First introduced in April 2019 with an eye-catching and impressive image. Up to now the SSD Aorus RGB AIC NVMe This is actually available in Vietnam although it is only in "sample" form (commercial model) but the commercial version will probably be quickly released in Vietnam.
Appears in a simple black box with the Aorus logo in the center of the same name the product is coated with a sparkling seven-color coating. This Aorus box design is practical but luxurious.
Inside is the SSD neatly nestled between a 2-layer protective foam layer.
Just like the name Aorus RGB AIC NVMe, the SSD appears in the form of an Add-in card (AIC). The genuine scratched black and gray metal case is our first impression of this SSD.
The front of the SSD is a shiny Aorus logo. Modern grooves and patterns make this surface less boring. If the gamers can't imagine it, just take the high-end RGB ram pairs on the market to refer to it and know the material of the shell that makes up the frame of this SSD.
The back of the SSD is also a metal plate with the same material as the front. In addition to the Aorus motifs and logos, some information about the product is also provided through the warranty void sticker affixed on the surface.
The most attractive feature of this SSD in the design probably comes from a bright mirror led bar with striking lines that look extremely impressive. Not only does it stop at the tail of the card, but this light guide is also extended to the other side of the SSD so that the circuit is not exposed when installing the SSD into the system. In addition, this design is appreciated by us for its ability to resist dust coming from moving air in the case, avoiding internal dust clogging which affects the heat dissipation performance and SSD life.
Although the SSD cannot be removed due to void stamps, but luckily, Aorus's website has allowed us to see the structure of this Aorus RGB AIC NVMe.
Like other AIC SSD formulas, Aorus RGB AIC NVMe uses PCIe 3.0 x4 interface with much higher bandwidth and data transfer speeds than some of the SSDs using PCIe 3.0 x2 on the market.
When placing the Aorus RGB AIC NVMe into the system, it becomes extremely harmonious with the overall brand of other products, even more prominently than the graphics card we are using. Colorful RGB led system with smooth and varied motion effects. However, the LED effect does not cover the light guide, but only the long side is bright in the morning, so it is a bit disappointing.
Through some simple tests like Crystal Disk Mark, Aorus RGB AIC NVMe fully meets the promised speed on its website. The sequential read and write speed is relatively high while 4K random read and write speeds are not impressive but are just enough for gamers. Overall, the Aorus RGB AIC NVMe is still an SSD that provides a full range of high-end gaming experiences that few other SSDs can do.
With the design and speed experience, this card is not expected to be cheap. Especially they are born for high-end users with two 512GB and 1TB versions so high prices are understandable. But despite being high for Aorus fans, it absolutely deserves to be down because it's so great for a gaming brand just a few years old.
