Extreme Gaming Usage with ICYNano MB861U31-1M2B
Date: 2021.10.19
As the gaming industry has gotten bigger over the past few years, many gamers seek alternatives on how they can game on the go. One of the comparable solutions, as opposed to gaming desktops, would be gaming laptops, as they have the right balance of performance while retaining mobility. However, with stock storage drives out of the box, the limitation of data storage can affect performance, as each PC game can reach up to 150GB, such as Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, Quantum Break, and so much more. With the all-new ICYNano MB861U31-1M2B provides a solution where there is no need to worry about running out of drive space. Simply pop in your M.2 drive without tools or screws needed and you are all ready to go!
Why NVMe for Gaming?
Source: Tech vs Tech
When playing high-performance games, it is only right to pair with high-performance M.2 NVMe SSDs as there are performance benefits compared to conventional SATA standards. With the new NVMe interface, data transfer speeds can reach up to 10Gbps. Sometimes when working with large video files, it takes a while for the frames to load or even navigate between frames. However, with the faster disk access time, running 4K and ultra-HD graphics becomes quick and seamless.
The Importance of Portability
Whether you are moving from one desk to another or or another system, the importance of portability matters to most power users, especially gamers. We have carefully crafted and developed a full M.2 NVMe external enclosure to support up to the enterprise 22110 M.2 SSD, so this would be the only enclosure you will ever need with any M.2 drive you have now or down the line. The ICYNano MB861U31-1M2B is perfect for mobility as it is constructed with a full metal design to help ensure your drive is fully protected and it is compact enough to conveniently slides in your pocket or backpack.
Got Multiple SSDs? No Problem!
For power users that have multiple drives that consist of different data or require frequent drive swaps, our patent-pending adjustable M.2 locker may be the most effortless solution. It provides a simple way to insert and remove your drive without any tools or screws. It supports all standardized M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs lengths including 2230 (30mm), 2242 (42mm), 2260 (60mm), 2280 (80mm), and the long 22110 (110mm).
Hot-Swappable Design
With the innovative adjustable M.2 drive locker, it changes the way how users can easily and quickly interchange their M.2 drives. Simply pop in your drive and slide the adjustable locker to secure the M.2 into place. Media professionals and power users often benefit from this feature to quickly access their stored data, especially when a large project calls for multiple drives. An alternative solution for laptop gamers with limited drive storage, large data games can be stored and accessed from different drives without physically upgrading the existing drive.
Super-Fast Performance
As mentioned previously, having the latest and fast NVMe drive can help speed up your intensive applications such as boot-up times, 4K/8K file renderings, or even game maps. With The MB861U31-1M2B , it supports the fastest transfer speed over USB 3.2 Gen 2, up to 10Gbps.
Maximum Cooling Performance
Running intensive applications such as high-intensity games or even an operating system (OS) off of the ICYNano MB861U31-1M2B should not be a problem. Understanding that the NVMe M.2 SSD can notoriously overheat or experience throttling under heavy load, the dual function large heatsink lid and included thermal pad will maintain its optimal temperature.
Professional Enclosure for Enterprise Drives
As one of the few to support the enterprise 22110 (110mm) NVMe M.2 SSD, we also cater to the IT field, media professionals who constantly use data-intensive applications such as artificial intelligence, 3D animation rendering, or even video editing. Enterprise drives offer the perfect balance of high endurance for reliability, low latency, and performance over other shorter lengths of M.2 drives.
The Bottom Line
The gaming industry is thriving more than ever but the drawback is its' game capacity has tripled over time, making it difficult to find an alternative solution to store them. With The ICYNano MB86U31-1M2B brings the balance of adding additional storage to your PC,
fast NVMe speed, and of course worried-free.
