MSI Shows off SPATIUM Vapor Chamber SSD at Computex

MSI always has some interesting M.2 cooling solutions. Earlier this year at CES we saw their SPATIUM M580 PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 FROZR LIQUID which essentially was an AiO or closed-loop liquid cooler. Well at Computex they are showing off a vapor chamber cooler made for M.2 SSDs.

According to TechPowerUp MSI is claiming this as a worlds first, which makes used of “a two-phase flow transition of gas and liquid with minimal signal interference, ensuring rapid and silent heat exchange.” The prototype that was being shown had a non-metal chamber and it is unclear if this is the final design, but it does offer a look at what is going on inside. MSI has said this thermal solution should provide up to 11 degrees cooling operating temperatures compared to a standard aluminum heatsink.

No word yet on which specific drive from MSI will make use of this cooler. It could be the new SPATIUM M560 PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 SSD that makes use of the Phison 7nm E31T controller and Kioxia 8th generation 218-layer BiCS 3D TLC NAND. This drive was also being shown off at CES and will offer transfer speeds of up to 10,000 MB/s. This new controller brings with it a 15% reduction in power consumption as well. MSI will initially offer this drive in 1TB and 2TB capacities.
