PNY won a Red Dot Award: Product Design for the XLR8 SSD Cover with Integrated Heatsink, designed to fit the PS5™. This product was designed to replace the standard SSD cache and offers easy installation when upgrading to expanded SSD storage**.

In 2022, designers and manufacturers from 60 countries submitted products for consideration for the Red Dot Award: Product Design. 48 international members of the Red Dot jury evaluated each product, and only products that won over the experts with their exceptional design quality won a distinction. When it comes to new products, XLR8 Gaming Powered by PNY is dedicated to helping gamers get the ultimate experience by combining passion for gaming with expertly designed components.

Professor Dr Peter Zec, Founder and CEO of Red Dot, said: “In this competition year, I have been particularly struck by the exceptional creativity displayed by the award-winning products. It is truly impressive and commendable that there are still designs that can surprise us with their form and functionality. This clearly shows that design cannot be restricted or stopped by adverse circumstances. On the contrary: more and more new ideas and creations emerge, and futuristic techniques are developed. The fact that the quality of these products matches their level of innovation makes them well-deserved winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022.”

PNY’s exclusive new design integrates the SSD cover with an extruded aluminum heatsink that improves the cooling efficiency of an installed NVMe SSD*. The SSD cover and integrated heatsink work together for increased heat dissipation during intense gaming sessions, maximizing the thermal performance of your NVMe SSD upgrade. The heatsink combined with a negative pressure design provides extreme cooling performance, cooling the SSD over 40% more than without a heatsink*.
