Final Thoughts & Conclusion
Gigabyte’s first jump into the NVMe SSD world appears to be a cost-effective but still highly capable option for those who love to keep their brand list to a minimum. With a street price of $70 for the 256GB version tested here, it’s pretty hard to even look at SATA SSD’s. For about $10 more than Gigabytes own 256GB UD Pro SATA drive, you get more than double the performance. The M.2 form-factor certainly has its benefits too, no cables, no mounting locations, no limitations. All you need is an open M.2 slot in your desktop, laptop, or small form factor PC and you are golden. With capacities ranging from 128GB to 512GB, Gigabyte has you covered from top to bottom.
