Ultra-fast PS5 compatible SSDs with up to 4TB storage capacity and a pre-installed heatsink

Silicon Power reveals its XPOWER XS79 PCIe 4.0 SSD

Silicon Power reveals its fastest PCIe 4.0 SSD

Silicon Power is bringing a new SSD to market, a drive that promises to deliver higher performance levels than any of their prior consumer-focused SSDs, offering sequential read speeds of up to 7,300 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 6,800 MB/s. That's approaching the limits of PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, a factor that will make this SSD amongst the fastest on the market until PCIe 5.0 SSDs become readily available.

This new SSD is the Silicon power XPOWER XS70, a PCIe 4.0 X4 SSD that uses 3D TLC NAND and will be available with capacities of 1TB, 2TB and 4TB. Additionally, this drive will ship with a pre-installed heatsink to keep the drive cool under sustained loads. This SSD and its heatsink are both PlayStation 5 compatible, which means that you can use this SSD to add up to 4TB of additional storage to your PlayStation 5 console. 

Below are the features of Silicon Power's XPOWER XS70 SSD. 


- PCIe Gen4 x4 interface with read speeds up to 7,300 MB/s and write speeds up to 6,800 MB/s
- Compatible with PlayStation 5 for additional storage expansion
- Unique heatsink design provides maximum heat dissipation and thermal management
- NVMe 1.4 support allows for higher performance, lower latency, and lower power consumption
- Available in massive storage capacity options ranging from 1 TB to 4 TB
- Supports DRAM Cache Buffer for improved sequential read/write and random read/write performance
- Supports LDPC and RAID engine technology for enhanced data integrity and stability
- Small form factor M.2 2280 (80 mm) allows for easy installation in laptops and small form factor PC systems

Silicon Power's XS70 SSD delivers everything that users should expect from a high-end M.2 NVMe SSD, though it is worth remembering that you will need a PC with PCIe 4.0 support for this SSD to run optimally. Under PCIe 3.0, the maximum sequential performance of this SSD will be halved.
