As mentioned earlier, the Phoenix Blade’s Read and Write speeds maxes out at 2000MB/s, though continuous and sequential reading and writing are only rated at 1900Mb/s and 1050Mbps which is still faster than most SATA-based SSDs.

The SRP and availability date of the new G.SKILL Phoenix Blade PCIe SSD has not been disclosed as of the time of writing, but NCIX US has listed it with a USD800 or a little under thirty-six grand in our local currency. It may be a pretty steep price to pay, but this might just be a worthy upgrade to your current setup if money is no concern.

Depende rin yan kung may pera ka. Kung kulang ka sa budget nganga nalang tayo

Kung kaya ko lang bumili nyan sure ako na bibili dahil kailangan ko ang fast Read Speed sa SSD. Ngayon 550MB/s lang ang SDD pero mas maganda sana kung mas mabilis para sa Syzygy 6-men tablebase sa Chess
