Gigabyte M.2 PCIe NVMe


  • Form Factor: M.2 2280
  • Interface: PCI-Express 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3
  • Total Capacity: 256GB*
  • Sequential Read Speed : up to 1700 MB/s**
  • Sequential Write speed : up to 1100 MB/s**
  • HMB (Host Memory Buffer) supported
  • TRIM & S.M.A.R.T supported

*Note: 1GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual useable capacity may vary.
**Speeds based on internal testing. Actual performance may vary.

Host Memory Buffer (HMB)

The Host Memory Buffer (HMB) feature utilizes the DMA (Direct Memory Access) of PCI Express to allow SSDs to use some of the DRAM on PC system, instead of requiring the SSD to bring its own DRAM.

* HMB feature is only supported by Windows 10.

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:

Compatibility: 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.


Quality Matters: 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.


Price and Capacity: 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.
