Silicon Power announced the launch of four PCIe NVMe SSDs at IFA 2018 today. The P34A80 and P34M85 support PCIe Gen3 x4 while the P32A80 and P32M85 connect via PCIe Gen3 x2 lanes. The M85 models come with an added heat sink to prevent overheating during continuous activity.

Storage solutions provider Silicon Power has announced the launch of four new PCIe NVMe SSDs at IFA 2018. Two of these SSDs are compatible with PCIe Gen 3 x4 while the other two are made for PCIe Gen 3 x2. Both variants feature heatsink options to keep temperatures in check. All four SSDs are qualified for NVMe 1.2.

The Gen 3 x4 SSDs include the P34A480 and the P34M85. Silicon Power claims that they can reach speeds up to 2,700 MB/s read and 1,400 MB/s write and are can be arranged in a RAID configuration. The P34M85 comes with an added heatsink.

The P32A80 and the P32M85 are Gen 3 x2 SSDs qualified for NVMe 1.2 designed for ultrabooks. They can attain speeds up to 1,600 MB/s read and 1,000 MB/s write. Like the P34M85, the P32M85 also sports a heatsink. 

All four SSDs are available in multiple capacities as follows —

  • P34M85 Capacity: 240GB/480GB/960GB
  • P34A80 Capacity: 256GB/512GB/1TB
  • P32M85 Capacity: 120GB/240GB/480GB
  • P32A80 Capacity: 128GB/256GB/512GB

The P32A80 and P34A80 come with a 3-year warranty while a 5-year warranty is offered for the heatsink sporting P32M85 and P34M85. Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
