Silicon Power P34A60 PCIe 3x4 M.2 2280 1TB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2020-05-01

As expected, the 1TB version of the P34A60 mainstream SSD from Silicon Power does trade punches with its 512GB counterpart and in some cases, it even succeeds to keep performance steady for longer thanks to the included SLC cache. When writing to the drive continuously or copying very large files, the cache will eventually fill up, but the speed won’t drop under 108MB/s, as we have noticed by running the HD Tune Pro write benchmark.

Product Features

A Fundamental PCIe Gen3x4 That Goes Further


The P34A60 is an affordable storage solution that doesn't skimp on performance. It's designed for novice users, DIY system builders, purpose-built system manufacturers, and simply those who are looking to upgrade their PC. But with a PCIe Gen3x4 interface, which means four lanes are used for transmitting and receiving data simultaneously, read speeds up to 2,200 MB/s, and write speeds up to 1,600 MB/s, this SSD is anything but basic.


NVMe 1.3 + HMB = Optimum Performance


The P34A60 supports NVMe 1.3, which demands better performance vectors than AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface), including scalable bandwidth, increased IOPS, and low latency. In addition, HMB (Host Memory Buffer) architecture, which allows the host driver to allocate system memory (RAM) for exclusive use by the SSD, results in higher efficiency. It's this teamwork that provides optimum performance.


Your Data In Good Hands


The P34A60 is engineered with LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check) coding, a powerful error correction code (ECC) algorithm, to keep data secure. Furthermore, End-To-End (E2E) data protection, to ensure that accessed and retrieved data are correct from start to finish, and a RAID engine, which provides an acceptable level of fault tolerance, work to enhance data integrity for greater reliability and stability.


A System Upgrade With Room For More


With an M.2 2280 (80mm) form factor, the P34A60's compact size allows for easy installation in laptops, small form factor PC systems, and some ultrabooks. And with up to a massive 2TB capacity option, it's an easy upgrade that can greatly expand your system's storage potential while also saving space for other components.
