SSD that features the industry’s first-ever vapor chamber cooler designed for high-performance industrial SSDs. It leverages liquid-cooling technology to remove heat and reduce temperatures, ensuring “outstanding thermal performance that can sustain high-speed operation in harsh and dynamic industrial environments.”
The specifics behind the vapor chamber’s design, per TEAMGROUP:
Through the specially designed VC liquid cooling tubes, cooling fluid is pumped to the heat zone of PCIe M.2 SSD controller. Heat is then transferred to the aluminum fin heat sink with a convective design via gas-liquid phase transition to enhance thermal performance. The N74V-M80 combines the functions of heat absorption, conduction, and dissipation to better transfer and regulate thermal energy. TEAMGROUP’s industrial control T.R.U.S.T. technology (“T” for Temperature) ensures that its PCIe M.2 SSD products maintain excellent transfer performance over a wide temperature range of -40°C (-40°F) to 85°C (185°F).
As for the SSD itself, TEAMGROUP can confirm that it uses TLC flash and “supports the PCIe Gen 3×4 interface and NVMe 1.3 standard, providing write and read speeds of up to 3,400 and 2,500 MB/s, respectively.
TEAMGROUP’s product page for the N74V-M80 includes a chart that demonstrates the benefits of its vapor chamber liquid-cooling technology, showing how M.2 SSDs equipped with the cooling module could see reduced read and write times by as much as 75%.
Vapor chambers may be found in premium laptops and smartphones, such as the ASUS ROG Phone 6. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Xbox One X consoles also feature vapor chambers for improved cooling.
