Team Group Launches Industry’s First M.2 SSD with Vapor-Chamber Cooling

With the advent of high-performance computing (HPC), the demand for cooling of industrial products has skyrocketed due to increased power requirements and heat generation in demanding industrial applications and platforms. In response, Team Group adopted the VC (Vapor Chamber) liquid cooling technology, mostly for mobile devices, and introduced the industry’s first M.2 SSD VC liquid cooling technology. The VC liquid cooling tube has been redesigned from the ground up for PCIe M.2 SSD applications based on the high transfer rates and heat generation patterns of the high speed PCIe M.2 SSD. The result is a liquid-cooled PCIe M.2 SSD with excellent thermal performance that can handle high-speed operation in harsh and dynamic industrial environments.

Team Group’s N74V-M80 is an industrial VC Cooling M.2 SSD that uses proprietary liquid cooling technology (Taiwan Utility Model Patent: M626519). The specially designed VC liquid cooling tubes pump coolant to the heat zone of the PCIe M.2 SSD controller. Heat is then transferred to the aluminum heat sink with a convective design through a gas-liquid phase transition to improve thermal performance. The N74V-M80 combines the functions of heat absorption, conduction and dissipation to better transfer and regulate thermal energy.

Team Group’s TRUST industrial control technology (“T” for temperature) ensures that the PCIe M.2 SSD products maintain excellent transfer performance over a wide temperature range from -40°C (-40°F) to 85°C (185°F)). In addition, the Team Group N74V-M80 uses TLC Flash and supports the PCIe Gen3 x4 interface and NVMe 1.3 standard, with write and read speeds of up to 3,400 and 2,500 MB/s respectively, and is suitable for industrial HPC devices with sufficient installation space. It can fully meet the high-speed computing needs while keeping it cool and energy-saving.

In temperature performance testing, the N74V-M80 SSD with its VC liquid thermal module was better at maintaining efficient data writing capacity than SSDs without heat sink at 85°C ambient temperature due to a delayed delay mechanism, reducing data writing time by 75%. These features greatly improve the efficiency and stability of data read/write and extend product life, making it the perfect choice for a reliable and durable industrial-grade SSD upgrade. Team Group continuously strives to innovate in the development of various cooling technologies, so that customers can easily solve any heating problems in harsh operating environments and enjoy superior storage performance. The company will continue to create the most reliable industrial storage solutions in response to the changing landscape and needs of the industrial storage market.
