Crew announced the launch of a new industrial-grade SSD, we are talking about the N74V-M80who boasts of using a steam room for cooling. baptized as CV cooling (Vapor Chamber Cooling), the company uses proprietary refrigeration technology supported a utility patent which can even be seen printed on the cooling system.
It should be remembered that these types of cooling systems would be like a “liquid refrigeration“Passive, where we have channels with a coolant which, when heated, starts a moving circuit which reaches its maximum temperature in the area where the heat is generated and then evaporates, condensing in the dissipation area , and return to liquid state thus closing what would be a passive cooling circuit.
For this cooling, on the steam chamber we have an aluminum radiator through channels where the air from the system fans will pass to remove the heat.
Interestingly, the N74V-M80 Team Group It’s not that this is a high-performance SSD, as we’re dealing with an M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 unit with TLC NAND Flash memory that reaches maximum read speeds of up to 3400 MB/s while writing reaches 2500 MB/s.
As for the temperature improvements, it’s not that there’s much to point out, and it’s that they only indicated that their steam room, under an ambient temperature of 85ºC, allowed its SSD to experience the least performance degradation, delivering 75% more performance in write speed. Now, in a normal environment, it remains to be seen if he is able to offer any improvement. Without forgetting that the SSD which was used for the comparison he didn’t even use a cooling system.
This model will only be available in capacities of 128, 256 and 512 GBhas a 3-year warranty and its introductory price has not been announced.
