Silicon Power Announces XD80 PCIe Gen3 M.2 SSD

Silicon Power (SP) is releasing its latest PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD, the XD80, available in massive storage capacities up to 2 TB. It is the ideal solution for performance enthusiasts building custom gaming rigs or desktops. Featuring SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer, the XD80 peels rubber with blazing read/write speeds up to 3,400/3,000 MB/s, respectively. Its high-speed PCIe Gen3 x4 interface leaves traditional SATA III SSDs behind in the dust, giving hardcore gamers the competitive edge they need to secure the win.

With NVMe 1.3 support, the XD80 delivers higher performance, lower latency, and lower power consumption for the smoothest gameplay without any lag. The durable aluminium heatsink provides maximum heat dissipation and thermal management. In fact, compared to SSDs without a heatsink, the XD80 keeps temperatures as much as 20% lower, maintaining its stability.

Whoever approved that graphic in a press release should be fired. No sane company would want their product to look like it's crashing and burning.

These press releases are really funny to read, especially when this "leader" of industry is pushing a 3.0x4 drive two years after 4.0 drives hit the scene, and drives like the rocket 4 plus are twice as fast as this drive is, and come in 4TB TLC and 8TB QLC capacities.
