The Gold P31 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD in particular was the world's first consumer SSD with 128-layer NAND when it launched just over a month ago. Its $110 sale price will net users 3500 MB/s read and 3200 MB/s write speeds instead of the slower PCI x2 speeds commonly found in this price range.
Allen Ngo,

SK Hynix isn't a new name in the world of storage or RAM, but the South Korean company only recently launched its lineup of affordable consumer-based SSDs in the United States. Called the Gold S31 and Gold P31 series, these SATA III and NVMe SSDs would offer high performance-per-value relative to popular brands like Western Digital or Samsung.

With Amazon Prime Day rolling along next week, SK Hynix will be temporarily cutting prices across the board for noticeable savings. The 1 TB Gold P31 NVMe SSD, for example, will retail for just $108 USD compared to $168 USD for the 1 TB Samsung 970 EVO. These unfortunately won't be compatible with your PS5, but PC builders or laptop owners should definitely consider looking into them.

The Prime Day prices will only apply from October 13 to 14. We fully expect various other manufacturers to hold similar sales next week as well.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
