[Bestbuy618 Notebook Channel]In today’s era of widespread self-publishing, an increasing amount of content is appearing in the form of photos, videos, and other media. People are taking more and more videos and photos, whether for professional photography, self-publishing, or as a personal hobby, and these hobbies are becoming more popular. As a result of this phenomenon, the demand for storage products has increased, and various types of storage products have emerged and become increasingly powerful. People want large capacity while also wanting faster transmission speed, which poses a challenge to major manufacturers.
In recent years, domestic storage technology has advanced, and there is no shortage of manufacturers who have been working in the field of storage for many years. aigo believes that no one is unfamiliar with a domestic brand that specializes in storage products and has many years of technical experience. In terms of product innovation, aigo has been at the forefront of the industry, and in recent years, it has expanded its business scope in order to bring users the true “national goodies.” The aigo National Goodies SSD P7000, a solid state drive that supports the PCle4.0 protocol, is the product we’ll be reviewing today.
PCle4.0 is one of the more popular standards in recent years; it has higher performance and can significantly improve the hard drive’s I/O capability, allowing it to be used more efficiently. This protocol is gaining traction and is the focus of competition among major storage manufacturers. The aigo SSD P7000 is the first SSD under aigo to fully support the PCle4.0 protocol, and its performance has been comprehensively upgraded in all aspects, with the official claim that the speed exceeds that of the Samsung 980 PRO, so let’s take a look at its specific performance today. The Qunlian PS5018-E18 main control chip is used, and the flash memory employs more mature Magnesium TLC flash particle technology, with a single flash memory capacity of 256GB and a total of four pieces to make up the total storage capacity of 1TB.
As shown in the figure, the motherboard we chose for the test platform is the Gigabyte X570 GAMING X, which has two full-blooded PCIe4.0 M.2 SSD interfaces. The processor is an AMD R7 3700X, and the memory is Corsair Avenger LPX DDR4-3600MHz high-frequency memory, with all parameters set to ensure that the aigo SSD P7000 performs as it should. Next, we will use five test tools to evaluate the theoretical performance of this SSD in terms of sequential performance, comprehensive performance, 4K random, and so on.
The first test software we chose is CrystalDiskMark, which is a relatively mainstream storage device performance test tool that is simple to use, allows us to independently select different queues and depths, and produces more accurate results. As can be seen, in terms of read and write speed, the maximum read speed reached 7143.88MB/S, which exceeds the official data. The write speed can reach up to 5380.32MB/S, which is also very close to the official speed of 5500MB/S given.
TxBENCH was then used, and the results were even closer to the official published speed data this time. The read speed was 7077.902MB/S, while the write speed was 5567.052MB/S. As you can see, the aigo SSD P7000 already has very high sequential performance and can be considered to have reached the PCle4.0 SSD benchmark level.
ATTO Disk Benchmark is a widely applicable tool that allows you to write virtual data files to a memory card in order to test the actual read and write speeds, as well as set the size of the written files and total amount of data. The options range from 512B to 64MB, with a total storage capacity of 1GB. The aigo SSD P7000 can read at up to 6.95GB/S and write at up to 5.01GB/S.
HD Tune Pro is a relatively comprehensive software that provides a detailed inspection of the drive’s transfer rate, health status, temperature, and other parameters. It also detects the drive’s firmware version, serial number, and so on. We chose to write approximately 120GB of files for the test.
The read speeds have been stable, as shown in the graph. Write speeds were mostly stable as well, with a sharp drop when the write data reached about 107GB, ending up at 1000MB/S. This indicates that the cache capacity of the aigo SSD P7000 is approximately 107GB.
Finally, the AS SSD, a highly customizable software that includes continuous read and write testing, single-threaded 4K random read and write testing, and 64-threaded 4K random read and write testing, was used to provide a more realistic picture of the drive’s performance. The aigo SSD P7000 achieved a maximum 4K random read speed of 493324 IOPS and a random write speed of 600276 IOPS during the test, for a total score of 6456, which is very good among similar SSDs. Following a series of theoretical tests, we can see that the aigo SSD P7000 is a top performer in terms of both sequential performance and 4K random read and write, and has reached the ultimate in M.2 NVMe SSD performance A good SSD can significantly improve computer performance, particularly in everyday use.
The aigo SSD P7000 is a high-end product aimed primarily at consumer groups such as heavy gamers, video and image content creators, and so on. The high storage requirements and faster performance can provide users with a more comfortable experience.
The overall performance of the aigo SSD P7000 is not inferior to, but even outperforms, the previous Samsung 980 PRO in terms of speed, which perfectly fits the label of “national goodies.” Many people believe that domestic storage manufacturers are more technologically advanced than foreign brands such as Samsung SanDisk, but I do not believe that the gap between domestic and foreign has narrowed, and our domestic storage has also advanced to the forefront of the industry. Many domestic manufacturers’ efforts are aimed at providing users with good and cost-effective storage products, and I believe that this is also the original intention of aigo’s continuous innovation and breakthrough.
