If your PC, Xbox, PS4 or other gaming console is feeling like it’s slowing, you don’t have to dispair! Simply grab yourself an SSD for gaming. No need to replace your machine just yet!
SSD’s are fast becoming the integral device for modern living. From high end business people to students and everyone in between, an SSD can benefit your life.
This sharp rise to prominence has created innovation in the wafer memory sector. Led by giants like Intel and Microsoft, SSD’s are now faster, smaller, and more durable than ever before.
RAVPower joined forces with these global titans of the memory sector to create an amazing new product. Presenting UM003 – the perfect SSD for gaming!
SSD or HDD for Gaming?
You can store data any way you like whilst you game. But there are some big differences between choosing an SSD and HDD that you should be aware of!
- Size – HDD’s are huge compared to SSD’s
- Load Time – HDD’s can lag in comparison to SSD’s
- Durability – HDD’s are less durable than SSD’s
- Energy Efficiency – HDD’s are less energy efficient than SSD’s, so they give out more heat
- Price – HDD’s cost less than SSD’s
Whilst there’s no real issues with buying either, you’re going to have to work out if paying more for an SSD is worth it in the long run. With enhanced durability and portability, plus faster load times, it’s definitely an important aspect to consider!
5 Reasons You Need A UM003 SSD for Gaming
1 – It’s Amazingly Durable
Durability is important for multiple reasons. First off, you need to know that you can take your SSD anywhere with you and not have to worry about bumps or vibrations breaking the device, as you do with HDD. What’s more, getting an SSD with a piano baked anti-scratch surface means it stays with you for longer. More bang for your buck!
2 – It’s Great Inside…
With technology from giants of the tech world Intel and Microsoft, UM003 is an SSD that will pack a punch. With a supersonic read/write rate of up to 540MBps thanks to an advanced SM2258XT controller and up-to-date USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface (supporting max. 10Gbps transfer rate), your games will load unbelievable quickly.
3 – …and Out!
We’ve mentioned the piano baked surface – which also facilitates an incredible cooling performance and lowers power consumption – but have we mentioned how great it looks? Small and sleek, UM003 can fit in the palm of your hand or your pocket without an issue. Its timeless look means you can use it for years and in any situation – if you happen to need it at work one day, there will be no awkward looks!
4 – Use it With Any USB-C Device
That’s right – it’s hugely compatible. You can use it to effectively expand the storage of your PC, laptop and tablet, as well as gaming console’s. Being able to move across all these formats is a fantastic means of keeping all your files backed up without having to spend extra on different types of storage.
5 – It’s 100% Secure
Make sure that no one can play your games without your knowledge when they’re on the SSD. We’ve added optional ATA security user/password system so that you, and only you, can access the files you want kept private. What’s more, with the AES 256 bit hardware solution for data encryption you’re the only one who can read or write data to the SSD via the dedicated Management Software. Stay secure!
