The product is called T-Force Cardea Liquid II, but it is still in the prototype stage. To take the M.2 SSD to the next level, the memory manufacturing team group added an all-in-one liquid cooling to one of their potential products. Teamgroup introduces M.2 SSD with liquid AIO cooling.
The T-Force Cardea Liquid II, which launched at Thursday’s live event, uses a “circuit water cooler” similar to the AIO desktop cooler.
“The PCIe interface is evolving rapidly, leading to higher speeds, but also more severe heating problems,” the company said when introducing the concept device, which was initially interrupted earlier this month.
In fact, many PCIe Gen 4 M.2 devices today have read/write speeds reaching a maximum of 7000 MB/s. However, the T-Force Cardea Liquid II seems poised to break the barrier, even though Teamgroup doesn’t offer any specs. “We strive for low operating noise, highly efficient fluid exchange and a smaller size,” he said.
The obvious drawback of the cooling system, however, is its ridiculous size, which makes it difficult to install. But currently Teamgroup is not ready to start components. The company says the SSD is still in the R&D phase and is seeking public feedback.
T-Force Cardea Aluminum A440 Pro
If this product is too much for you, Teamgroup has brought you another fast PCIe Gen 4.0 NVME SSD that prevents water cooling.
Instead, the T-Force Cardea Aluminum A440 Pro relies on a clear built-in cooler to support the refrigerated rack. The same cooler is designed to allow better airflow through the aluminum fins shown below.
As a result, the product promises to achieve read speeds of up to 7400 MB/s and write speeds of 7000 MB/s despite hot development. Expect the device to reduce the temperature to 52.6 degrees Celsius. However, there is no information on when the product will be launched.
During the livestream, Teamgroup also discussed a more conventional looking NVME SSD that uses a smaller ceramic heat sink to keep components cool. However, the T-Force Cardea Ceramic C440 only reaches read/write speeds of 5000/4400 MB/s. It will be available in 1TB and 2TB of storage and is now available for $139.
