Team Group Shows Self-Contained Cardea Liquid M.2 SSD

Team Group had a very interesting product in their T-Force Cardea Liquid M.2 PCI-Express NVMe solid state drive at Computex. The product has actually won a Computex d&i award this year. It is basically an M.2 drive with a block on top of it with coolant inside.

Now you would think you would connect this drive to your own custom loop, but the block is fully enclosed and Team Group says it uses “self-circulation” which is said to keep the drive 10 degrees cooler than normal. The block or heatspreader is actually refillable so you can use the same coolant you would in your normal loop so everything matches up in your build.

The drive will be available in capacities ranging from 256 GB to 1TB and will offer read and write speeds of 3400 MB/s and 3000 MB/s respectively.
