Adata has recently unveiled its latest product, the Legend 970 PCIe 5.0 SSD. Designed for high-performance desktops, this cutting-edge SSD combines Phison’s E26-based controller with an advanced active cooling system to deliver consistent and reliable performance, even under heavy workloads.
Performance and Capacity
The Legend 970 SSD is available in 1 TB and 2 TB capacities. It boasts impressive specifications, including a sequential read/write speed of up to 10,000 MB/s and a random read/write IOPS of 1.4 million.
These performance levels rival those of enterprise-grade SSDs currently on the market. Furthermore, the drives support modern SSD technologies, such as SLC cache, LDPC error correction, and AES 256-bit encryption.
Phison’s Controller and Micron’s NAND Memory
Like other PCIe Gen 5 SSDs, the Legend 970 utilizes Phison’s PS5026-E26 controller. For memory, the drives adopt Micron’s 232-layer TLC NAND with a speedy 1600 MT/s interface. This combination ensures optimal performance and responsiveness for demanding workloads.
One of the standout features of the Adata Legend 970 is its robust cooling system. While the cooling solution adds some bulk to the SSD, it effectively prevents thermal throttling. With dimensions of 80.6×24.2×17.9mm, the Legend 970 is primarily designed for desktop use. However, it’s important to note that the drive requires ample clearance to fit properly.
The NeonStorm SSD
Adata’s lineup of PCIe 5.0 SSDs will soon expand to include another impressive offering. The company’s XPG division is currently developing the NeonStorm SSD, which incorporates a self-contained liquid cooling system. With read speeds of up to 14 GB/s (thanks to TLC NAND with a 2400 MT/s interface), the NeonStorm SSD aims to set new standards for high-speed storage.
Warranty and Pricing
Adata stands behind the quality and reliability of its Legend 970 drives by offering a five-year global warranty. While the company hasn’t revealed specific pricing details, it is expected that the Legend 970 SSDs will be competitively priced compared to other first-generation PCIe Gen5 SSDs.
