In 2020 we reviewed the SK hynix Gold P31 Gen3 NVMe solid state drive and were so impressed with its value and performance that we gave it a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award! SK hynix hopes to continue that trend of great price and performance with their brand new Platinum P41 drive. This is a PCI-Express 4.0 drive that uses their new Aries controller in combination with 176-Layer TLC flash that gives you sequential read and write speeds of up to 7000MB/s and 6500MB/s respectively. Will this be the Gen4 drive in 2020? Read on as we find out!
Special thanks to SK hynix for providing the Platinum P41 Gen4 NVMe Solid State Drive to review.
The Platinum P41 comes in a small box with a platinum gem on the front and let us know its capacity, which is 2 TB. SK hynix will also offer this drive in 1 TB and 500 GB versions.
If we flip back we don’t actually have that much, but we can see that SK hynix does offer a 5-year warranty on the disc.
When we open the box and take everything out, we have the Platinum P41 drive, a user manual and warranty information.
