Team Group is a well-known Taiwanese hardware manufacturer with a long history of catering to the needs of enthusiasts and gamers from all over the globe. Their lineup includes DRAM memory and solid-state drives, and they also offer various memory cards and USB thumb drives.
Today’s review covers the Team Group T-Force Cardea IOPS, which is powered by a Phison PS5012-E12S controller paired with 3D TLC NAND from Toshiba and DRAM from Kingston. PCI-Express 3.0 x4 is used as the host interface. The highlight of the Cardea IOPS is that it can operate in three cooling configurations: no heatsink (the default), a thin graphene heatspreader, or a large metal heatsink—the choice is yours.
The Team Group Cardea IOPS is only available in a 1 TB configuration with an endurance of 1665 TBW. Team Group provides a five-year warranty for the Cardea IOPS.
