GIGABYTE Introduces High-Endurance SSD for AI Applications

GIGABYTE has unveiled its AI TOP 100E series of solid-state drives (SSDs), designed specifically for handling large-scale AI models. These new SSDs are notable for their exceptional durability, capable of withstanding prolonged and intensive data writing sessions.

The GIGABYTE AI TOP 100E SSDs come in the M.2 2280 form factor with a PCIe 4.0 interface, available in 1TB and 2TB versions. They boast an impressive endurance rating of 109,500 TBW (terabytes written) for the 1TB model and 219,500 TBW for the 2TB model. For context, the 2TB model’s endurance is equivalent to approximately 17 hours of continuous data writing at 2TB per second every day for five years.

To optimize the processing of large datasets for AI models, GIGABYTE’s proprietary AI TOP utility shifts the workload from VRAM or system memory directly onto the SSD. In terms of performance, the 1TB model offers read and write speeds of 7200 MB/s and 6500 MB/s, respectively, while the 2TB model delivers read speeds of 7200 MB/s and write speeds of 5900 MB/s.

Pricing and availability details for these high-endurance SSDs will be announced at a later date.

This announcement is particularly relevant for the USA, where the demand for advanced AI hardware is rapidly growing, and high-performance storage solutions are critical for the development and deployment of AI technologies.
