GIGABYTE just announced the AORUS Gen5 AIC Adaptor, a single-slot card that features 4 NVMe M.2 slots and supports 4 16TB PCIe 5.0 SSDs.
By configuring a RAID array, the bandwidth can boost up to 60GB/s, which allow massive data files to be transferred in a snap. The eight integrated temperature sensors and active temperature-controlled double ball bearing fan also ensures ultra-cool data access.
“With the coming PCIe® 5.0 platform, high-speed storage can reach access speed of more than 10 GB/s. For users who chase higher performance, GIGABYTE AORUS Gen5 AIC leads the way to extreme performance by building a disk array. Integrating four PCIe® 5.0 slots, users can choose different NVMe M.2 SSDs with customized capacity and performance for the greatest flexibility. Meanwhile, the advanced thermal design prevents thermal throttling under high-speed operation which makes GIGABYTE AORUS Gen5 AIC the best choice when upgrading storage performance.”Said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division.
The AORUS Gen5 AIC Adaptor features brushed aluminum armor and a baseplate for advanced heat dissipation. The sleek single-slot design also greatly improves the convenience of expansion without the worries interference with other PCIe devices. Its unique internal thermal design also consists of an optimized large heatsink and a double-sided high conductivity thermal pad. This design can effectively dissipate heat generated from high-speed operation of the SSDs. Furthermore. The adaptor integrates eight thermal sensors which provide users with real-time control via the AORUS Storage Manager and SSD Tool Box applications.
The design of the independent PCIe® 5.0 controller, paired with an exclusive signal-stabilized controller, ensures that each SSD operates with actual PCIe® 5.0 bandwidth. This provide stable and high-speed performance. The adaptor also supports PCIe 5.0 interface and is backwards compatible with PCIe 4.0/3.0. Users can also increase system performance to the maximum 60GB/s bandwidth by configuring RAID with additional NVMe M.2 SSD.
