Silicon Power Announces UD70 PCIe 3.0 M.2 SSD

The new UD70 PCIe Gen 3x4 is an all-around performer that's perfect for DIY system builders, casual gamers and video editors, and simply those who are looking to upgrade their PC. With 3D QLC NAND storage technology, the UD70 incorporates a much higher memory cell density, allowing for greater storage capacity on a smaller footprint - up to 2 TB. Plus, NVMe 1.3 support, read speeds up to 3,400 MB/s, and write speeds up to 3,000 MB/s make this M.2 2280 SSD a force to be reckoned with.

The UD70 is specially engineered with a dual self-cooling system that operates via active state power management (ASPM) and autonomous power state transition (APST). In addition, thermal throttling effectively monitors and controls the temperature to prevent sudden speed drops or damage of stored data caused by high temperature. With these advanced mechanisms in place, the UD70 will keep its cool to sustain a safe and optimal level of performance at all times, which translates to a longer and more reliable lifespan.
Features
  • PCIe Gen 3x4 interface with read speeds up to 3,400 MB/s and write speeds up to 3,000 MB/s

For the 500GB version just 45 TB TBW.
For the 1TB 100 TB TBW and 2TB version 200 TB TBW.

Even by QLC standard, the TBW is way too low to be comfortable, especially if someone want to buy a cheap 500GB nvme boot drive.

45 TBW is simply not acceptable for a new SSD in 2020, it is simply way too small.
