MyDigitalSSD Announces SBX Series M.2 NVMe SSDs

MyDigitalSSD today announces the SBX-series, the consumer grade MyDigitalSSD Super Boot eXpress (SBX) PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSDs featuring the Phison E8 (PS5008-E8) controller. The follow-up to MyDigitalSSD's award-winning enterprise BPX series, SBX NVMe SSDs offer a cost-competitive upgrade option to SATA SSDs with max sequential speeds of 1.60 GB/s read and 1.30 GB/s write.

Designed with best-in-class price, performance, and endurance in mind, SBX pairs Toshiba TLC 3D NAND with NVMe technology to maximize bandwidth while lowering latency for guaranteed peak performance under heavy workloads for near-instant responsiveness when used as either a boot or storage device in Z97 / X99 / X199 / X299 / Z170 based motherboards and more.
The onboard Phison E8 controller comes packed with features to keep your data secure, including endto-end data path protection, power loss protection, secure erase, and support for APST / ASPM / L1.2 power saving modes. The E8's ground breaking design also utilizes PCI Express 3.0 x2, freeing up two PCI-e lanes while lowering power consumption, creating less heat and longer notebook battery life without effecting performance.

MyDigitalSSD SBX M.2 SSDs provide added flexibility for PC enthusiasts, gamers, and system designers thanks to a thin, single-sided 80mm (2280) form factor that conserves space for other components in thinner and lighter devices. Get even more out of today's next-gen notebooks, Ultrabooks, NUC mini PCs, All-In-Ones, desktop workstations, and servers; experience GB/s performance today with the SBX.

SBX drives are expected to begin shipping to authorized retailers in late October at the following capacities and MSRP with an industry leading 5-year limited warranty up to 800 terabytes written (TBW).
  • 128GB: $64.99
  • 256GB: $104.99
  • 512GB: $184.99
  • 1TB: TBA
MyDigitalSSD SBX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCIe Gen3 x2 NVMe SSDs will be soon be available at Amazon and Newegg.

The E8's ground breaking design also utilizes PCI Express 3.0 x2,
Hmmm, the specs says PCIe 3.0 x2, but the stickers on all of the drives say PCIe 3.0 x4. :confused:

Please explain: "sarcasm". ;p

On topic: they mislabled the drives. With that key, the drive can only have x2 wiring.

Same price as 2TB hard drive for 128GB

At least it seems that prices are stabilizing. I still can't find a sm951 256gb for less than 95€. If theese have good random access I would consider one.

The sticker is a lie. Phison E8 is only capable of PCIe 3.0 x2.

The sticker doesn't exist. The whole things is a mockup. So any typo isn't going to make it to the final product.
