Gigabyte UD Pro 512GB Solid State Drive Review

Gigabyte has been expanding their portfolio of products this year. With their high-end gaming brand AORUS they introduced both DDR4 memory and power supplies. Under the main brand they are releasing their first solid state drive, the UD Pro. With this move it seems Gigabyte pretty much makes everything you need to build a system besides the CPU of course. The UD Pro drive is powered by the Phison S10 controller and Toshiba 64-layer TLC NAND. It boats sequential read and write speeds of 530 MB/s and 500 MB/s respectively. Let's take a look at this drive and see what it can do!

Toshiba OCZ RC100 240GB Solid State Drive Review

When you think about NVMe solid state drives you typically think of high performance, high cost drives. Well Toshiba has a new class of NVMe drives in their OCZ RC100 series drives that will help bring NVMe drives into the mainstream. These new affordable NVMe drives have a DRAM-less design, but make use of Host Memory Buffer (HMB) which accesses the system DRAM for its own caching space. The drives also make use of a PCIe Gen 3 x2 interface (whereas most NVMe drives use an x4 interface). With that you have sequential read and write speeds of 1600 MB/s and 1050 MB/s respectively. While this speed is not on the level of high-end NVMe drives it is definitely faster than a normal SATA-based solid state drives and much, much faster than a traditional hard drive. Can this be the drive to bring NVMe speeds to the mainstream? Read on as we find out!

Patriot EVLVR Thunderbolt 3 Portable Solid State Drive Review

This past year we saw the introduction of many USB 3.1 solid state drives. These became extremely popular and are great for portable game drives, video and photo editing drives, and more because of their size and speed. This year we are going to see the introduction of many Thunderbolt 3 portable solid state drives. This gives you the ability to take advantage of the 40Gbps speed of Thunderbolt 3, which is three times faster than USB 3.1 (10Gbps). Patriot was one of the first to announce a Thunderbolt 3 portable solid state drive in their EVLVR. Today we are checking out the 1TB version of the drive, which boasts speeds of 1600 MB/s read and 1000 MB/s write. Let's take a look at this drive and see if it sets a new standard for portable solid state drives.

Mushkin Source 500GB Solid State Drive Review

Solid State drive pricing keeps on getting lower and lower, but we still see 2.5-inch drives distinguished into three segments, entry-level, mainstream, and high performance. New entry-level drives more than likely do not have a DRAM chip for caching. That is the case with the Mushkin Source, which sits at the bottom of Mushkin's solid state drive product stack. This drive is powered by the Silicon Motion SM2258XT controller teamed with Micron 3D TLC NAND. Mushkin tells us this combination boats sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 520 MB/s respectively. The 500GB version we are checking out today <a href="https://amzn.to/2Ln5tfR" rel="noopener" target="_blank">sells for only $89.99</a>! Let's jump in and see what it can do!

ADATA XPG SX8200 480GB M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive Review

We took a look at ADATA's first NVMe solid state drive the XPG SX8000 back in early 2017. Needless to say it was not the best NVMe drive we tested at the time. Well today we have one of their newest drives the XPG SX8200. It makes use of Silicon Motion's SM2262 controller paired with Micron's 64-layer 3D TLC NAND. It seems like ADATA has got things right with this drive as both the controller and the NAND are some of the best currently available. ADATA puts specifications of this drive at 3200 MB/s read and 1700 MB/s write, so it is definitely an improvement over the previous generation. The drive is also backed by a 5-year warranty. Let's put this drive to the test and see what it can do!
