Adata is a company that has achieved popularity around the world. SSDs, RAMs, DRAMs and a whole host of other technological devices. So, is it completely flawless? Never. There are also bad incidents such as SSDs with chronic problems and products sent for review being different from those sold to users. But, will this new Legend series help Adata or will it turn into one of the flaws we're talking about now? Let's see!
First, our product has a beautiful box. The orange writings on the blue look nice. There are information about SSD and information articles for some countries around it. Here is the normal product box. No need to extend.
When we open the box, we are greeted by the product and its blue cooler.
The metal cooler looks good. It is nice that it was sent in a product that we can say for a low budget.
On the back, there is a label with some information about the product.
There is no information on the internet about this. It's really sad. The fact that companies do not share proper technical details about their products harms both themselves and the customer. Well, it's time to learn.
The control inside is Silicon Motion's SMI2263XT model. This controller, produced entirely for nVME SSDs, has PCIe 3.0 support. The controller, which has dual core, 4 channels and chip support, does not have DRAM support. However, it has HMB support instead. HBM may be confused with HMB, maybe you mixed it up or you said "what are these". If I had to explain, the technology we call HMB is actually used for caching. When writing data on SSDs, when there is a huge amount of data, the SSD gets clogged, and the huge high speeds that fascinate us turn into a hard drive inside a 10-year-old computer. Because SSD can't keep up. That's why technologies such as DRAM and SRAM have appeared in SSDs. They help the SSD's chips by holding large amounts of data and prevent serious speed drop. It also greatly contributes to the health and lifespan of the SSD. However, it is somewhat expensive. That's why the technology we call HMB emerges. This allows DRAM to take over the normal RAMs in our computer. They already have similar names, right? DRAM, RAM. 😃
We can't call the controller very good in general. Technically weak. what about NAND chips? I couldnt find it. But I hope they didn't use a poor quality chip. It will work fine if there are at least 64 layer NAND chips. Placing 4 units is a good thing. Because the more it is, the more efficient it will be in general.
If we make a general assessment. Factors such as being a new model, having a cooler and design are very nice. However, when we get down to the technical details, we encounter the unsuccessful parts. The controller is, to be frank, inadequate. Their speed is slow for an average M.2 SSD, and we're not sure how good the NAND chips will be. On top of that, the fact that it has never been properly advertised on the internet shows that Adata does not care about this SSD. Technically, they show 710, not 700, even in advertising promotions. 700 have only images. Although it varies according to the region in terms of price, I think it is not preferable if it has a better competitor. We can see how the products that have been on the market for a long time and have a large user base perform in terms of causing problems.
