Quick OverviewModel - Transcend 220S
Storage & Interface
of transcend's PCIe SSD 220S is targeted at high-end applications such as digital audio/video production, games, and enterprise applications that require constant processing of high workloads without system delays or speed degradation. Using the PCI Express® Gen3 x4 interface, supported by the latest NVMe™ standard, 3D NAND flash memory, and DRAM cache, the PCIe SSD 220S offers exceptional transfer speeds.
Convincing performance for high-end applications
Transcend's PCIe M.2 SSD 220S follows the NVMe 1.3 standard and uses the PCIe ™ Gen3 x4 interface. This simultaneously uses four lanes for sending and receiving data, was a great performance of up to 3,500MB/s for reading and 2,800MB/s for writing.
Note: Performance measurement based on CrystalDiskMark v5.0.2.
The significance of the PCIe interface
PCIe (or PCI Express®) is a much faster interface than SATA (or Serial ATA) for connecting SSDs to a host computer. It has one or more lanes, each with a serial interface for sending and receiving, and can thus meet new performance requirements much better.
The NVMe standard
NVMe (or NVM Express®) is a host controller interface standard that is tailored to the needs of enterprise and client applications that use PCI Express-based solid-state storage. NVMe requires better performance vectors than Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI), including scalable bandwidth, increased IOPS, and low latency.
3D extension for superior results
in contrast to conventional, planar NAND chips, the 3D-NAND Flash not only arranges the memory cells horizontally, but also stacks them vertically on several levels. This allows you to overcome the limitation of the memory density of 2D-NAND and at the same time achieve a higher level of performance and endurance.
Better endurance, higher reliability
Transcend's PCIe SSD 220S was developed with low-density parity check (LDPC) coding, a powerful ECC algorithm, in order to secure data in the best possible way. Manufactured with high-quality 3D NAND flash chips and a dynamic thermal throttling mechanism, the PCIe SSD 220S guarantees superior endurance and stability for high-end applications.
SSD Scope Software
transcend SSD Scope is a practical, user-friendly software, which enables the user to monitor the health status of the transcend SSD and to maintain the performance of the drive in the long term.
to ensure the highest quality transcend SSDs are rigorously tested in all production stages, including vibration, temperature and humidity tests, speed and functionality.

Solid State Drive [SSD] offers lightning speed for your PC to boot up and run applications compared to the traditional Hard disks. While your processor can handle billions of cycles per second, it spends a lot of time waiting for your drive to feed data. Hard drives are particularly sluggish because they have moving parts and platters that have to spin up. To get optimal performance, you need a good SSD. We are here to provide the knowledge you need to make an informed purchasing decision.
Here are the facts you need to take into account while purchasing a SSD:
Find out if you have slots for M.2 drives on your motherboard and room in the chassis. If not, you may need a 2.5-inch drive instead.
Make sure you trust the quality of the manufacturer if you plan to use the SSD for the long term. The quality of the manufacturer will be reflected in how the wear patterns of the SSD are managed as well as the possibility of whether or not you get a warning before your SSD dies.
Most SSDs range from 120 GB to 2 TB. 120 GB drives are the cheapest but adequately capable of handling operating system and productivity applications. It costs a little extra to step up from 120 to 250 GB but the money is well spent in terms of performance. 500GB is the sweet spot between price, performance, and capacity for most users – particularly if you don't have the budget for a 1TB model.
Remember that high-end drives, while technically faster, won’t often feel speedier than less-speedy options in common tasks.
So unless you’re chasing extreme speed for professional or enthusiast reasons, it’s often best to choose an affordable mainstream drive that has the capacity you need at a price you can afford.
