World First PCIe 4.0x4 Controller
The World's First PCIe 4.0x4 Controller, PHISON PS5016-E16 controller, made by 28nm manufacturing technology. The advanced fabrication process ensures PS5016-E16 has enough compute power for ECC processing when adopting the latest 3D TLC NAND flash. PS5016-E16 also features eight NAND channels with 32 CE targets, DDR4 DRAM caching, and a PCIe 4.0x4 interface. As for features, the chip supports the NVMe 1.3 protocol, LDPC error correction, Wear Leveling, and Over-Provision technologies to improve reliability and durability of SSDs.
NAND Flash Selected for High Quality and Performance
Selected 96 Layers 3D TLC NAND Flash (800MT/s)
Selected NAND Flash optimizes circuitry and architecture by increasing to 96 layers for higher storage space per unit area. 800MT/s throughput on the AORUS NVMe Gen 4 SSD far exceeds that of PCIe 3.0x4 devices for superior storage performance.

Advanced Thermal Solution for Gen4 SSD
The thermal design is exclusively for high end Gen4 SSDs with its smart active and passive cooling. It prevents SSDs from thermal throttling and ensures stable operating. The working temperature is 30%* lower with the armor, copper heatsink and reactive fan. * Performance is based on internal testing results. It may vary with different configuration.
Thermal Solution Designed for Gen4 SSD
Conducted Airflow and Pure Copper Heatsink
A large all copper heatsink touches the SSD's hottest controller and transfers heat to the multi-cut copper heatsink. The blower fan helps to draw heat away more quickly, preventing thermal throttling on the SSD to maintain amazing speeds at all times.
Temperature Sensor and Fan Profile
  1. Built in with 8 temperature sensors to real time monitor AORUS Gen4 AIC 2TB SSD working temperature.
  2. In AORUS Storage Manager, it provides 3 fan operating modes for user to choose base on hardware configuration and workload. In the meantime, minimize fan noise and extend the fan's longevity. Silent, the quiet one, Balanced and full speed Performance modes.
Why is keeping an SSDs at lower temperatures so important?
* Higher working temperature may cause data loss. The degradation factor of data loss could be a hundred times higher.
* With Full Body Copper Heat Spreaders, the AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD can operate at lower working temperatures to improve data storage reliability. Furthermore, SSDs can deliver extreme performance for longer periods.
AORUS Storage Manager
AORUS Storage Manager is a dedicated software to detect and monitor multiple SSD status such as how many SSD is detected, enable Software RAID0 with a single click and select different fan mode base on different hardware configurations.

SSD Tool Box
The newly updated SSD Tool Box is a software that gives users an overview of the SSD Status and various aspects such as model name, FW version, health condition and sensor temperature. Moreover, users can clear all the data with the Secure Erase function. You can download the SSD Tool Box from the link.
