An SSD as Assault Rifle

E-mail Print PDF

Taiwanese memory maker Apacer launches an SSD with a striking appearance-- the PT920 Commando PCIe NVMe SSD has a look more akin to a science fiction prop than regular storage device.

Commando SSDThe company says the design is "inspired by an assault rifle... with details like sight aperture and ejection port." As one might expect, the SSD is aimed at the gamer market, seeing how it follows other PC components with a military-themed look, such as the Gigabyte G1-Killer Assassin motherboard.

When it comes to specification, the PT920  offers 2500MB/s sequential read and 1350MB/s sequential write speeds, with a random 4K write of 175000 IOPS. It is NVMe 1.2 compliant, features built-in global wear levelling and end-to-end data protection, together with an ECC engine correcting up to 120bit/2KB. Smart ECC and Smart Refresh maintain accuracy and data access safety.

The PT920 is avialable in 240 and 480GB configurations.
