SK hynix is announcing the release of the SK hynix Gold P31 PCIe SSD. This new offering from SK hynix represents the world’s first 128-layer NAND flash-based consumer SSD. It is also SK hynix’s first consumer SSD launched in the US under the SK hynix brand.
The Gold P31 is useful to all PC users, and is geared toward gamers, content creators and designers. The Gold P31 supports the PCIe NVMe interface based on 4D NAND flash technology, and is being offered in capacities of 500GB and 1TB.
The SSD market is rapidly transitioning to the PCIe NVMe interface, and SK hynix’ Gold P31 reinforces their position as an established leader in supplying PCIe NVMe products to global PC OEMs. This newest SSD is one of the fastest and most innovative consumer SSDs available, and features the latest technologies from SK hynix.
The Gold P31 provides best-in-class sequential read speeds of up to 3500 MB/s, and sequential write speeds of up to 3200 MB/s. This drive is ideal for gamers and their long hours of play, and provides the essential performance and stability sought by content creators and designers. The Gold P31 has withstood 1000 hours of testing and validation, resulting in a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 1.5 million hours. This allows SK hynix to back the Gold P31 with a five-year warranty.
SK hynix is a leading manufacturer of memory chips, and supplies their own DRAM chips and NAND flash memory, as well as the internal SSD controllers. The Gold P31 PCIe SSD follows on the heels of the Gold S31 SATA SSDs of last year, which also offered best-in-class speed and reliability. The Gold P31 is poised to become a significant presence in the ever-growing PC market.
