Almost a year ago now we were invited by Zotac to celebrate their 10th Anniversary and tour their factory. With the celebration they announced a few “10th Anniversary” products, one of which was the new 10 Year Anniversary Sonix 480GB PCI-Express solid state drive. The new drive boosted speeds of the drive (via firmware update) by up to 10%, changed the shroud from silver to black, and added RGB lighting to the Zotac logo on the back of the drive. When thinking about parts for our upcoming RGB build we thought this product would fit right in so Zotac sent it over for us to take a look at. Does it compete with other current PCI-Express NVMe solid state drives out there? Read on as we find out!
Special thanks to Zotac for providing us with the 10 Year Anniversary Sonix 480GB PCIe Solid State Drive to review.
The 10 Year Anniversary Sonix 480GB PCIe Solid State Drive comes in a nice retail box. On the front it has a picture of the drive and lets us know the rated speeds which are 2800 MB/s read and 1500 MB/s write. We are also told the capacity, which is 480GB, which is currently the only capacity offered by Zotac.
Flipping over to the back there is not much, but it does let us know what all comes in the box.
Getting everything out of the box we have the Sonix drive, low-profile mounting bracket, two stickers, and a quick start guide.
