Team Group Joins PCIe 4.0 SSD Race with Cardea Zero Z440 Drives

The rollout of AMD’s PCIe 4.0 Ryzen platform has accelerated releases of PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD drives. Team Group this week introduced its versions of SSDs based on Phison’s PS5019-E16 controller. Interestingly, unlike competing drives using the same chip from other makers, Team Group’s T-Force Cardea Zero Z440 do not feature an aluminum heat spreader, but relies on a different cooling system.

Set to ship in 1 TB and 2 TB configurations, Team Group’s M.2-2280 T-Force Cardea Zero Z440 SSDs use 3D TLC NAND. As far as performance is concerned, the drives promise up to 5000 MB/s sequential read speeds, up to 4400 MB/s sequential write speeds, as well an 750K peak read/write random IOPS, which is in line with competitors.

Unlike most of drives featuring the Phison PS5019-E16 controller, Team Group’s T-Force Cardea Zero Z440 SSDs does not use a massive aluminum heat spreader, but comes with a graphene copper foil heat dissipation module that is only 1 mm thick. The use of a very thin cooler makes the drive compatible with upcoming laptops featuring a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface that will be available in the future. Meanwhile, according to Team Group, the graphene copper foil heat dissipation sticker reduces controller’s temperature from 61.8°C to 56.5°C when compared to the lack of any heat spreader.

As far as endurance and reliability levels are concerned, Team Group’s T-Force Cardea Zero Z440 SSDs are rated for up to 1800 or 3600 TB written over a five-year warranty period, depending on the drive's capacity.
