T-Force Cardea Z44Q M.2 PCIe SSD




TEAMGROUP unveils the T-FORCE CARDEA Z44Q PCIe4.0 SSD with two patented cooling modules, QLC Flash, and PCIe Gen4x4 interface that supports the latest NVMe1.4 standard and provides a massive capacity of up to 4TB. Consumers can opt for different specs based on their preference and needs, and gamers can have everything from cooling, performance, and capacity in one SSD, and explore the infinite possibilities with T-FORCE CARDEA Z44Q PCIe4.0 SSD.

Equipped with QLC Flash, the T-FORCE CARDEA Z44Q PCIe4.0 SSD supports the latest PCIe Gen4x4 interface and NVMe 1.4 standards, meaning that it is compatible with PCIe Gen3.0 interface while offering up to 4TB in capacity. The read/write speeds reach up to 5,000/4,000 MB/s [1], which are 10 times faster than traditional SSDs, making it a pioneer for the new TB M.2 era and the best choice for players in terms of cooling, speed, and capacity.

T-FORCE CARDEA Z44Q PCIe4.0 SSD is equipped with two patented cooling modules that gamers can freely interchange between. The patented high-strength aluminum heat sink (Taiwan Patent: M541645) can multiply cooling effects while the patented ultra-thin graphene heat sink (Taiwan Patent: I703921; China Patent: CN 211019739 U) has an ultra-light volume for easy assembly and low interference. Both cooling modules are effective in cooling the SSD, making it a great addition to PCIe SSD for cooling and performance.


  • Enjoy PCIe Gen4, large capacity, and fast speed all at once
  • Two types of patented heat spreaders for you to choose from
  • Effective cooling and installation is so easy

[1] This product is compatible with Intel and AMD platforms, and the performance result is tested on a motherboard that supports PCIe 4.0 interface by the T-FORCE internal laboratory. The actual speed may vary depending on the software and hardware conditions of the platform.
[2] With TEAMGROUP’s patented gaming fin type cooling module, both natural convection or forced air cooling (e.g. fan) can enhance heat dissipation. Long and rigorous test and burn-in test by the internal laboratory have proven that it can lower the temperature by up to 30℃ in open space and 10℃ in closed space, which provides more stable performance and extends the service life of the SSD.
[3] The experimental data is based on T-FORCE internal laboratory’s test result. Under the same condition, the temperature test data is according to the comparison of the non-heat spreader M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD and the T-FORCE CARDEA Z44Q Solid State Drive. The relevant test environment is simulated under a fanless environment using mask. The actual speed may vary depending on the software and hardware conditions of the platform.
[4] 1GB=1,000,000,000 Bytes. In OS system, it would be displayed as 1,000,000,000 Bytes/1024/1024/1024 = 0.93GB
[5] Definition and conditions of TBW (Terabytes Written)are based on JEDEC standard
[6] 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.
[7] The SSD is based on the TBW or Warranty period.
