The SSD comes in several sizes: 500 GB  ($149.55), 1TB  ($211.67) and 2 TB  ($459.99) and the one I am testing today is the 1 TB version.

So what are the key features?

Fast!

Yeah, this is a fast SSD. With theoretical top speed of 5000 MB/s (seq read) and 4400 MB/s (seq write) it promises to be 30-40% faster than a tope end PCI-E 32.0-based M2 NVMe-drive.

Chilled

PCI-E 4-SSD get hot and need to be cooled. A lot of motherboards come with a heatsink that is attached at the top of the drive but Gigabyte has taken no chances and made sure the drive is properly cooled with a giant heatsink.

This copper heatsink makes whis SSD pretty thick so if you plan on using it on a motherboard that already have some cooling then either do not use the motherboard cooling or remove the heatsink from the SSD.
