G.Skill Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe SSD Review



Fancy seeing exactly how much bandwidth you can squeeze out of a Solid State Drive without taking up a slot? G.Skill has the answer.

i truly love the design of it, but wouldnt it be more fair to compare it to other PCIe SSD's instead of the regular sata SSD's or am i wrong?

The only other one we have done is the M6e matey and thats basically just an M.2 drive.

Cant compare it to PCIE drives if we have not done the testing to back it up. Theres always a period like this when things first come out

EDIT! Dayyym, That's some fast SSD shiznit, but really!, Green PCBs.. at a £500 price bracket I'd expect perfection with it being Black.

I also thought this. I don't understand why any product that isn't "Budget" still uses a green PCB

I wonder what the longevity of this product is. I still see Crucial selling older boards of this type and there boards are sensitive to different motherboard setups. Many have failed. I hope this is a long-lasting product.

A moment of silence for our brothers on x99 that don't have enough lanes to support this and an SLI configuration. (provided they spend the least possible on the cpu :P )
