ADATA XPG SX6000 benchmark review: new cheap SSDs up to 2,100 MB / s


ADATA has presented its new XPG SX6000 Pro SSD that will have capacities of up to 1 TB and will use the Realtek controller to manage their NAND TLC 3D memories, reaching speeds of up to 2100 and 1400 MB / s. This new SSD line will arrive in the M.2 2280 format with the PCIe 3.0 x4 connection interface and the NVMe 1.3 protocol. The driver used by the brand in these SSD is the Realtek RTS5763DL and will be responsible for managing the 64-layer NAND 3D TLC memories it includes. The capacities in which it will be available are 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB, the sequential read and write speeds are up to 2100 MB / s and up to 1400 MB / s respectively.

When we talk about the performance in 4K random operations, the 256 GB SSDs have 190000 read IOPS and 180000 write IOPS, the same for the 512 GB; while the 1TB model has 250000 IOPS reading and 240000 IOPS writing. Within the SSD we find an SLC cache and AES 256-bit encryption.

These new SSDs are backed by a 5-year warranty, something they do not usually do with this type of storage units. ADATA has made it clear that these new SSDs are manufactured on one side, so there will be no problem with devices such as ultrabooks.

This SSD comes with the HMB technology, which allows the controller to reserve memory in the system for use by the SSD itself. So we can save different data to facilitate communication between the system and the SSD. This option is incorporated in the NVMe protocol from version 1.2.

We are facing a mid-range SSD that wants to compete with those of Samsung, has very similar prices, but is not able to reach the speed of the SSD of the Korean company that hover around 3400 MB / s.

This new variety of ADATA SSD, the XPG SX6000 Pro SSD, will be available soon on platforms such as Amazon. The price of the 256 GB model is set at $ 99.99, the price of 512 GB is $ 139.99 and the price of the 1TB model is $ 249.99.
