The new P34A60 is an affordable storage solution that doesn't skimp on performance. It's designed for novice users, DIY system builders, purpose-built system manufacturers, and simply those who are looking to upgrade their PC. But with a PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 interface, read speeds up to 2,200 MB/s, and write speeds up to 1,600 MB/s, this SSD is anything but basic.

The P34A60 supports NVMe 1.3, which demands better performance vectors than AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface), including scalable bandwidth, increased IOPS, and low latency. In addition, HMB (Host Memory Buffer) architecture, which allows the host driver to allocate system memory (RAM) for exclusive use by the SSD, results in higher efficiency. It's this teamwork that provides optimum performance.



Your Data in Good Hands
The P34A60 is engineered with LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check) coding, a powerful error correction code (ECC) algorithm, to keep data secure. Furthermore, End-To-End (E2E) data protection, to ensure that accessed and retrieved data are correct from start to finish, and a RAID engine, which provides an acceptable level of fault tolerance, work to enhance data integrity for greater reliability and stability. Are you ready to give your performance a boost?

Probably more than it’s worth, hence no price.

"If you have to ask, then you probably can't afford it" :roll: :D

But seriously, not having pricing info has been a serious issue here for quite a while, since most these types of posts are merely copying/pasting of press releases, so you might as well just google or 'Zon it.... :cry: :shadedshu:

I shall not google or 'Zon! (actually, I did google the part number, and all I got in return was a buncha shoes and a link back to TPU!

I rely on TPU!!!:lovetpu:

What is the PRICE!?!?!?!?

I just wanna TB for less than $100, and this drive seems like it will fill the sweet spot!

I presume this was a pre-release notice since it has no references to the size, density, or kind of NAND being used. (Silicon Power typically uses TLC which is good for read heavy tasks like gaming usually is.)
It was doubtful Silicon Power had released the MSRP for the P34A60 M.2 model run at the time this was written. I use past tense because I have not followed up on this myself.

NVMe alternatives currently available from Silicon Power is the P34M80 M.2.
Available at Newegg the 512GB for $63 USD, the 1TB for $119 USD, and the 2TB for $245 USD.
A few relevant details:
  • PCIe Gen3 x4 interface for read/write speeds of up to 3,400 MB/s / 2,300 MB/s
  • NVMe 1.3 support. RAID engine for enhanced data integrity
  • TLC NAND
If you need to re-write data frequently then the, 'less than $100', will be harder to find. NAND with high Max Program/Erase (PE) Cycles increases the price of the NAND exponentially.

Post Script: There are five 1TB M.2 drives currently on Newegg, 4 PCIe and 1 SATA III for just less than $100 USD. Further research on that I leave to ya'll!
