SX950 SSD ReviewFast and affordable flash storage is no longer difficult to find. Nowadays every custom build rig is equipped with some kind of flash SSD. It seems that the craze for NVME still going on, however, traditional SSDs are still popular as ever. Recently we reviewed ADATA SX930 SSD and came to a conclusion that it was the best bang for the buck. Shortly after ADATA released their flagship SSD, SX950. SX950 is 3D MLC based and offers great transfer speeds and performance not only for gamers but also for general computing users. SX950 comes in four different capacities (240GB / 480GB / 960GB / 1.92TB) and has a warranty of 6 years. Some of the promised features of this SSD are read/write speeds of 560/530MB/s and intelligent SLC caching and DRAM cache buffer.
