Starting with the fastest drives, the T-Force G70 Pro and T-Force G70 deliver max speeds of up to 7,400MB/s for sequential reads and 6,800MB/s for sequential writes. Those sequential metrics apply to both the 4TB and 2TB capacity models.
Meanwhile, the 1TB variant also delivers up to 7,400MB/s for reads while retaining nearly-as-fast writes at 6,200MB/s. There’s also a 512GB model, which is rated to deliver 7,200MB/s for sequential reads but just 2,600MB/s for sequential writes, which while fast is a steep drop off compared to the other models.
Meanwhile, the T-Force G50 Pro and T-Force G50 sport speeds that are more in line with the the initial crop of PCIe 4 SSDs when they first arrive on the scene. The G50 lineup also tops out at 2TB. Here’s how the rated performance metrics break down by capacity…
- 2TB T-Force G50 Pro/G50: 5,000MB/s sequential read, 4,800MB/s sequential write
- 1TB T-Force G50 Pro/G50: 5,000MB/s sequential read, 4,800MB/s sequential write
- 512GB T-Force G50 Pro/G50: 5,000MB/s sequential read, 3,500MB/s sequential write
While no longer class-leading in PCIe 4.0 territory, those are still fast speeds that leave mechanical hard disk drive (HDDs) in the dust, as well as SATA-based SSDs (whether they’re of the 2.5-inch or M.2 variety).
Like the G70 Pro and G70 drives, the Pro designation on the G50 series indicates the inclusion of an aluminum heatsink and some amount of DRAM cache.
