GIGAYTE has announced the AORUS Gen4 7300 SSD, an upgraded PCIe 4.0 SSD that features advanced 3D-TLC NAND flash and read speeds of up to 7,300 MB/s. It will be available in 1 TB and 2 TB capacities, along with “a unique packaging design of separated SSD and heatsink packing to offer more flexible thermal solutions.” Pricing and dates of availability were not shared.

“With the rapid evolution of semiconductor process, the transfer speed of PCIe 4.0 SSD upraise from 5000MB/s to 7300MB/s and above which benefit greatly users who pursue storage performance and wish to avoid the bottleneck of system performance. “ Said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. “GIGABYTE has endeavored on SSD products in recent years and the shipments achieved the global top 10 with the ramp on self-brand products. Enhance by the technology evolution, the read speed of GIGABYTE PCIe 4.0 SSD boosts from 5000MB/s, 7000MB/s to 7300MB/s by AORUS Gen4 7300 SSD for impressive storage performance. In addition, the flexible design of a self-planned thermal solution for users reduces the chances of throttling and greatly improves the system performance.”

From a GIGABYTE press release:

Normally the high-speed SSD generates heat and results in throttling under full-speed operation, which puts limit on its transfer speed. In order to prevent possible throttling, most motherboards and SSD equip with heatsink to dissipate the heat of SSD. AORUS Gen4 7300 SSD adopts a unique packaging design of separated SSD and full-coverage heatsink packing, which allows users to choose the built-in heatsink on their motherboards or the enclosed heatsink of AORUS Gen4 7300 SSD in line with their needs. This enables more flexible thermal configuration whether for PC system installation or PS5 capacity expansion.

AORUS Gen4 7300 SSD supports motherboards with PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 interface design. To release the breakthrough performance of 7300MB/s read speed, the latest AMD motherboards, especially GIGABYTE motherboards are highly-recommended. With GIGABYTE R&D’s professional adjustment, comprehensive verification, and software enhancement, GIGABYTE motherboards offer more stability with superior performance, which is definitely the best choice for users.
