Apacer gun-tastic PT920 Commando SSD
Apacer has been shooting its mouth off about its gun-themed PT920 Commando PCIe NVMe SSD.
Apacer hopes not to be the butt of any jokes but definitely has FPS gamers in their sights.
It certainly shows flare, and I will not be muzzled!
As you may have already guessed, this is not a stock SSD.
The PT920 Commando PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) NVMe (NVM Express) SSD offers read speeds of up to 2,500 MB/s sequential.
This SSD comes with a unique heatsink design. It has more than a passing resemblance to the handle of an M4 or M16 assault rifle.
You get the choice of it being loaded with either 240GB or 480GB capacities.
Both the 240GB and 480GB versions of SSD will offer sequential read speeds of 2,500 MB/s, with the 240GB and 480GB version offering sequential write speeds of 860 MB/s and 1,300MB/s respectively.
The 4K random write performance of this drive is rated at up to 175,000 IOPS for the 480 GB model and up to 160,000 IOPS for the 240 GB model.
As yet, pricing is strictly on a need to know basis. So don’t pull the trigger just yet.
Apacer, however, has said that both will be covered by a three-year warranty though. I shall be keeping an eye on the magazines for any further news.
Til then, keep your powder dry.
Do you think this is on target or more of a damp squib?
