Addlink is a fairly young Taiwanese hardware manufacturer founded in 2014. They specialize in all products related to flash storage, like USB sticks, SD memory cards, and SSDs.
Today, we are taking a look at the Addlink S95, which is the company's new high-performance PCIe Gen 4 TLC-based SSD. The S95 is based on a combination of a Phison E18 controller paired with TLC flash from Micron. Two Hynix DRAM chips provide 2 GB of storage for the mapping tables of the SSD. This is basically the same design as the Corsair MP600 Pro, which we reviewed in February.
The Addlink S95 comes in capacities of 1 TB ($260) and 2 TB ($470). Endurance for these models is set to 700 TBW and 1400 TBW respectively. Addlink includes a five-year warranty with the S95.
