Silicon Power XD80 M.2 2280 2TB PCIe 3.0 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2022-09-25

The new XD80 2TB version from Silicon Power is very interesting, since it does not come with the previous controller but retains the same internal product code. As we have noted from the test results, the drive trades punches in terms of performance with the 1TB version while blank, but when filled to about 60% of its capacity, it falls a bit behind. We think that this can be attributed to the Realtek RTS5762 controller, which operates differently but unfortunately not a lot of info is available online about it.

Product Features:

Speed Ahead of The Competition

Featuring SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer, the XD80 peels rubber with blazing read/write speeds up to 3,400/3,000MB/s, respectively. Its high-speed PCIe Gen3x4 interface leaves traditional SATA III SSDs behind in the dust, giving hardcore gamers the competitive edge, they need to secure the win.

Eliminate Lag While Keeping It Cool

With NVMe 1.3 support, the XD80 delivers higher performance, lower latency, and lower power consumption for the smoothest gameplay without any lag. The durable aluminum heatsink provides maximum heat dissipation and thermal management. In fact, compared to SSDs without a heatsink, the XD80 keeps temperatures as much as 20% lower, maintaining its stability.

Better Performance with RAID Technology

To push beyond standard limits, the XD80 supports RAID technology and comes in massive storage capacity options up to 2TB. Even during the most highly demanding games, it will maintain system stability and data integrity to deliver maximum and reliable performance.

A Powerful System Upgrade with Room for More

With an M.2 2280 (80mm) form factor, the XD80's compact size allows for easy installation, while also saving space for other components. Coupled with its blazing speed and massive storage capacity options, it makes for an easy upgrade that's ready to handle the most intense gaming sessions.
