ADATA Swordfish & Falcon M.2 NVMe SSDs

It seems many people are building brand new PCs this time of year and when it comes to storage we’ve seen a shift from people moving from traditional hard drives and even SATA-based solid state drives to M.2 NVMe storage.  With prices pretty low and many motherboards offering at least two M.2 slots it makes sense to go the M.2 route.  Today we will be taking a look at two M.2 NVMe solid state drives from ADATA.  The first is the Falcon, which offers sequential read and write speeds of 3100 MB/s and 1500 MB/s respectively.  Then we have the Swordfish, which is a bit slower with sequential speeds of 1800 MB/s read and 1200 MB/s write.

With that out of the way the Falcon may not be the fastest M.2 NVMe around when it comes to writes but it does exceptionally well in reads and that along with its heatspreader, higher endurance and the 5-year limited warranty is why it gets our Golden Award.

ADATA released a new NVMe SSD, it should be a value product based on the new Realtek RTS5762DL controller that moved its data over 4 channels. The product is tagged to reach 3 GBs reads and 1.5 GB/s writes at a price of roughly 130 USD for the 1TB model. We check out if the product is worth it.
