TEAMGROUP (we recently reviewed one of their NVMe drives — the CARDEA A440) has announced two more drives in their new T-CREATE CLASSIC C4 Series. A PCIe 4.0 NVMe drive, this newest one (much like the CARDEA A440) comes with a graphene heatsink and is aimed at the creator’s market with three tiers of performance. The C43 is specced for 3000 MB/s, the C45 is built for 5000 MB/s, and the C47 has a maximum read speed of 7000 MB/s. In our testing of the A440, we found this trademark graphene strip to be highly successful, dissipating heat rapidly and keeping thermal throttling at bay for large and sustained reads and writes. Head mitigation and stability are more important than anything when processing complex and large workloads like graphic and video editing, so these should be a good addition to their lineup.
Here’s a snippet from their announcement press release:
The T-CREATE CLASSIC C4 Series PCIe 4.0 SSD offers three different models: C47, C45, and C43, providing three different speed specifications, with a maximum reading speed of 7000MB/s, 5000MB/s, and 3000MB/s, and capacities ranging from 512GB to 4TB. With multiple speeds, it allows creators to freely choose to meet their creative needs. The T-CREATE CLASSIC C4 Series PCIe 4.0 SSD is equipped with the ultra-thin graphene patented heat-sink label (US invention patent: US 110,513,92 B2; Taiwan invention patent: I703921), enabling the SSD to achieve high performance while effectively stabilizing system operation by mitigating heat-related concerns. Supporting the SLC Caching technology and employing a customized high-stability controller and firmware, with intelligent algorithms and a high-rate LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check) debugging mechanism, the SSD improves the efficiency of data operations by taking into account the security and integrity of data transmission, thereby enhancing the reliability of the creation process.
We’ll be taking a closer look at the MP44 lineup in our own testing in the near future, so stay tuned for our full review in the near future. In the meantime, you can pick up the drives in the following configurations at Amazon as of today!
