SK hynix Inc. announced the launch of its “Gold S31” solid-state drive (SSD).
Gold S31 (SATA III – first generation) is the first of the company’s new SuperCore series of consumer SSDs, an internal drive lineup based on SK hynix’s core technology.
The new SSD provides users with sequential read speeds up to 560MB/s, as well as a five-year warranty. The 2.5-inch drive supports the SATA III interface based on 3D NAND Flash technology, and is now available in 1TB, 500GB and 250GB capacities on Amazon US.
All key components in Gold S31, from NAND Flash and built-in controller to DRAM and firmware, were designed and produced by SK hynix.
Gold S31 will be offered exclusively on Amazon US this year, but is expected to expand to other North American and European markets starting next year, when a PCIe version of the SSD can also be expected.
