Very little in the computer world has escaped the RGB craze the last few years and even something as small as the now humble M.2 drive couldn’t avoid it for long. While many M.2 drives are scattered around the motherboard where there is some free space, many motherboard manufacturers have settled on providing one slot it a clearly visible spot between the GPU and CPU. Viper Gaming has taken advantage of this with the new VPR100 RGB M.2 NVMe SSD. Featuring full-color zones of RGB lighting showing through an integrated heatsink, the VPR100 also provides maximum performance with more than 3300MB/s reads and 2900MB/s writes and capacities up to 2TB for even the largest game libraries.

One of the biggest issues with data is the constantly growing amount of it we need, and the need to have it with us. A byproduct of this is the need for speed. Those old USB 2.0 drives you had a few years ago are fine for a few documents, but transferring hundreds of gigabytes to or from them is something that takes seemingly eons in a time of instant data. Crucial gets around this problem by using the latest connectivity and internal architecture on its X8 series portable SSD. Capable of hitting transfer speeds of around 1GB a second, you don’t have to wait hours to take your large files along for the ride. It may even be faster than your internal storage! Taking advantage of USB’s faster 10gbps speeds and near-universal Type-C compatibility, the X8 can connect to anything and move data at the speed of you. Let’s take a little closer look and see how it does!

Kingston KC2000 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD

The world of SATA based SSD’s is slowly coming to a close with the raw speed and performance of PCIe based drives falling to near price parity.
