Klevv Urbane U610 SSD Pictured

Here's the first picture of an Urbane 610 SSD by Klevv, in the flesh. The performance-segment SSD is built in the 2.5-inch form-factor, with SATA 6 Gb/s interface, and serves up 560 MB/s of sequential reads, with up to 530 MB/s sequential writes (480 GB and 960 GB variants) or up to 360 MB/s writes (240 GB variant). It combines Toshiba 15 nm MLC NAND flash memory, with Phison PS3110-S10 controllers.

Interesting it uses Toshiba flash instead of Hynix, it's always good to see another Phison S10 option.

SATA 3 needs to die. Seriously why there isn't yet a viable solution to replace this ancient interface?

It's good enough for mainstream and enterprise users. Fast SSDs are almost exclusively used by enthusiasts.

Not to mention it's perfect for HDDs.

I was hoping SATA-Express would take off, but it seems like ti has failed because no drive makers want to use it.

It had a lot going for it. While it did take a lot of space on the motherboard, which is a downfall for a lot of other connectors, but because it incorporated two regular SATA ports, it wasn't wasted space. It was still backwards compatible with regular SATA drives. And it was fast.
