Intel SSD DC P4510 Series 2.0TB PCIe 2.5” Datacenter SSD

Intel has been making SSD’s for more than ten years now, but the average consumer is probably only familiar with them from the more recent Optane based drives. On the Enterprise side of the world, Intel is regarded as the defacto standard for reliability and performance. Some of this has spilled over into the prosumer world a few years back with the Intel 750 series drives. Today we’ll be looking at Intel’s SSD DC P4510 series drive. Designed for the rapidly growing and evolving cloud architecture, the P4510 series provides higher capacity, low latency and scalable performance for continued innovation.

Crucial P1 1000GB

Over the past few years, the popularity of M.2 drives has dramatically increased due to their small form factor, blazing speeds, and affordability. With the recent decline of prices of PCIe based SSDs, they are now making their way into many entry-level systems and not just enthusiast builds. Crucial’s new P1 line of NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD’s promises to brings both high speeds and ample storage suitable for any build. The P1 drive comes in 3 different configurations which range from 500GB to 2TB of storage with speeds up to 2000MB/s read and 1700MB/s write. With a starting MSRP of $109.99 choosing a PCIe based drive over a SATA SSD is now a much easier decision.

GIGABYTE M.2 2280 PCIe SSD 256GB

Gigabyte is one of the most well-known brands in the PC world and with that comes a certain level of brand loyalty. While Gigabyte does complete PC’s in the small form factor world, their laptops are the bread and butter of the read to run PC line up. For those that like to build, for the longest time you were limited to motherboards, and eventually video cards.  More recently we’re seen Gigabyte expand internal component offerings to power supplies, and memory, and even SATA SSD’s. Today we’ll be looking at their first jump into the NVMe market in the M.2 form factor.

Having your data on the go is nothing really new at this point, portable flash memory has been readily available since around the turn of the century. What has changed though is the size, and how long it takes to move data on and off of the drive. Carrying hundreds of gigabytes is pretty common these days, but it’s not that practical if it takes several hours to fill and nearly as long to copy back off. Patriot has something a little different in mind. Packing up to 1TB of space, the EVLVR capitalizes on the blazingly fast Thunderbolt 3 Interface.

Teamgroup T-Force Delta RGB SSD

In a world of RGB-everything, nothing is safe. Migrating colorful system lighting onto main components like motherboards and GPU’s was kind of a given and even memory. We already had RGB fans, so the jump to RGB power supplies wasn’t a huge surprise, but one of the last hold-outs has now given in to the relentless craze: the lowly SSD.  What was once a rather unassuming rectangle stuffed in a dark corner can now be a centerpiece of your brilliantly lit build thanks to Teamgroup with the new T-Force Delta RGB SSD. Is it all for show, or does it actually have something under the hood worth mentioning as well? We’ll find out!

Kingston SSDNow 960 GB Internal SSD ‑ 2.5" ‑ UV500

With all of the fanfare M.2 NVMe drives get, it’s sometimes easy to forget that SSD’s exist in other form-factors and that SATA drives are still alive and well. If you have a machine that isn’t the very latest, it’s quite possible you don’t even have M.2 support. If you work from your PC or otherwise need protection, Kingston’s UV500 series drives provide full end to end 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption for peace of mind and OPAL 2.0 support for security management solutions. If you need something smaller, the UV500 also comes in M.2 B-key (SATA) and mSATA also for speed and security in any machine.
