Gigabyte Launches New AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD With Up to 7GB/s Read Speed


Gigabyte, one of the top global manufacturers of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware on Monday launched the new AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem SSD. The new SSD is said to offer up to 7GB/s read speed while optimizing passive thermal dissipation. The new AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem SSD also comes with an SSD ToolBox application, which users can use to control the overall operation of the SSD.

AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD features PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 interface and it equips the latest Phison E18 selected 8-channel controller. The controller is said to provide users with the ultimate random access rate, as well as the high-speed 3D-TLC NAND Flash.


The new AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD offers read speeds up to7 GB/s and writes speeds up to 6.85 GB/s.

“High-speed SSDs generate heat on full speed operation, and normally thermal throttling is implemented as a safety feature to prevent data loss, or wear-out the memory chips and controllers. The throttling state engages to maintain the stability and durability, however, it slows down the performance and it reduces the transfer rate.” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division.

“AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD uses ultra-durable design and high-quality materials for high-speed performance. Moreover, it optimizes the premium thermal standards set by our previous 7000s SSD products to provide users with an outstanding performance. Even without air flow, the thermal solution is capable of preventing the thermal throttling that might occur at the high-speed operation of SSD, thus boost the system performance.”

AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD supports all the motherboards with a 2280 NVMe M.2 interface design. To achieve a high read speed of 7 GB/s, Gigabyte recommends supported AMD X570 / B550 motherboards or Intel Z590 / B560 / Z490 / H470 motherboards with next-gen Intel Core processors. The SSD also comes with 5 years of warranty service.

The new Gigabyte AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD comes in 1TB and 2TB storage options.
