Nextorage Starts Selling M.2 PCIe®4.0 NVMe built-in heatsink SSD “NEM-PA Series” and Gaming PC SSD “G Series” in Germany

Kanagawa, Japan ― Nextorage Corporation will start selling its PCIe® Gen 4.0 x4 (“PCIe® 4.0”) M.2 2280 NVMe built in Heatsink SSD “NEM-PA series” and “G Series” SSD for Gaming PC (without Heatsink) which have been popular in Japan and the US market on Amazon Germany from November 1st, 2023.
Nextorage was established on October 1, 2019, as a company specializing in the memory storage solutions business led by engineers and staff who built on 20 years of history in memory storage at Sony.

NEM-PA Series

G Series


The NEM-PA and G series are M.2 2280 SSD equipped with a PCIe® 4.0 / NVMe 1.4 controller and a 3D TLC NAND. The drive achieves sequential read up to 7,300 MB/s [1], sequential write up to 6,900 MB/s [1], and random read/write up to 1,000 K IOPS [1] (in a PC environment). The NEM-PA series comes with a heatsink for heat dissipation. Both series deliver high-speed loading and smooth gaming experience.

Highlights (NEM-PA Series)

Expand users’ PlayStation® 5 storage.
Compatible with PS5™, confirmed by Nextorage, the NEM-PA series fits into the expansion slot of the PS5 console or PS5 Digital Edition console. Increasing the storage capacity of PS5 allows users to download, copy, and start PS5 and PS4™ games from the M.2 SSD storage. Compatibility was tested in PS5 (version: 23.02-08.00.00). This is not a product developed under the license program of Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. Compatibility and performance are not guaranteed for all game titles.

Optimized cooling structure (NEM-PA Series)

High performance and stability last thanks to the optimized heat dissipation design — the NEM-PA series comes with an aluminum heatsink coated with highly thermally radioactive black alumite, which suppresses thermal throttling (speed limit activation to prevent thermal runaway). The heatsink cannot be disassembled. When users mount this product on a desktop computer, make sure there is enough space for the M.2 SSD to be installed. This drive cannot be used for laptop computers.

Ultra-fast PCIe® Gen 4.0 x4 (NEM-PA & SSD G series)

The combination of an 8-channel controller and a 1200 MT/s 3D TLC NAND fully uses the PCIe® 4.0 data bandwidth (approx. 8 GB/s), and rates sequential read up to 7,300 MB/s [1], sequential write up to 6,900 MB/s [1], and random access performance up to 1,000 K IOPS [1] read and write (in a PC environment). It provides powerful operability even for game titles that require high responsiveness.

Large-capacity dynamic SLC cache & DDR4 DRAM (NEM-PA & SSD G series)

Dynamic SLC caching stores cache size up to 1/3 of the total storage area of SSD, which accelerates frequently accessed data and extends the life of TLC NAND. DDR4 DRAM with up to 2 GB capacity achieves both fast and stable transfers.

* The DDR4 DRAM cache sizes are NEM-PA2TB = 2 GB, and NEM-PA1TB = 1 GB

Error correction algorithm (LDPC) (NEM-PA & SSD G series)

The SSD controller has a high precision error correction algorithm “4th Gen LDPC (Low Density Parity Check),” which has advanced detection and correction technology for random bit errors that occur during reading and protects the data from corruption.

Reliability & quality (NEM-PA & SSD G series)

In addition to functional tests, all NEM-PA series and G series SSDs are tested for write/read functions at high temperatures specified by Nextorage before shipment.

5-year limited warranty (NEM-PA & SSD G series)

Warranty and product support valid for 5 years from the original date of purchase or before writing the maximum TBW (Total Bytes Written)

[1] The maximum performances in the text represent the performance of NEM-PA2TB/4TB and G series 2TB/4TB. Performance and power consumption may differ depending on the measurement conditions. Since the measured value also depends on factors other than the items described above, the indicated performance are not guaranteed. The measured value is based on the following conditions:

CPU : AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16-Core Processor
Motherboard : MSI MEG X570 ACE
OS : Windows 10 Professional 64bit
Measurement software : ATTO Disk Benchmark Ver.3, Total Length = 1 GB

CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor
Motherboard : Gigabyte X570 AORUS MASTER
OS : Windows 10 Professional 64bit
Measurement software : IOMeter, 1GB range, 4K data size, QD=128, 16 worker, 4k aligned

[2] 1 GB = 1 billion bytes. The actual usable capacity (user area) is smaller than the indicated capacity due to its use for system area.

[3] TBW is calculated based on JEDEC 218/219 workload

[4] MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) is calculated based on simulation software (Relex7.3). High-capacity drives are expected to have low MTBF and the minimum MTBF applies to all capacities.

[5] Operating temperature is specified by the Flash temperature (not the environmental temperature.) Maximum performance is not guaranteed over the entire operating temperature range.
