Neo Forza is a relatively young manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash memory products. The Taiwanese company was founded in 2018 as enthusiast-focused brand of Goldkey, a well-established producer of computer hardware which has focused on OEM manufacturing until recently.
Today’s review covers the Neo Forza eSports M.2 NVMe SSD, which is also known as NFP075. “eSports” is not a range of products, but the name of this specific drive. A future Gen 4 drive would be called “Esports4x4”, according to Neo Forza. Under the hood, the NFP075 is powered by a Phison PS5012-E12S controller paired with 3D TLC NAND from Chinese state-backed flash memory maker Yangtze Memory Technologies Co (YMTC)—the first YMTC flash I’ve ever reviewed! A DRAM chip from Kingston is included, too. PCI-Express 3.0 x4 is used as the host interface.
The Neo Forza eSports is available in capacities of 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB. Endurance for these models is set at 420 TBW, 890 TBW, 1350 TBW, and 1550 TBW respectively. Neo Forza provides a three-year warranty for the eSports SSD.
