Team Group releases world’s first Water-Cooled SSD: cool down 10°C

Posted in Jul 29, 2019 in News, no comment

Team Group’s latest release of T-Force Cardea Liquid M.2 is currently known as the first SSD with water cooling (strictly called self-cooling), but it is relatively simple, it is a closed system, the interior is divided into two chambers. Room, next to the flash memory chip, the liquid in the main control chamber is heated, and then flows to the second chamber (with an aluminum heat sink outside), the temperature is lowered and then returned, so reciprocating cycle.

The drive has a PCIe Gen3 x4 interface and supports NVMe 1.3 protocol. It comes in 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities. The 256GB model achieves sequential read speeds of up to 3000MB/s, while the other two variants offer read speeds of up to 3400MB/s. The maximum SSD write speed of 256 GB is 1,000 MB/s, 512 GB-2,000 MB/s, and 1 TB-3,000 MB/s. Random access performance for the 256GB model is up to 200,000 IOPS. The 512GB model shows 350,000 IOPS in read mode and 300,000 IOPS in write mode. Finally, the 1TB drive has 450,000 IOPS and 400,000 IOPS in read and write mode respectively.

Since there is no external cooling device or the like, the actual heat dissipation effect depends not only on the coolant but also on the heat sink and the surrounding environment. Officials claim that after using water to cool, the temperature of the SSD can be reduced by 10 °C.

Another thing to note is that this SSD has no coolant when it leaves the factory and needs to be added by the user. At the same time,pay attention to the compatibility of the X570 motherboard, because the motherboard basically has active fan cooling, and Team Group also gives a list of intimately.

As for the resource, it is possible to write 380 TB of data for a 256 GB SSD, 800 TB for a 512 GB SSD, and 1665 TB for a 1 TB SSD. Prices are not yet named. Sales should start in August.
