Specifications subject to change without notice

1 Test Conditions: Performance is based on the CrystalDiskMark™ 8.0.1 benchmark, 1000MB LBA range, on an Asus™ ROG Crosshair VIII Hero X570 desktop with AMD® Ryzen 9 3950X 16-Core, 32GB 3200MHz DDR4, Windows® 10 Pro
64-bit 20H1 using Microsoft® StorNVMe™ driver, secondary drive. 1 MB/s = 1 million bytes per second. IOPS = input/output operations per second. Based on internal testing; performance may vary depending upon host device, usage
conditions, drive capacity, and other factors.
2 1GB = 1 billion bytes and 1TB = 1 trillion bytes. Actual user capacity may be less depending on operating environment.

4 Backwards compatible with PCIe Gen3 x1, PCIe Gen2 x4, PCIe Gen2 x2, and PCIe Gen2 x1.
5 5 years or Max Endurance (TBW) limit, whichever occurs first. See for regional specific warranty details.
6 Download and installation required. Includes 5-year license for your compatible drive. Redeem within 90-days of purchase. May not be combined with other offers. Limited time offer, see for more details. Offer subject
to change.
7 TBW (terabytes written) values calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity.
8 Measured using MobileMark™ 2018 on Dell® Precision 7730 intel® Core™ i5-8300 CPU @ 2.30GHZ 8GB Windows 10 RS5 (1809) Bios 1.13.1.
9 Measured during continuous sequential read or write activity and indicates the average over 1 second intervals.
10 MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal testing using Telcordia™ stress part testing (Telcordia SR-332, GB, 25°C). MTTF is based on a sample population and is estimated by statistical measurements and acceleration algorithms.
MTTF does not predict an individual drive’s reliability and does not constitute a warranty.
11 Operational temperature is measured by thermal sensors in NAND package. The SSD box package is rated up to 60ºC.
12 Non-operational storage temperature does not guarantee data retention.
