SK hynix Gold P31 1TB NVMe SSD Review – Worlds 1st 128-Layer SSD Performs at an Amazing Price


The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.


TxBench is one of our newly discovered benchmarks that we works much the same as Crystal Diskmark, but with several other features.  Advanced load benchmarking can be configured, as well as full drive information and data erasing via secure erase, enhanced secure erase, TRIM and overwriting.  Simply click on the title for a free copy.



The SSD Review uses PCMark 8’s Storage test suite to create testing scenarios that might be used in the typical user experience. With 10 traces recorded from Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and a selection of popular games, it covers some of the most popular light to heavy workloads. Unlike synthetic storage tests, the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark highlights real-world performance differences between storage devices. After an initial break-in cycle and three rounds of the testing, we are given a file score and bandwidth amount. The higher the score/bandwidth, the better the drive performs.


The SK hynix Gold P31 provides excellent PCMark 8 Test Results, right up there with the best. Top 10!

    Just gone one yesterday to replace the OEM 256GB hynix SSD that came with my desktop.

    MUCH cooler, MUCH faster, especially on writes and what a bargain price for the performance, lifespan, excellent write perf, and its cool. The old drive would hit 60-80C, this is barely warm.

    Price this against a 970 or 8200 pro or black SN750 with a heatsink (you’ll want one with those, they run MUCH warmer!) and see what a bargain this is.

      Yes it took them a bit to enter the retail market but i think they will do very well. Many are unaware that they have been commonplace in many laptops for some time.
