The Transcend MTE820 M.2 SSD utilizes the PCI Express Gen3 x4 interface supported by the latest NVMe standard, to unleash next-generation performance. The MTE820 M.2 SSD aims at high-end applications, such as digital audio/video production, gaming, and enterprise use, which require constant processing heavy workloads with no system lags or slowdowns of any kind. Powered by 3D TLC NAND flash memory, the MTE820 M.2 SSD gives you not only fast transfer speeds but unmatched reliability.
Compelling performance for high-end applications
Transcend's MTE820 M.2 SSD follows NVMe 1.2 and utilizes the PCIe™ Gen3 x4 interface, meaning four lanes are used for transmitting and receiving data simultaneously, resulting in compelling performance of up to 1,370MB/s read and 830MB/s write.
Understanding the PCIe interface
PCIe (or PCI Express®) is a much faster interface than SATA (or Serial ATA) for connecting a host computer to solid-state storage devices over one or more lanes consisting of one transmit and one receive serial interface in each lane, meaning it can better fulfill new performance requirements.
Understanding the NVMe standard
NVMe (or NVM Express®) is a host controller interface standard designed to address the needs of enterprise and client applications that utilize PCI Express-based solid-state storage. NVMe calls for better performance vectors than AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface), including scalable bandwidth, increased IOPS, and low latency.
