PRECAUTIONS[1] Transmission speed will vary according to different hardware/software conditions, therefore the data can only used for basic reference.[2] 1GB=1,000,000,000 Bytes. In OS system, it would be displayed as 1,000,000,000 Bytes/1024/1024/1024 = 0.93GB[3] Definition and conditions of TBW (Terabytes Written)are based on JEDEC standard[4] PCIe SSD works best under WIN8.1 and WIN10 operating system. Windows Operating Systems earlier than Windows 8.1 does not support NVMe Driver natively. Users will need to install NVMe Driver prior installing the SSD.

First M.2 SSD with ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance certification

First M.2 SSD with ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance certification

For the first time, T-FORCE and ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance join forces together and launch a M.2 PCIe SSD which is certified and rigorously tested by ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance. The exterior is designed with the unique TUF Gaming style, adding a new weapon to your TUF military camouflage PC!

Gaming style cooling fin for best temperature control

Gaming style cooling fin for best temperature control


CARDEA II TUF Gaming Alliance SSD uses TEAMGROUP’s patented gaming cooling fin which allows natural convection or forced air cooling (e.g. fan) to enhance heat dissipation. Users don’t ever have to worry about speed dropping caused by high temperatures at full speed operation.


Fully upgraded, extreme performance

Fully upgraded, extreme performance


The first co-branded M.2 SSD launched by T-FORCE x ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance uses PCIe Gen3x4 high-speed interface and supports NVMe 1.3 protocol. The outstanding performance of sequential read/write speed is up to 3400/3000 MB/s, and the random read/write speed is up to 450K/400K IOPS. The transfer time can be effectively reduced no matter if you are playing games, multimedia files or drawing graphics.


Smart algorithm for prolonging the service life

Smart algorithm for prolonging the service life


The built-in smart algorithm management mechanism has functions such as the garbage collection function which can ensure operation efficiency, the powerful Wear-Leveling technology and ECC (Error Correction Code) function improve the reliability of data transfer. It supports Windows TRIM optimization command which can release free blocks, allowing the operating system to use them immediately when writing data. The optimized access control technology of NCQ can speed up the read and write performance, and effectively prolong the service life of the solid state drive.




T-FORCE is TEAM force. The red “T” on the logo of “TF” represents TEAMGROUP’s passion for the storage products. The black “F” represents TEAMGROUP’s over 18 years of promotion of storage products. The visual design of the perfect combination elegantly symbolizes a pair of flying wings. They represent that the high quality and extreme performance gaming products from TEAMGROUP are capable of allowing all gamers to break the speed limit and enjoy the ever-changing world of gaming.
