MSI’s Spatium M480 is a high-end PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD that, while very fast, isn’t quite the best value, even when compared to other top-end drives. It’s best suited for builds where speed and unique looks are both important.
Although MSI is known more for its motherboards and graphics cards, the company now also offers up one of the fastest NVMe SSDs available. MSI’s Spatium M480 is a high-end PCIe 4.0 x4 drive that dishes out speeds of up to 7 GBps, while not only looking cool but keeping its cool, too. It’s a pricey SSD, but well worth your consideration if you are on the hunt for a high-end gaming SSD to complement your build’s unique aesthetics.
MSI’s Spatium M480 is the company’s fastest SSD, yet and it’s based on Phison’s fastest NVMe controller to date, the PS5018-E18. Like many other high-end gaming drives, the M480 comes in two variants: a model with a heatsink and one without. Today, we take a look at the one with the heatsink, in all of its beautiful splendor.
