ASUS details their high-end ROG Strix SQ7 NVMe SSD

ASUS has just listed their new ROG Strix SQ7 SSD on their website, detailing the specifications of their high-end 1TB SSD. The ROG Strix SQ7 is a PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD that fits within the standard 2280 SD form factor, offering users sequential read speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 6,000 MB/s. 

ASUS' SQ7 name appears to come from the SSD's sequential read speeds, with SQ7 lining up perfectly with the drive's stated sequential read speeds. It is likely that future ASUS NVMe SSDs will utilise with SQ name, with future PCIe 5.0 SSDs likely offering makes like the SQ13, or SQ14 when sequential read speeds of 13,000 MB/s or 14,000 MB/s can be delivered. 

The ROGT Strix SQ7 is a M.2 NVMe SSD that is based on Phison's E18 SSD controller, which is already uses in high-end SSDs from companies like Corsair, Sabrent, Kingston, MSI, and Gigabyte. Based on the image below, ASUS appears to be using Micron's 176-layer 3D TLC NAND with their ROG Strix SQ7 SSD, and are pairing the drive with a DDR4 memory buffer.

That was the final piece of the jigsaw? You can build yourself an Asus PC from scratch now with exception of memory and cpu. Case, fans, cooling, psu, motherboard, gpu, storage, display, keyboard, mouse and headset.Quote

Will be interesting to see how long it last's, I know it's basically made by another company but Asus and "Long Life" do not go well in the same sentence from my experience.

I still only have 1 Asus product that is working and that is a old P8P67 Pro motherboard with a 2700k in it, everything I have that is newer than that has died most often within a month or two of the warranty running out.Quote

I don't know if ASUS products are statistically more likely to break than any other company. Everyone has at least one horror story out there. Countless people say things like, 'I'd never buy an ASUS motherboard ever again.' Or, 'I wouldn't touch a Gigabyte GPU with a 10 foot barge poll.' Eventually you'd run out of companies if you listened to all the horror stories. It's more likely coincidental that you've had poor products from one specific or multiple companies. Maybe ASUS have lower tolerances, but I've never seen a study or statistic showing that; just random anecdotes that we all have for every company.Quote
