ADATA has launched a new M.2 SSD drive. The Falcon SSD is capable of reaching sustained read/write speeds of up to 3100 and 1500MB/s respectively, using a PCIe Gen3 x4 interface that complies with the NVMe 1.3 standard.
This new solid state drive from ADARA uses the M.2 2280 form factor, meaning that it should be compatible with the vast majority of motherboards that support M.2 SSDs. The Falcon also comes equipped with support for LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology, which ADATA claims can prolong the drives’ lifespan.
