TOP-CLASS GAMING STORAGE

Combining cutting-edge technologies into a compact body with optimized cooling structure, the PCIe®4.0 M.2 2280 SSD opens up next-gen gaming experience.

ULTRA-FAST PCIe®4.0

The combination of an 8ch controller and a 1200 MT/s 3D TLC NAND fully utilizes the PCIe®4.0 × 4 data bandwidth (about 8GB/s), achieving both top-class sequential speeds and random access performances for fast transferring and smooth operation of heavy workloads.

OPTIMIZED COOLING STRUCTURE

High performance and stability lasts thanks to the optimized heat dissipation design ― NEM-PA series comes with an aluminum heatsink* coated with a highly thermally radioactive black alumite, which suppresses thermal throttling (speed limit activation to prevent thermal runaway.)

*The original heatsink cannot be disassembled. When you mount this product on a desktop computer, make sure there is enough space for this M.2 SSD (W:23 mm × H:11.2 mm × D:80.4 mm) to be installed. This drive cannot be used for laptop computers.

How to add an M.2 SSD to a PS5™

ADVANCED
TECHNOLOGY FOR
LONGER LIFETIMES

Advanced technology for efficient and accurate operation of data transfer, writing, and storage balances the load on the SSD’s main backbone, resulting in a longer service life for the SSD.

Dynamic SLC

Dynamic SLC caching stores large 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

Equipped with DDR4 DRAM with up to 2 GB* capacity that achieves both fast and stable transfers.

* The DDR4 DRAM cache sizes are NEM-PA4TB = 2 GB, NEM-PA2TB = 2 GB, NEM-PA1TB = 1 GB.

Error correction algorithm (LDPC)

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.

RELIABLE STORAGE

Perfectly tested

All Nextorage SSDs are write/read tested at high temperatures specified by Nextorage before shipment, In addition to functional tests.

5 Year-limited warranty

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