MODERATOR
The SX8200 Pro M.2 2280 SSD is XPG’s fastest SSD to date and is designed for avid PC enthusiasts, gamers, and overclockers. It features an ultra-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface that offers sustained peak read/write speeds of 3500/3000MB per second, outpacing SATA 6Gb/s by a wide margin. Supporting NVMe 1.3, the SX8200 Pro delivers excellent random read/write performance and multi-tasking capabilities. With SLC caching, a DRAM Cache buffer, E2E Data Protection, and LDPC ECC, it maintains high speeds and data integrity, even during highly intensive applications such as gaming rendering, and overclocking.

In Pursuit of Higher Performance

With intelligent SLC caching and a DRAM cache buffer, the SX8200 Pro can accelerate sequential and 4K random read/write speeds to shorten system response time, making it especially suitable for multimedia editing and gaming.

3D NAND Flash - Higher Capacity, Efficiency, and Reliability

Built with 3D NAND Flash the SX8200 Pro comes in capacities of up to 2TB, offers higher efficiency, and is more reliable than 2D SSDs. Thanks to the support of data protection technologies, it also features a high TBW and excellent durability to meet the demands of various applications.

LDPC ECC Ensures Data Integrity

The SX8200 Pro supports LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors for more accurate data transfers and a longer SSD lifespan.

E2E Data Protection and RAID Engine

Supporting E2E (End-to-End) Data Protection and RAID Engine, the SX8200 Pro ensures data safety, integrity, and delivers an extended lifespan.

Backed by a 5-Year Warranty

Every component on the SX8200 Pro has passed meticulous screening, testing, and certification. What’s more, it comes backed by a 5-year warranty.


Main Features

Just in keep in mind these speeds are only until the SLC cache runs out and after that it slows down significantly, not to a crawl like the trashy QLC 660p but there's still a difference.

The SLC cache on the 1TB model is around 150GB so it reasons to stand that the 500GB model has about 75GB cache.

Unlike the Sabrent Rocket which is basically a rebranded Corsair MP510 that uses Toshiba NAND and Phison E12 but with a newer firmware, the SX8200 uses SM2262EN with Micron's NAND and in tests it shows worse latency and slower SLC cache but better sustained R/W. So for smaller files the Sabrent Rocket is faster meaning it's better for most people BUT at the same time for most people the difference is rather miniscule between it and the SX8200 Pro and still way faster than SATA drives.

So basically get whichever is cheaper and the difference right now is about £4 in Sabrent's favour.

Not that simple. Some laptops have a SATA only m.2 slot. It must be correctly keyed, and be NVMe comatible. Ideally with PCIE x4, or you won't get the full performance.

Exceedingly good price

Exceedingly good price


Yes, been after one of these and seen this. Had a Google and look around and can't find a better price. It's also meant to be one of the fastest SSDs.
how fast do these really go ?

im assuming 3500MB/s read 2300MB/s write is not really achievable with the other components bottlenecking
I'm not bad with technology, but don't really get this, can this be added to laptop?

This is just sequential read and write, you want to look at random for real world numbers. Plus it depends on your CPU & motherboard and how many PCI lanes it supports.

Depends where the data is coming from, or going to, really. Sequential reads/writes should achieve this, but you won't often be doing that, especially since typically you would not defragment a modern SSD, reducing likelihood of sequential reads/writes.

Sorry but i think you are talking about a different drive. This has never been below £120 in the last 6 months for the 1tb.

This is about the same price as a sabrent drive, imo it's much better going for the sabrent. I had an A-data drive and it was terrible, the sabrents get reviewed quite well.

I am by no means saying this is a bad deal or bad product, but do some research as the sabrent rocket is around this price

Have the Sabrent myself and extremely happy with it. It can achieve up to 3450 MB/s (read) and 3000 MB/s (write). So overall quicker than this one.
Already have one... Tempting to buy another just for the hell of it!
I have a hp omen laptop model 17-an013na
Would this drive work in this laptop ?
I got one of these for my new build a few months back on a x570 board and the speeds were amazing (3500/2100) until I started putting games onto it (2500/2000) Still absolutely lightning fast and nothing really to moan about, but it's a fair drop from fresh out the box and it only being at 50%

Windows install took about 7-8 minutes. Defo still worth a punt if you have any spare M2 slots. I paid 90
Hey everyone, I’m running a Ryzen 2600x, Vega 56, 16ddr43000 on a ROG b450 f-strix mobo.
im just using a standard Kingston ssd that came with it and have both operating system and a few games on.

would this make a big difference gaming wise?

Yes, just make sure you move windows to the NVMe to see the benefits. And if you haven't got 16Gb DDR4 memory (2 modules available), then you might add that too whilst you're at it. Page 45 of the Maintenance and Service Guide here.

Straight transfer 'copy' won't work. You'd need to download a program that will do it for you. Or back it all up and do a fresh install.

It all depends on your software you have as well. That's upto and they are the wrong speeds. You have to compare 512gb to a 512gb not 512gb to a 1tb.
38675838-ZXwAO.jpg
this is the Adata.
38675838-KBvWg.jpg
38675838-lTgbk.jpg
this is the rocket.

Everyone has different speeds, depending on software and how much stuff they got on it. In some reviews on Amazon the rocket wins but some the adata wins. The adata when searching fastest ssd comes up but the rocket doesn't. Don't know why but that's what I go off. Again, I'm not massive with computers but I just read whats on pc test sites etc.

Sequential reads/writes should achieve this, but you won't often be doing that, especially since typically you would not defragment a modern SSD, reducing likelihood of sequential reads/writes.



Correct to an extent, data, normally either goes to either memory, cpu or pcie(slots(ie gpu), ethernet m.2, u.2 etc). M.2 can be directly wired to the cpu or via the chipset (direct to cpu is preferred). The destination can be the bottleneck, or the ssd itself can be the bottleneck.

Regarding computer bottlenecks, they will always exist somewhere in the design (to reduce cost and complexity)
Edited by: "taras" 16th Oct 2019
I have one of these and a 480GB non-pro model. They are noticeably faster than the Samsung 850 EVO SATA I had before it when it comes to boot times, updates etc. I didn't bother with the included heat-sticker because the bare black PCB looks great on a black motherboard.

Highly recommended.
